Producer Confirms Michael Bay For ‘Transformers 4’; Says Movie Will Be A Hybrid Reboot

Transformers

Whether or not another Transformers movie would be made or not was never really a question—the franchise has made over $2.5 billion at the box office, the latest installment, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, bringing in more than $1.1 billion alone. The real question was whether Michael Bay would return to direct for a fourth time, and what cast would be returning.

Now we have some answers by way of producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who spoke to MTV recently. The producer said that Bay will indeed be returning to direct Transformers 4, and that the movie would be arriving some time in 2014. This has since been confirmed by Paramount Pictures, who sent out a press release announcing Bay’s involvement and a June 29, 2014 release date.

But what’s perhaps even more interesting is the fact that di Bonaventura claimed that the fourth movie in the franchise would be a reboot. But instead of a full-on reboot, it would be something of a “hybrid” reboot.

He said:

Well I mean again it’s hybrid. It’s not the way—I’m not involved with Spider-Man but what I perceive Spider-Man to be is a redoing of the whole thing, [Transformers 4] is not. It’s an evolution. There’s still continuity that’s going on, and yet there’ll be a lot of new cast.

Whether there’s anybody from the [original] cast, we don’t even know yet. But the truth is, it’s gonna be a whole new story. The characters that would certainly come along would be Optimus and Bumblebee I’m sure.

Obviously with Bay involved it won’t be much of a reboot in terms of style, but stepping away from most (if not all) of the characters seen in the first three movies would help it to feel less stale.

Does a hybrid reboot for Transformers 4 help keep you interested in seeing it, or do you have no interest?
