While it is no surprise that many movie franchises today are set up in three picture deals (Spider-Man for example), it is interesting the studios would sign a three picture deal on Transformers based on fan love.
According to an interview with Shia LaBeouf, who plays Sam Witwicky, the thespian is under contract for Transformers 2 and 3.

It’s pretty much a sure bet your audience will follow you to Transformers.

Shia LaBeouf: “Yeah. The biggest movie in Hollywood. You don’t get bigger than $250 million robots blowing up the world. I don’t plan on making any other – I mean, I’m going to do Transformers 2 and 3 so that will be my Lord of the Rings.”

You’ve signed on to 2 and 3?

Shia LaBeouf: “Yeah, I’m gonna do it. That will be my Lord of the Rings and then I’ll just make indies the rest of my time, for a long time. Elijah [Wood’s] straight.

The movie will be released this summer with a reported $250 million budget.
