Many people are wondering what the future has in store for the ‘Transformers’ franchise. Today Michael Bay has spoken about several things regarding the the next installment. Bay hints about the plot, setting, budget, and more.
Here’s what he told the Los Angeles Times.
“It’s not a reboot, that’s maybe the wrong word. I don’t want to say reboot because then people will think we’re doing a Spider-Man and starting from the beginning. We’re not. We’re taking the story that you’ve seen – the story we’ve told in three movies already – and we’re taking it in a new direction. But we’re leaving those three as the history. It all still counts. I met with the writer before I went off to do Pain and Gain and we talked about a bunch of ideas. We let that simmer for a bit. He’s been thinking about stuff and now we’re getting back together next week to see what we’ve got and to see if it gels.”
Bay was asked if we would see more of Cybertron in T4.
“I think so, yeah, a little. That feels like the way to go, doesn’t it? I want to go a little off but I don’t want to go too sci-fi. I still want to keep it grounded. That’s what works in these movies, that’s what makes it accessible.”
And the budget?
“It’s going to be less, actually. Our mandate is to cut about $30 million.”
Will this be the ‘Transformers 4′ film the fans where hopping for? Do you prefer a reboot? Let us know.
‘Transformers 4′ opens in theaters on June 29th, 2014. It will be directed by Michael Bay and we don’t know who it stars.
