Michael Bay will adapt the sci-fi novel TIME SALVAGER

Michael Bay may recently be best known for his obnoxious and idiotic "Transformers" movies. But while he's still involved (in one way or another) with the continuation of that franchise, he is also targeting to adapt the sci-fi novel "Time Salvager" [hit the jump to continue]

Bay is attached to helm an adaptation of the upcoming Wesley Chu novel "Time Salvager" for Paramount Pictures, with Bay’s Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian producing.

Here is the long synopsis for "Time Salvager"...
Convicted criminal James Griffin-Mars is no one’s hero. In his time, Earth is a toxic, abandoned world and humans have fled into the outer solar system to survive, eking out a fragile, doomed existence among the other planets and their moons. Those responsible for delaying humanity’s demise believe time travel holds the key, and they have identified James, troubled though he is, as one of a select and expendable few ideally suited for the most dangerous job in history.

James is a chronman, undertaking missions into Earth's past to recover resources and treasure without altering the timeline. The laws governing use of time travel are absolute; break any one of them and, one way or another, your life is over. Most chronmen never reach old age; the stress of each jump through time, compounded by the risk to themselves and to the future, means that many chronmen rapidly reach their breaking point, and James Griffin-Mars is nearing his.

On a final mission that is to secure his retirement, James meets Elise Kim, an intriguing scientist from a previous century, who is fated to die during the destruction of an oceanic rig. Against his training and his common sense, and in violation of the chronmen’s highest law, James brings Elise back to the future with him, saving her life, but turning them both into fugitives. Remaining free means losing themselves in the wild and poisonous wastes of Earth, somehow finding allies, and perhaps discovering what hope may yet remain for humanity's home world.

As for Transformers, Bay is just "attached" to the project, and again Paramount is hoping that he returns for Transformers 5 because with Bay at the helm, those movies make the studio billions of dollars. For now, Bay is currently in production on his Benghazi action-drama "13 Hours", which stars John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, and Max Martini.
