Michael Bay in talks for TRANSFORMERS 4 with Hasbro
It looks as though TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON is not going to be Michael Bay’s last Transformers movie like he previously stated. THR reports that Bay is currently in active discussions along with producer Steven Spielberg to develop a fourth Transformers film for Hasbro. The pressure for more films makes sense with the last film bringing in over a billion dollars so far. I can’t say I blame the change in heart either, I would do the same if I was offered a big payday.
Hasbro continues to develop other projects based on its brands. The company has MICRONAUTS, OUIJA, CANDYLAND, RISK, STRETCH ARMSTRONG, CLUE and MONOPOLY. Hasbro will continue to work with studio partners and will not start making its own films like Marvel has done.
At this time it’s not known if anyone from the first three Transformers films would reprise their roles in a fourth movie. The film could implement some completely new human characters. I would rather see Bay in the director’s chair because Hasbro will get someone else to do it if Bay declines the offer.
DARK OF THE MOON was the best film in the franchise, so lets hope a fourth film will be even better. What are your thoughts on Transformers 4 getting made with Bay in the directors chair?
