Back in Feburary I told you that Michael Bay not only confirmed there would be a Transformers 4 movie, but that there would be practically no human cast and the film would be all about the bots. After hearing that news I actually thought there might be some promise for the next film with no hammy, over the top actor performances to muck things up. Well, it looks like I might have got hopeful too soon.
See, at first it was true that there would be no actual human actors in the next flick, but it turned out that Michael Bay started a full on BROmance with Mark Whalberg while filming the film “Pain & Gain”. In fact he loves his new BFF so much that he changed his mind and decided to give Mark “Say hello to your mother for me” Whalberg a starring role in Transfomers 4.
On his blog Bay makes sure to say that the story is still in its very early stages so Mr. Whalberg did not necessarily need to be written in to an already locked in script. I guess that makes sense since so far there are absolutely zero details known about what the story of the fourth film will be.
I just hope to god its better than the third…

Today in an announcement that made half the world shudder and the other half excited, the infamous Michael Bay confirmed on his own websitethat he has just signed a deal with Paramount Pictures to direct a fourth “Transformers” movie. As soon as he is done with a film starring Mark Walberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson he will begin work on the next adventure staring Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
It is unlikely that any of the human cast, namely Shia La Bouf will return. So if you are a fan of Shia (or you hate him) this could be good news either way (depending on how much you love Michael Bay’s films).
There is no news on if the writers from the first three films will return or what the plot of the next film will be. However, if Michael is smart he will look to the success of Transformers video games such as “War On Cybertron” and take the story back to the Autobot’s home planet.
What do you guys think of this story? Are you excited for another Transformers flick or does this news make you want to scoop your own eyes out? Feel free to express yourself in the comments.
