Transformers: Age of Extinction
'Transformers 4' is happening and while we don't know much about the film, we do know this much: it will be directed by Michael Bay, hence it will star a hot young girl. In previous installments it was Megan Fox or Isabel Lucas or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley but with an all new cast lined up for 'Transformers 4' (headed by Mark Wahlberg), Bay is out searched for fresh blood. So what girls does he have in his sights?
We don't know much about 'Transformers 4.' We know Michael Bay will be back (of course). We know that Mark Wahlberg will be replacing Shia LaBeouf as the human who gets the most lines between robot fights. We know that it'll most likely be more of the same, for better or for worse. But now we know a little more: Michael Bay spoke to TMZ about the film and revealed that part four will take place four years after the events of the last film.
Michael Bay played footsies for a while with doing more 'Transformers' movies, but has signed up for a fourth film, because... well, money. Lots and lots of it. Bay earned $80 Million from the first film (which is the lowest grossing film of the franchise), and gets 8% of the merchandising money, so it's safe to assume that he makes over $100 Million a sequel. But it looks like he's bringing in a new lead.
We're already well aware that 'Transformers 4' is going to be something of a reboot of the insanely successful franchise. Gone is Shia LaBeouf and the rest of the human cast in favor of a new set of characters and, from what has been implied, a new array of Transformers as well (it's also probably taking place in outer space). Specific story details are under wraps, but if what we're reading today proves to be true, then it looks like we'll have our first female lead in the series. After the break for more!
Michael Bay, much like Michael Corleone, thought he was out. But they pulled him back in. (And that, we promise, is the last time we’ll link Bay to ‘The Godfather’ movies. Ever.) His third ‘Transformers’ movie was going to be his last, but he’s returning for an as-yet-untitled 'Transformers 4,' and in a recent interview, Bay dropped a few hints as to what fans can expect.
