UPDATE: Michael Bay In Negotiations To Return For A Fourth TRANSFORMERS Movie

<font color="red">UPDATE:</font> Michael Bay In Negotiations To Return For A Fourth TRANSFORMERS Movie

Vulture is reporting that director Michael Bay is in final negotiations for his fourth 'Transformers' movie. Filming could begin as soon as the winter of 2012.



UPDATE: Michael Bay has posted the following on his blog, shootfortheedit.com.
Right now I'm not decided on Transformers 4
"Studio's are passing rumors but I'm not sure what I'm doing? I know I'm going to do Pain and Gain early spring but that's it for right now. I'm leaving all my options on the table. I've got several Studio meetings in the next two weeks." - Michael Bay


Vulture is reporting that the king of orange/blue lighting and sunsets is about seal up a deal that would bring him back for a fourth Transformers. The director is currently working on a much smaller project, Pain and Gain. It is believe that Pain and Gain isn't very complex and he'll be able to work on pre-production for his fourth rock'em sock'em robots extravaganza while filming Pain.

According to the insiders over at Vulture, director Michael Bay has wanted to adapt Pain and Gain almost since its publication in 1999. The sources says, "Without Pain, there’s no tit for tat. That’s Paramount’s leverage."

Paramount “does not have a closed deal” with Bay yet, but an official announcement could come as early as next week. Details on the next part of the Transformers chapter are still a secret. The site goes to say that it will go deeper into the Transformers mythos, and that it will not be a prequel.

"Regular people might not care about bringing out a character like Sentinel Prime," says one of our insiders, referring to the little-known character who played a major part in last summer’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, "But believe me, fans of the series cared."


If both projects come to a deal, Bay may start shooting Pain and Gain as early as next spring. After that, he would start filming the new Transformers movie by winter of 2012.

"Spielberg does this all the time," says our insider, "where you’re doing art development and visual effects tests on your next movie while you’re still shooting the current one. The beauty of Michael doing Pain and Gain is that there’s no [technical] complexity to it compared to Transformers."

DioFoRio - 12/6/2011, 8:13 PM
those movies were at least better than the original cartoon. Go back and watch it.....I didn't think so
Tainted87 - 12/6/2011, 8:14 PM


Come on... a prequel? Really? Anyone remember the beginning of Dark of the Moon where they showed Sentinel Prime's ship escaping Cybertron under fire? Could ANYONE tell a single Cybertronian apart?

Give Transformers a break, please. Wait a little while. Do a CG animated movie. Make it set on Cybertron during their civil war.

News for the brain dead....and my third post.
GodzillaKart - 12/6/2011, 8:19 PM
Seriously though. Bay's goal is to make shit movies that give their viewers constant strokes. If you like them you HAVE to consider becoming a buddhist.

I'm not saying the story is great,but the special effects our awesome.
MrBlueSky - 12/6/2011, 8:26 PM


We have to suffer another one of Bay's shitty movies? Here's an idea: scrap the project, wait five years, and do a reboot that focuses on the frakkin' Transformers!!

@jjmeylar
How about you?
SpiderBat209 - 12/6/2011, 8:39 PM
What threat is left for the Autobots to fight?

Unicron? That Space Plague that turns everbody red? Didn't the Smurfs battle that same red plague?

Smurfs vs Transformers crossover?!

This franchise is DOOMED. :P

Oh, No! I'm so frustrated by this news, I'm double quoting! :(
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 12/6/2011, 8:55 PM
I would be interested in seeing a prequel. Although I don't know how Bay will shoehorn in a scantly clad 20 something year old model in a prequel. Actually, if there was a prequel wouldn't it be considered and animated movie since it would probably only take place on cybertron?
Tainted87 - 12/6/2011, 8:56 PM
Exactly, there's just nowhere else to go. All the Decepticons are dead.

Truthfully, regardless of the slow-mo explosions, Shia shouting in repetition, countless lens-flares, stupid homophobic humor.... what I took from the movies was Starscream (my favorite character in any series) grovelling before Megatron, only for Megatron to either dismiss him or dominate him in some manner. It's like a staple of Transformers. Starscream will always be the sycophantic second who openly wants to stab Megatron in the back and take control; whereas Megatron will always dominate him in some comical way. Dark of the Moon should have ended with Megatron fighting Sentinel Prime, only to be shot in the back by Starscream. Instead, every other character was sacrificed in order to make Optimus and Bumblebee look like a bunch of badasses.
