With the divorce rates so high, I really have a good feeling about these two. Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes and Paramount Pictures have finally decided to tie the knot.

Platinum Dunes and Paramount Sign First Look Deal

Paramount has more reason than just Transformers to stay close to Bay and Platinum Dunes. The banner has a well-established track record for mobilizing low-cost, high-budget genre films, most of them remakes of horror classics that include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, The Amityville Horror and the recently completed reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which stars Jackie Early Haley; the same guy who played Rorschach in Watchmen.

Michael Bay has no problem acknowledging how well they've done for the studio.

“We offer a valuable service to the studio, especially with all this turmoil going on in the business right now, in that we do things cheaply, and we’ve had a lot of success with it,” Bay said. “Through the first two `Transformers’ films, I’ve gotten to know the studio very well, and I’ve got a good rhythm with them. I’m excited about this.”

The first-look deal with Platinum Dunes is the first for Adam Goodman since he became president of Paramount.
