Glenn Morshower Talks Transformers 4 And 5 - Filming Starts December

Hot on the heels of Michael Bay interviews, another famous name from the Transformers Live Action Movie Franchise is talking about Transformers 4 and 5.

Actor Glenn Morshower had this to say to Examiner last weekend at the Con X KC in Kansas City, Missouri:

"After I did the opening ceremonies for the ride, Steven Spielberg walked up to me and chatted and said 'You know we've got you set to do the fourth one and probably the fifth one on the heels of that," said on how he was approached about the new sequels. "So, I guess in December we are on our way to making 4 and 5."

Update: Video from the interview is now available:


Back-To-Back shooting for movies (especially sequels) is not uncommon; famous examples being Back To The Future 2 & 3, The Matrix Reloaded & The Matrix Revolutions as well as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 & Part 2.

This latest development sheds a light on the statement made by Michael Bay himself, where he said Transformers 4 is "probably" the last Transformers movie he directs.

coooooooooool

4 and 5? Ooh.
Josh
Yessssssss

Love dat guy
wolverenz
I met him at work, he was really cool and very low key.
13 Primes
YAY!! I'm Glad he's Back!!!
SilverOptimus
5th one eh? Certainly explained this:

Quote:
Huff Post: Well, looking at how "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" did at the box office, it's obvious that people like these movies. So I can see your hesitation to give it up.
Michael Bay: Well, no, you've got to do different things in life. But it doesn't matter. This is probably the last one.
ThatOddGuy
.................Oh dear.

I hope they give Starscreamatron a rest.....Maybe do Overlord, or something unexpected, like Jhiaxus?
wolfe
Definitely one of the characters I don't mind returning.
Autovolt 127
Oh wow Morshower's staying.

I still can't believe they litterally named his character after him. It kind of seems lazy and a tad bit confusing. Probably doesn't help he played another dude in the first movie.
Chaos Prime
Alright. Well that's a big whatever. I never really paid that much attention to the character anyway.
grimmlock
Since he's already done the first three, I wouldn't want someone new to come in unless they were doing a reboot. Might as well keep going with the crap that we have.
TFW10
I'm glad he's returning and some past characters from the previous TF movies.

I'm not happy that TF4 and TF5 will be back to back.

I like to have a break in between similar movies or sequels so I can take it all in slowly.
st.ranger
We all know, that Mr. Ego will make "new trilogy". Nothing new for me. It will be still same action stupidity with dorky comedy. No more.
420bot
Only shooting 4 and 5 at the same time??

Why not shoot 6, 7, 8 and 9 at the same time as well.

It certainly wouldn't affect the overall quality.

I mean Bay and his crew keep saying that they are the hardest working people on planet Earth; that they work ten times harder than any job on the planet.. harder than Navy Seals, oil rig workers, fire-fighters, crab fisherman, and bomb squad police... I think it's time to prove it.

I say... and stay with me here b/c this gets wiggy; that Bay should just shoot six more TF movies all at once and be finally done with it.

He obviously is going to anyway.
daitarn red
i wait see tfs come headmasters , targetmasters , power masters in tf 5
Brunstar
How anyone could be excited for these movies after what Bay has done to them I can't understand.
Bahamut Prime
4 and 5? And welcome back Mr Morshower!
Jinx
Is it bad that I'd like to see how Unicron and Galvatron would be done Live Action?
Barricade24
Interesting...I am curious to see if Bay will be directing a fifth movie or if this will be his last like he has said before. Either way, this is interesting news indeed.
Crazy Ramjetty
did he just say 5?

Nope, he actually said... 9.
TWINTURBO
wow this could be good or a fail. I hope we get a decent figures out of it. I say overlord or galvatron for con;s or this will sux
nemesisconvoy
This news is pleasing to my optic sensors!!! But I would love to see Bruticus, Defensor, Superion and Menasor. Ultra Magnus, Cyclonus, Galvatron, Hot Rod, Prowl, Sunstreaker, Perceptor, Grimlock, Hound....Nemesis Prime!!!!
planetjacker
Meh. I'll probably see them but my interest in the live action movies is at an all time low. I haven't even watched ROTF or DOTM since opening night and I have the dvd for ROTF, never bothered with DOTM. I'm tired of Transformer movies where the bots are glorified set pieces.

It's good for those who are excited for it and I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
G1Jetfire
No matter how these movies are received, they continue to draw a big crowd. It makes sense to do two at a time and bring back human characters like Morshower. Hope the live action series ends on a high note. Or goes out with a bang rather than a whimper.

Im stoked for it, and I applaud your attitude towards the peeps that are into it. Better than the random "F%$# bay crap... Kudos

Im not sure how to take that news. I was really hoping for a span of time to pass so that the old bots pass on the torch and the humans all have a new cast.

Im just really hoping the 86' movie gets redone in a way in the beginning to pass the torch, or actually USE the 86' movie as a bridge. Wanna know what happens between TF3 and TF4? Watch the 86' movie...I would LOVE that, and they could capitolize on sales of the 86' movie again
Prime Jetscream
A fifth.
Shadowbreaker
Five?! I don't even want to think that far ahead...
Jakest123
Bay said he'd direct TF4. He didn't say how many parts TF4 would be :d
harrismonkey
Bay is never leaving. By the time he leaves, they won't want to make any more. (at least not with big enough budgets to include robots in them) How many series go past 5 to begin with?

First they promised a reboot.

Then same world but new characters without anyone returning.

Now we have strong reason to believe Moshower and Prime are back.

Or maybe he'll be playing a third character in the series (remember he plaid someone else in the first).

It's looking more and more like 4 and 5 will be more of the same (for better and for worse).

I bet Prime and BB are the main characters again with a new crew of bots standing behind them.

If we're lucky we'll at least get new villains and it won't just be Megatron back from the dead again. (seriously, would you put it past Bay?)

As much as it sounds like I'm complaining, I'll eat it up just the same as the last three, and my love/hate relation with his TF movies will contiue much the same way. (They've ALL been terrible- but the robots and fights are like crack to me)

I wonder if Hasbro will deal with toys differently or if we'll get more seas of BB and Prime once they realize Bay isn't doing anything different?

If we get a rumbling of heavy BB and Prime again I seriously may consider shorting Hasbro stock.

I should stop complaining. I'm fine with more of the same (except for what will happen to the toys- Hasbro has good reason to want new characters). I just think it's funny they're in denial at this point.

I like the way you think

Oh my goodness I am super excited. Merry Christmas to me!
Omnius
I'll be happy to see him back, he was one of the more likeable human characters.

Because they have different tastes to you? It happens, you know...

And the hyperbole starts all over again... (did it ever end?)

Oh God!

First he wasn't supposed to direct. Then he said he would direct TF 4, but THAT would be his last.

Now there's a possibility he may direct the 5th?!

Bullshit fans? Awesome? If I weren't so lazy I'd write a scathing three paragraph retort regarding the quality (or lack of) of Michael Bay's supposed movies. But, since I am lazy, I'll leave it at this: Go back under your rock and let the adults talk.

He wasn't going to do 3 either, remember?

I don't remember if he wasn't going to do 2 anymore.
Lazerwave
I'll believe a Transformers 4, I can't believe a 5th movie because Bay said the 4th is the last.
Jimmy88
I kinda thought that Mr. Bay would not let someone else take over the franchise
fallen_revenge
Awesome! This guy makes the movie a whole lot serious!
Avengers
I want 4,5 & 6 to involve all the newer transformers from the 1986 animated movie & season 3. maybe even throw in a few new characters from 1987.

Oh that was really mature. Can you tell that I'm being very sarcastic right now?

There are people (including myself) that like the movies. You are not the only opinion on the planet.
alicmodder
Come on guys, hold hands...LOL.
Let's face it, Bay is doing the 5th too, and he'll have some lame excuse with it, like that he was gracious enough to come back 'one last time' 'for the fans'. It'll be like Cher's 'farewell' tours for every movie after 4, at least as long as the interest is there to churn out more. XD
And as one of the few good Baybot molds, if we have more waves of Prime and Bumblebee, can we have another Leader Prime? With a trailer? Pweeeease?

No. That would make far to much sense.

Only way that will ever happen is when Takara decides to do a true original mold MP movie prime. (which certainly wouldn't be a shocker)

I want an apology for being called "misinformed" about 4&5 MONTHS AGO lol

I'll do it for them. We're sorry for thinking you was a troll or didn't believe you. You are legit and we'll be happy if you provide more news whenever you get the chance.

You are a troll clearly.

They aren't doing a TF 4 and 5.

They are doing a TF 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Get your facts together.
