<i>Transformers</i> Producer Confirms That Franchise Will Not Be Rebooted

Find out what the producer of the Transformers movies has to say about the future of the franchise.

Transformers Producer Don Murphy has posted the following on his personal site:

What happens next? Certainly not a reboot. We haven't lost the Transformers. They didn't grow up or become expensive like Toby Maguire. I don't know what happens next. I'm pretty sure there will be a second trilogy. I am pretty sure it will kick ass. And I am pretty sure some of you will hate it because it wasn't all bots."

With Shia Labeouf and Michael Bay stating that Dark of the Moon was their last Transformers movie, how do you think the series will continue? Could there possibly be a time skip with Jason Statham, playing an older Sam Witwicky?

Could Statham be an older Sam Witwicky?
