The Hollywood Reporter broke a Jan. 25 story which said that Michael Bay will produce an anti-Trump movie that also portrays China in a positive light. This is interesting news because it provides a perfect opportunity to look at Bay’s relationship with China and, more importantly, the growing Chinese involvement in Hollywood.
THR reported that, “Universal has won a heated bidding war to pick up the rights to Little America, a futuristic adventure movie that has Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes on board to produce.”
The movie “is set in a dystopian future where a Donald Trump-like president has bankrupted America and China has called in its debts.” It then adds that “[t]he Asian giant now owns America and many Americans have immigrated to China looking for work.” The plot of the movie supposedly involves a Chinese billionaire hiring “a former American Force Recon member” “to go into an American ghetto and rescue his daughter.” . . .
