In a recent interview, Tyrese Gibson commented on the possible future of the Transformers franchise. On the much-discussed topic of the potential departure of Michael Bay he says that:
“There are no concepts, no direction, no nothing for Transfomers 4, because everyone has been so focused on Transformers: Dark of the Moon. But here is the safety net. Are you ready for this? Michael Bay decides to not come back for Transfomers 4. There is always Steven Spielberg! I am not saying that Steven Spielberg is for a fact going to direct Transfomers 4. But it is a beautiful safety net to know that one of the biggest, most respected directors in the world happens to be an executive producer on Transformers. He is someone who knows this world. And he could easily step in and direct Transfomers 4 if he decided to.
Take this as what it is – one actor’s comments that should Michael Bay not return to take the helm for Transformers 4, then executive producer Steven Spielberg might take the lead. But also bear in mind what Tyrese says about Transformers 4 – There has been no work done on it because everything they have is being put into making Dark of the Moon a success.
Elsewhere in the interview, Tyrese also confirms Mudflap and Skids are not in Dark of the Moon.
