While Michael Bay is currently putting the final touches on his upcoming buddy action comedy Pain and Gain and prepping for Transformers 4 afterward, the director has added another project to his to-do list.
Bekmambetov last helmed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Wanted. The script is being written by F. Scott Frazier, whose only writing credit thus far is a yet-to-be-released thriller, The Numbers Station starring Malin Akerman and John Cusack.
No release date has been set yet. Are you curious to see what the combination of Bay and Bekmambetov results in?
Speaking of release dates, Robert Rodriguez's sequel to the 2010 B-movie grindhouse hit Machete has nailed down a release date. Machete Kills is set to slash its way into theaters on September 13.
Joining Danny Trejo in the sequel are Amber Heard, Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Charlie Sheen, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr., Lady Gaga, William Sadler and Demian Bichir along with Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba reprising their roles from the first film.
