He may be busy right now gearing up for promoting his latest film Pain and Gain, but Michael Bay will never be shy of speaking about what we can expect from his final robots in disguise outing, Transformers 4. Speaking to Forbes before the Super Bowl yesterday, Bay admitted that an overhaul would be put into place regarding the film’s features, something that many fans have lusted for since the dreadfully mediocre Revenge Of The Fallen.
Immediately questioned on whether he was in fact rebooting the series for another director to follow up in the future, Bay was quick to unveil his plans for a franchise he has helped make into the biggest grossing of recent times.
No, that’s wrong. We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go.
Clearly Bay holds the future of the franchise in high regard and the idea of redesigning the characters conjures up a feeling of positivity and intrigue as we slowly approach the next film. He also went on to say how excited Mark Wahlberg is about the whole project and his reasons for signing on to a fourth film, after confirming he would in fact quit after the trilogy was complete.
Mark is really excited about it and it’s a great redesign. I said that 3 was going to be my last one. Paramount was letting me do Pain & Gain and the Transformers ride was opening at Universal and it was bittersweet to think of passing it off. I wanted to set it up on a really sure footing and to bring someone else in on that, it would have been overwhelming.
With a redesign clearly looking to shift Transformers into new realms in the film world, Michael Bay’s fourth outing may garner a vast amount of interest in audiences and there are no doubts that when Transformers 4 will once again reap the rewards in the box office.
Keep locked on to Filmoria for more Transformers 4 news as we here it.
