Depending on whether you were happy or sad when Michael Bay announced that Transformers 3 was going to be his last installment of the giant-robots-punching-each-other franchise, you will probably be either sad or happy to hear that that is now not the case. It should come as no surprise, though. Rumors were swirling late last year that the studio was looking to bring the director back for a fourth film, even though everyone denied it at the time.
The director confirmed on his official site that he has signed on with Paramount Pictures to do a fourth film.
There has been a lot of speculation about what I’m going to do next and when or if I will do another Transformers. So let me set the record straight.
I have just concluded a deal with Paramount to do two movies, but it won’t be two Transformers.
I will first do ‘Pain & Gain‘ with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Then I will do the next Transformers for release on June 29, 2014.
So, Transformers 4 doesn’t have a script or a cast, but it has a release date. That always bodes well.
