After yesterdays talk of Michael Bay wanting to direct a horror film, it now appears the blockbusting director will first follow-up his forthcoming sci-fi sequel TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION with a historical action-thriller set during World War II. The film currently has the moniker of SABOTAGE and is based on Neal Bascomb’s non-fiction novel ‘Sabotage: A Genius Scientist, His Band of Young Commandos, and the Mission to to Kill Hitler’s Super Bomb’. It’s a project again being set up at Bay’s usual studio home of Paramount Pictures.
SABOTAGE is actually a true-story that’s been brought to the big-screen twice before – 1948 Norwegian documentary-styled production, THE FIGHT OVER THE HEAVY WATER and the more action-orinatated classic THE HEROES OF TELEMARK (1968), which starred Kirk Douglas, Richard Harris, Ulla Jacobsson and Michael Redgrave.
