Bay - Reports of Transformers 4 and 5 Are Not True
Peter Van - Wednesday, October 19, 2011


Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon Director Michael Bay has put the kibosh on the recent news that he is in discussion to work on a Transformers 4 and Transformers 5 in any capacity. "I am currently not talking to Paramount on T4 and T5 despite reports," he writes on his official website Shoot For the Edit. "I'm looking at a lot of possibilities coming my way right now [and] weighing options."

In the last week, Brian Goldner, CEO of Hasbro, Inc said that he is in "active discussions" with Michael Bay, Executive Producer of the franchise Steven Spielberg, and Paramount Pictures on the next entry into the Transformers live action franchise.

Citing sources close to the planning process, Variety reported just yesterday that Mr. Bay was going to come back and executive produce and possibly direct the fourth and fifth film back-to-back. Variety's sources even threw in the Jason Statham rumor again.


But it seems that Mr. Bay is looking towards something new called Pain and Gain, which is "low budget...true story crime thriller" that is "a very quick shoot and quite funny."

Variety has suggested that Mr. Bay would wrap up the aforementioned film before production of the two Transformers films back-to-back in late 2012, early 2013.

Also, for those of you that were wondering about the Transformers trilogy set, he just finished a three-disc set for that, too. So now that we can finally put Mr. Bay's rumored return to rest, we can move onto other things. Or can we?

I hear that, but it's okay because I am in fact the best and also irrefutably correct in everything I say and do always

Yeah, sometimes no matter what point you make, it's futile to talk your point. Narcissism is rampant in fandoms.

I actually took great pains to outline in detail events in the entire trilogy that showed a steady pattern of character developement leading to events in TF3. I made sure to cite in-context movie plot points so as to leave no room for speculation, only fact. For my trouble I was told repeatedly by o... read more

I think the reason those of us defended it as just war was due to the general confusion over killing your enemies during a war. Or at least that was my take.

Since it's sort of relevant, I want so say that I watched DOTM tonight. It was okay, the tentacle driller thing was annoying, but that made it fun to see Optimus Prime destroy it. However, right after that Optimus Prime gets tangled up in some steel cables. That was dangerously close to being... read more

Bay denying something is almost like confirmation. I feel like more of his denials have happened than not. Emerje

I'm not going to ignore the idea of part 4, makes way to much sense. Wo stars in it and such is rumor land until it's official announced. I've never minded humans in TF. After all, I'm a human.

This isn't the first time this rumor cropped up with Statham. I remember hearing about it before DoTM came out too.

After the recent trademarking of what's believed to be the Bumblebee Movie logo, Hasbro continues preparing for its 2018 cinematic outing with a new trademark reported by Transformers@TheMoon: Bee Vision. Really, what are the odds this isn't related to the Bumblebee Movie? With the trademark specifically calling out toy masks as a potential use, it looks like there'll be some type of roleplay-toy gimmick in next year's movie toys. Keep reading for the data!
The US Patent Office has received a registration for a new logo from Hasbro showing a stylized bee in gray. The logo is being trademarked for use in relation to "Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms" - the usual legal descriptor with USPTO for Transformers toys. So it looks like we've got the logo to go with next year's Bumblebee-themed Transformers side-story movie! Keep reading to see.

Weibo user NOTRAB has shared another update of photos featuring the just-revealed MPM-4 Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This batch focuses on answering one of the most important questions: How big is it? Particularly how tall compared to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus, long considered to be a high point in engineering this design. At the same time, these side by side comparisons should help dispel any notion of this being a retool of that prior figure, as every visible part between them is very clearly different. The photos are mirrored below, click through and check it out.
Following their Superior Optimus Prime statues what melds aspects of the Generation 1 and Movie characters. Prime 1 Studio bring us Superior Megatron. The teaser image doesn't give up a whole lot, with a look at what may be his chest plate, but we'll be seeing more of this guy soon enough.
