In an interview with MTV’s Josh Horowitz, Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed that there is indeed a fourth film in the works, with a projected release date of summer 2014. Also, Michael Bay (who helmed the other three movies) is on board to direct. While the Transfomers franchise launched both Shia LaBeouf and Megan Foxinto superstardom, it is highly unlikely they will be back for this one, as di Bonaventura referred to the as-yet-untitled film as a “reboot.”
So, have they started looking for Shia’s replacement?
Not exactly. di Bonaventura said they need a story first.
“You can’t pick characters if you don’t have a story.”
Makes sense to us!
He also touches a bit about how they’ll approach it and whether or not they’ll completely start from scratch. For more on the interview, check out the video.
Bay has also confirmed the notion of a fourth Transformers flick on his official site. According to the press release, the film will hit theaters June 29, 2014.
