Bay gives Transformers 4 update

February 3rd, 2013 by Marc Comments

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.”

Transformers 4 hits cinema screens on June 27, 2014.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
