Age of Extinction
Transformers 4 - Michael Bay Tells Forbes No Reboot: We Keep the Transformers the Way they Were

By Jack on Saturday, February 02, 2013



And the story flips and flops and flops again on whether the fourth Transformers movie will be something new and fresh or something old and continuing. According to the interview Bay just did with Forbes Magazine, he's saying the reboot that Mark Wahlberg recently talked about is "No, that’s wrong." and went on to be specific about what we can expect to see, saying: " We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later." Stating that the original plan to change the look of the franchise has not changed and they would be doing things "smaller" this time.
Will that change the way you do anything on Transformers 4?

We’re going to start off smaller. There’s a brand new cast. To freshen the franchise we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom. The history of the first three movies is still there, we start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast...

So is 4 a reboot?

No, that’s wrong. We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go.

So there we have it, what we think is the last word on the subject of the reboot. In other words, it is not happening. There's a new cast of humans, but it appears we're going to be see the Transformers along the same lines that we did in the first three movies. How do you feel about this?

It would have been more exciting if they didn't change the end of DOTM during production.

Maybe we could have another Pretender this time and Michael Bay could be its host. He could be the perfect villain.

Maybe Liege Maximo will appear as a disciple of Unicron.

Who is the enemy? I mean that's the problem with saying the last movie was the last and killing off the antagonists...

Maybe it could at least be a smaller story without the fate of the world at stake? After all, they did that three times already.

But what can we expect from this direction, and how might it affect Transformers 5? Keep reading for some thoughts.
In what may be remembered as the least surprising news of 2015, it sounds like Michael Bay will be returning again for the next installment in the Transformers film series. At CinemaCon, Vice Chairman of Paramount Rob Moore was said to have "promised" theatre owners attending the event that Bay was already in the process of developing the next Transformers movie. It was previously reported that Bay had opted to take on a different project which would keep him from directing a fifth Transformers movie. Keep reading for more!
Entertainment Weekly confirms that Hasbro has hired writer Akiva Goldsman to head up the writing team that will work on expanding the Transformers movie world into a broader cinematic franchise. CEO Brian Goldner revealed this in Hasbro's quarterly earnings conference call yesterday, and added that Transformers 5 is expected in 2017. A director is not mentioned, and while Michael Bay was named in connection with the project in rumors it's entirely logical that the financially successful director would be consulted on what "his" franchise would do next.
