Recently Michael Bay talked about the latest Transformers movie which is due out during 2014. He confirmed there will be no human cast from the first three movies appearing in the forth; meaning we will have a whole set of new actors playing in the movie. Autobots and Decepticons will of course stay :). Also with that in mind the movie is said to be taking a whole new direction. The exact quote is:
“It’s not a reboot, that’s maybe the wrong word. I don’t want to say reboot because then people will think we’re doing a Spider Man and starting from the beginning. We’re not. We’re taking the story that you’ve seen and we’re taking it in a new direction.”
When asked if the movie will depart from Earth he said:
“That feels like the way to go, doesn’t it? I want to go a little off but I don’t want to go too sci-fi. I still want to keep it grounded. That’s what works in these movies, that’s what makes it accessible.”
The last thing he noted is that the budget for the movie is going to be about $30 mil. lighter then for Transformers 3.
