    Interesting choice.

    After reading his wiki I'm confused as to why he was picked. He's nothing like Bay.

    Having said that, Hoo-bloody-Ray! A director that isn't Bay! At least he can't be any worse

    I really enjoyed Kubo and the Two Strings. I'm cautiously optimistic for the Bumblebee spin off film now.

    Same. But I hope to God this film won't kick me in the feels like Kubo did.

    Right in the feels was what was so great about Kubo and something that has been utterly lacking in the Bay-directed TF films! I'd rather have a movie that made me care too much about the characters than too little.

    Yes, but it's the director who calls the shots. The executive producer overseas finances (e.g. funding, accounts management, copyrights, royalties, budget etc.). It is the director who directs the making of a film. The director is also legally recognised as the author of a film.
    e.g.
    Stanley Kubrick's Clockwork Orange
    Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill
    Kurosawa Akira's Seven Samurai
    Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings
    George Lucas' Star Wars A New Hope, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, & Revenge of the Sith
    Irvin Kershner's Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back
    Richard Marquand's Star Wars Return of the Jedi
    JJ Abrams' Star Wars The Force Awakens
    Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Rogue One

    I've worked on a few student films and a short film before, and it is absolutely the director who calls all the shots.

    ok but what if you like the director but he still gets given a crap script? or instructions from higher up? does michael bay choose how much product placement goes into each movie and how intrusive it is? or how many scenes/shots that linger onto an attractive young female? etc?
