Michael Bay confirmed for Transformers 4, which is coming in 2014
Yesterday, TRANSFORMERS producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura announced somewhat unsurprisingly that a fourth Transformers movie was coming in 2014. A few hours later, Michael Bay took to his website and confirmed that he will be the one to direct the film. Regarding his schedule, Bay said: “I have just concluded a deal with Paramount to do two movies, but it won’t be two ‘Transformers.’ I will first do ‘Pain & Gain’ with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Then I will do the next Transformers for release on June 29, 2014.”
We already knew about PAIN & GAIN, so now it’s time to start asking questions about what we can expect from a fourth Transformers film. Bonaventura was coy when questioned about it and hinted that it could be a reboot, or it could feature cast members from the original. Basically, it sounds like they have no idea what direction it’s going to go at this point. What we can assume with near 100% certainty is that Michael Bay received a ton of cash for this film.
I find myself defending Michael Bay more than most people, but even I have to sigh at the thought of him doing another Transformers movie. He’s done three already and he’s made his mark on the franchise. It would be nice to get some fresh blood behind the camera and have a different take on it.
