Michael Bay has told Forbes that Transformers fans can expect to see things starting off ‘smaller’ when the fourth film in the franchise hits cinema screens next summer.
The director said that to freshen things up “we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom”.
“The history of the first three movies is still there,” Bay said. “We start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast.”
As for new cast member, Mark Whalberg, Bay said: “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.”
