Michael Bay Talks 'Transformers 4,' Which Will Return to Space and Not Be a Reboot

Like it or not, Michael Bay is getting set to head into pre-production work for Transformers 4 this summer. He spoke to the L.A. Times about the film while promoting the Transformers ride at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Among the new bits of info learned from the interview include the film partially taking place in space and for about $30 million less than Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The budget on that film was just under $200 million.

"I don't want to go too sci-fi. I still want to keep it grounded. That's what works in these movies,  that's what makes them accessible."

We already know that the fourth film will feature an entirely new cast, but Bay said that it shouldn't be considered a reboot.

"It's not a reboot, that's maybe the wrong word. I don't want to say reboot because then people will think we're doing a Spider-Man and starting from the beginning. We're not. We're taking the story that you've seen – the story we've told in the three movies already – and we're taking it in a new direction. But we're leaving those three as the history. It all still counts."

Bay reiterated that this would be his final Transformers movie.

"Here's the thing, it's tough to find someone who's done these kind of movies and to have the complication of creating the new stuff that needs to be in this movie – not just the characters but a new type of action, I hope – and that's a lot for someone new to bite off. And so after this one I will leave it in the best hands possible. That's the plan."

Of course, Bay said the third film would be his final film and before that, stated he would be done after the second film. He says he came back for Revenge of the Fallen because the final product was "kind of a mess" following the writer's strike. He said pride brought him back with something to prove. This time, he returned partly because "so many people rely on the franchise as an economic engine now that he felt walking away would have been like shutting down a town factory." That, and a $75 million paycheck plus royalties were awaiting him.

Transformers 4 will be released in June2014. Are you looking forward to another Transformers movie?
