TF4 will start a new trilogy
TRANSFORMERS 4 Casts Jack Reynor; New Trilogy Confirmed
"I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg. Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously, who does that? Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie WHAT RICHARD DID. This kid is the real deal.
Transformers 4 is not a reboot. That word has been floating around on the net. This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago. The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast. This Transformers will feel very different then the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.
New trilogy, old robots. Not sounding too bad, as long as they can rectify the "goofs" from the earlier two films.
so it is a trilogy and there will be TF5 AND tf6 and Bay will probably direct them (never a good idea to switch direxctors in the middle of a trilogy)
Why would anyone think a movie with a big "4" in the title would be a reboot?
Hehe, ohhh Michael, you almost make it sound like you care if your "stars" can actually act or not.
Well maybe this time they will plant the trilogy ahead of how they intend the story to go and aw who am I kidding!
In the sad, sad hopes that it's actually a Fantastic 4 reboot.
Tell that to the Star Wars Original Trilogy with three different directors.
Anyway, let's just get to filming. I need trailers already to confirm I won't see this.
Filming will start in April.
Three more Transformers movies sounds good to me.
3 new movies instead of 1...hell yeah!! im game.....more toys!!
They always throw in stuff like this because they know they have to convince a lot of people to give them another chance. Yet again.
If I fall for it this time, it's really my own fault.
The way i see it, this could be good. I can't wait for April.
ANOTHER triology by Michael Bay?!?
What is wrong with this world?
Dont really know much about Jack Reynor, but I see potential in him.
I'm happy about this. I enjoyed the Bay movies, even with their flaws.
Basically, Michael Bay is going to direct another Transformers trilogy. He pretty much alluded to that right there.
Hopefully this time there wont be a writers strike that screws them over half way through.
"We are embarking on a new trilogy"
Also 'we' means that he will likely be included in the entire second trilogy rather than leaving after 4 or 5 as we originally thought.
This feels like 'Prometheus' in terms of whether it will be a reboot... i guess the reason for new cast is that Sam and Carly have got married or left/moved/being killed.
Jack Reynor i've only seen in one film, but he is an 'ok' actor he can make you hate him ('Perks of being a wallflower') however will need to check out more of his acting before i decide whether to pay to see this film...
They are milking this film franchise till it dies... i still predict a minimum of 9 films in the series (6 before it moves onto another director)
Also, timeline time - based on the formula of the last few films;
TF4 - 2014
TF5 - 2016
TF6 - 2018/2019
Separate names with a comma.
