MICHAEL BAY ON ‘TRANSFORMER 4’
After much speculation on Michael Bay’s plans for his Transformers’ franchise, it would appear that Bay has a clear plan of action.
“It’s not a reboot, that’s maybe the wrong word. I don’t want to say reboot because then people will think we’re doing a Spider-Man and starting from the beginning. We’re not. We’re taking the story that you’ve seen - the story we’ve told in three movies already - and we’re taking it in a new direction. But we’re leaving those three as the history. It all still counts. I met with the writer before I went off to do Pain and Gain and we talked about a bunch of ideas. We let that simmer for a bit. He’s been thinking about stuff and now we’re getting back together next week to see what we’ve got and to see if it gels.” — movieweb
Bay also plans on scaling back the budget with the 4th installment, with a budget that is estimated to be $30 million less than the last installment. The film will be released on June 29th, 2014.
I am so not interested in seeing another installment.
