Transformers: Age of Extinction
Although 'Transformers 4' will undoubtedly have plenty of giant robots turning into cars and fighting each other, there will be no shortage of human interaction (i.e. screaming and yelling) between the scenes of carnage. At least we know that some of that screaming and yelling will be dignified and classy thanks to the casting of Kelsey Grammer as the film's human villain.
Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain' arrived in theaters this weekend, so naturally, everyone is asking him about 'Transformers 4' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.' Although both films don't arrive until 2014, Bay offered additional information about them that will possibly ease the jittery nerves of fanboys all over the world.
Director Michael Bay is currently making the press rounds for the upcoming 'Pain and Gain' and, naturally, he's getting asked about the about-to-shoot 'Transformers 4.' Although Bay has remained mum on details so far, he described the upcoming film in three words that will get fans' imaginations running.
Director Michael Bay has promised that 'Transformers 4' (which we still can't believe isn't called 'Tr4snformers') will take the series in a new direction and the casting shows that he isn't kidding. Gone are Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, in are Mark Wahlberg and the previously rumored but now confirmed Nicola Peltz.
'Transformers 4' - the sorta sequel/reboot to the mega-franchise - is gearing up to shoot in Michigan this spring with Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor filling in for Shia LaBeouf. We haven't heard much about the film's plot (aside from the aforementioned "it's a sequel but it's also totally a reboot" notes from director Michael Bay) but today we have the 'Transformers 4' plot synopsis...and it sounds like pretty much all the other 'Transformers' movies.
Michael Bay is currently hard at work on 'Transformers 4' that will effectively reboot the franchise while remaining true to the three films that came before it. In order to forge a connection between the original and new trilogy, it looks like Bay will bring back at least one castmember from the first movies. And it sure isn't Shia!
Well, 'Transformers 4' is happening and Michael Bay is directing it and there's nothing the franchise's detractors can do stop it. All anyone can do now is wonder how long it'll take them to name it 'Tr4nsformers.' However, it looks like the next entry in the series will be a completely different experience...at least that's what Bay is saying.
