Michael Bay to Direct 'Transformers 4'; Franchise to Reboot with New Cast and a Whole New Story in 2014

There were some rumblings earlier today that the Transformers franchise would return to theaters during the summer of 2014, and now producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has all but confirmed that today to MTV in a video interview. He says that Michael Bay will return as director and the franchise will essentially reboot with a new cast and a whole new story, though some characters will naturally remain, like Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and probably more. Bonaventura was hesitant to commit to too much because he says they don't even have a story yet, however they have enough to know it's coming soon.

The producer was also sketchy on whether any of the original cast would return, saying he wasn't sure yet. We imagine it might be easier to drop an old cast member in there who could then toss it to a new cast, though with this franchise it doesn't really matter. No one was going to see Shia LaBeouf or Megan Fox on screen; they were going to watch robots beat the crap out of other robots. Michael Bay has proven he's capable of delivering just that, and so Paramount made sure to bring him back.

Unfortunately this means we don't get any other Michael Bay blockbusters in between since he'll be shooting his low-budget dark comedy Pain & Gain with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, though Transformers fans should be happy to have their directing savior back for at least one more installment. Check out the MTV interview below.

Where would you like to see the Transformers franchise go this time?
