Age of Extinction
Bay - Reports of Transformers 4 and 5 Are Not True

By Peter Van on 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?

Transformers 4: Lost Age is out in Japan, and TakaraTomy is supporting the movie with both toy commercials, and a themesong for the kids' line of figures: "Kakkoeasy!" It's one of those difficult to translate Japanese wordplays that combines the words "Kakkoii" ("handsome" or "cool-looking") and "Easy" (which is written "i-ji-" in Japanese.) Definitely a song for little kids, but one with the sinister potential to bore into your head and never leave. Keep reading to hear it for yourself and see the toy commericial too!
Autobase Aichi has posted a link to a YouTube video from the Japanese premiere events for Lost Age/Age of Extinction. It features both a crazy lightshow focused on the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee statues we've seen so much of since June, and Jack Reynor (Shane Dyson) and Nicola Peltz (Tessa Yeager) answering questions in English which were asked in Japanese and looking appropriately confused. Keep reading to see the video! UPDATE: Just added images from the event.
