Most people don’t want a fourth Transformers movie. Those people didn’t really want a second or third either. But Transformers 4 is definitely happening and is coming out June 27, 2014 and the movie’s director Michael Bay insists that this will be his last Transformers movie (he said that about Revenge of the Fallen), but he’s also adamant that it will take a very different direction to the previous movies, and hopefully that new direction won’t include toilet humour and racist robots. He reiterated his point about a new direction in a recent interview with The Huffington Post, and talked about why he decided to return for the movie. Read his comments below:
“I thought I was done. Then the ride came out and the two-and-a-half-hour lines. And then you’re thinking, ‘Oh my God, someone’s going to take this over?’ And you start doing a lot of soul-searching… I’m thinking that if I do this last one, we set it on a new footing and we change a lot of things, but we keep the history of the three in place. But we broaden it so it can be set up and be carried on — it would have a better chance for survival, I guess… The bottom line is, when you go to Universal Studios and you have the two-and-a-half-hour line, it’s hard to give it up. You birth a baby and you want to carry it on.”
“We’re basically taking from the history of where it was, or where we left it in Chicago, and we’re going to carry it on from there.”
I’m sure you’re all aware of my definite dislike for Bay and his movies, so obviously I’m not excited for the new Transformers flick. Are you? Share your thoughts below.
