Michael Bay Hints That TRANSFORMERS 4 Will Continue On From The Last Movie
We all read Michael Bay's statement from a while back, which stated that the third entry in the Transformers franchise - "Dark Of The Moon" - would be his last. Well, it won't be. In an interview with The Huffington Post, the director explains his reasons for returning. It has to do with a them-park ride or something..
Previous reports suggested that the fourth Transformers flick would reboot the franchise and feature an entirely new cast of humans and robots, but the man responsible for
inflicting upon bringing us the first 3 seems to contradict that..
"I thought I was done, then the ride came out and the two-and-a-half-hour lines. And then you're thinking, 'Oh my God, someone's going to take this over?' And you start doing a lot of soul-searching… I'm thinking that if I do this last one, we set it on a new footing and we change a lot of things, but we keep the history of the three in place. But we broaden it so it can be set up and be carried on -- it would have a better chance for survival, I guess… The bottom line is, when you go to Universal Studios and you have the two-and-a-half-hour line, it's hard to give it up. You birth a baby and you want to carry it on."
After saying that this fourth movie would "probably" be his last one, he reveals that those previous rumors of a whole new start for the franchise may well have been bogus, as he talks a little about the direction the screenplay is going - "We're basically taking from the history of where it was, or where we left it in Chicago, and we're going to carry it on from there." Doesn't sound much like a reboot to me. But it remains unlikely (at least from what we've heard) that any of the old cast members will return, so it seems as if we will get SOME type of new beginning.
