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?
