MOVIES: Transformers 4 confirmed, Michael Bay on board

by

There was a lot of speculation running wild yesterday regarding the status of another Transformers movie.  Fortunately, Michael Bay addressed the blogosphere, the Twitterverse, and the Intardwebz, that confirmed our worst fear – Transformers 4 is real.

Bay posted the following message on his official website:

There has been a lot of speculation about what I’m going to do next and when or if I will do another Transformers. So let me set the record straight.

I have just concluded a deal with Paramount to do two movies, but it won’t be two Transformers.

I will first do ‘Pain & Gain’ with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Then I will do the next Transformers for release on June 29, 2014.

According to producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventurea, “…we’re going to try to do a hybrid there where there will be some characters that come forward–we think, we’re still in the process of figuring it out–and some characters that don’t, but it will definitely be a different story.”

So who is excited about June 29, 2014? With over a billion dollars at stake, Paramount has a lot riding on this franchise.
