Somebody unleashed a beast in Irish comedian Chris O'Dowd. The "Bridesmaids" funnyman, who shares the screen with "Transformers" star Megan Fox in both "Friends With Kids" and the upcoming "This Is Forty", isn't interested in playing politics. When asked about Bay and Fox's spat that led her to exit the multi-billion-dollar franchise, he selected his words in much the same way Bay directs his movies.

Oh, Michael Bay, you're just too predictable. After making Megan Fox parade around in skimpy clothes for no particular reason before cameras even rolled on 'Transformers' and later replacing her with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a model he shot in the desert for Victoria's Secret beforehand, the helmer has done it again casting Israeli supermodel Bar Paly as the female lead of his latest effort, "Pain And Gain."

While he’s one of our most respected actors -- who somehow has never received an Oscar nomination, that’s another story -- the world of feature filmmaking hasn’t been exactly kind to actor John Turturro.

Well, that didn't take long. Mere hours after producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed "Transformers 4" was coming, it seems a director and release date is all wrapped up and ready to go.

That Paramount wants another to make another "Transformers" film has been no secret, and much of the fall was peppered with various rumors (they were going to shoot two new films back-to-back, Jason Statham would star, shooting would begin at the end of 2012), but today comes something resembling more concrete word, even if it still leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

Update: Michael Bay has hit the Shooting For The Edit forums to address rumors about "Transformers 4," and for now, he says that's all they are: "Studio's are passing rumors but I'm not sure what I'm doing? I know I'm going to do Pain and Gain early spring but that's it for right now. I'm leaving all my options on the table. I've got several Studio meetings in the next two weeks."

So, what does a Michael Bay movie look like without $100 million dollars worth of explosions and Victoria's Secret models? We'll soon find out. The director is pushing ahead with plans to do a smaller film after his trilogy of "Transformers" movies and despite the low budget -- somewhere around $20 million bucks -- he may be getting two pretty big starts to help him out.

If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that Terry Gilliam is really, really grumpy. And or at least, very hilariously candid. Maybe it's the fact that he's constantly marginalized, besides having the oversized imagination and actor loyalty that would (you'd think) make him a big time Hollywood asset, or that every movie he's involved in seems to be an anguished, never-ending process that results in films as lackluster as "The Brothers Grimm" and "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus" (oof). While we haven't been able to depend on quality films (or indeed films at all) from him in the last couple of years, we can at least count on Gilliam shooting his mouth off about big time films and famous filmmakers, because, really, what can the establishment possibly do to him at this point?
