Transformers 4 latest
Might Michael Bay be back for more Transformers sequels? Our latest Transformers 4 round-up is right here...
With Michael Bay now all but done on his upcoming feature, Pain & Gain, there's just the small matter of the promotional tour for the movie to sort out. Then? It's full steam ahead on Transformers 4.
The new Transformers film, as has been known for some time, is going to be a little bit smaller, won't centre on the character of Sam (played by Shia LaBeouf), and will kickstart a new trilogy. Furthermore, Mark Wahlberg has already been cast in the film.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has been chatting about the film to MTV, and he said that "I wouldn't say we've completely changed this world, and yet it's completely different. There are new characters, new situations. I don't think we revisit a single location. Michael [Bay] has a great way of approaching this thing".
So: will this mark the end of Michael Bay's directing tenure on the Transformers franchise? Possibly not. "I can't speak for Michael. I hope he would [direct Transformers 5 and 6]". It's definitely going to be an "ongoing story".
di Bonaventura has refused to rule out a potential cameo for Shia LaBeouf in the film, although suggests it's unlikely. "You never known. Things are not set in stone", he told MTV.
Filming starts on Transformers 4 in May, and the film is set for release in June 2014.
