Transformers 4 producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has spoken to MTVabout the future of the series and said that Michael Bay’s departure from the franchise after the fourth film is far from a done deal.
“I can’t speak for Michael,” di Bonaventura said. “I would hope he would [stick around]. It would be great. There’s certainly something, in our design of this, that’s going to be an ongoing story… As long as the audience shows up for us, there’s a lot of stories still to be told.”
As regard the franchise and the fourth film in particular, he added: “There’s a lot of new elements. I wouldn’t say that we completely changed this world and yet it’s completely different. There are new characters. There are new situations. I don’t think we revisit a single location.”
Transformers 4 will be released on June 27, 2014.
