‘Transformers 4′ is Not a Reboot, Says the Movie’s Producer

Optimus Prime Transformers 4
Paramount Pictures

Transformers 4‘ has a brand new cast – gone are the Shia LaBeoufs and Megan Foxes – brand new robots and a complete redesign of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, but don’t call ‘Transformers 4′ a reboot. Even though, they don’t really know what you should be calling it. A reboot-quel?

‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura spoke to The Hollywood News to try and clear it all up, while not really clearing it up at all.

It’s definitely not a reboot. It’s an interesting question about what you should call it. It’s not a reboot, but a continuation, yet you’re continuing with a new cast and group of characters. It’s a very different dynamic than I’ve seen in a movie, I’m very curious. I guess Star Wars did that a little bit.

So, ‘Transformers 4′ is like ‘Star Wars‘ is what you’re saying.

He does clarify that this movie won’t completely ignore the “mythology” of the first three movies (and we use the word mythology very loosely) and will specifically acknowledge the destruction of Chicago in the last movie and the repercussions.

Whatever ‘Transformers 4′ is, you’ll get your first look at the new film during the 2014 Super Bowl when Paramount will debut the film’s first trailer.

‘Transformers 4,’ which stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Kelsey Grammer (!!), opens in theaters on June 27, 2014.
