Michael Bay talked about working with Tom Cruise

Michael Bay talked about working with Tom Cruise

Michael Bay has "talked about" working with Tom Cruise.

The 'Transformers: The Last Knight' director has had discussions about teaming up with the 'Mummy' star but admits his stunts are a bit too polished for his liking.

He said: "We've talked about. But I told Tom to his face ... I said, 'Tom, I know you rehearse your stunts over and over, but I like sloppy stunts.' So that would be the rub working with us - I wouldn't let him rehearse as much.

"I like my stunts to be dirty and messy, and not so ... [he sings the Mission: Impossible theme]. Look, with 'Mission: Impossible' I understand you need very choreographed stunts, but I like dirty, sloppy stunts."

And the 52-year-old filmmaker has insisted he is done with the Transformers franchise as he wants to "go out with a bang" and is looking forward to doing something "more serious and more adult" in the future.

He added to Fandango: "These movies that I've done, they are massive movies. They take a lot out of you. I've done it enough, and I've had a great time doing it. I'm going out with a bang on this one, and I feel like you gotta go out while you're ahead, you know. I think I've had a good run, and I've got a lot of other movies I want to do.

"I just read a very bloody hit man movie that was a page turner. That seems like a fun one to do. I love doing 13 Hours, I love doing Pain & Gain - I think it'll be something more serious and more adult, I guess."
