Then I will do the next Transformers for release on June 27, 2014.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Feb.13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Paramount Pictures announced today that director Michael Bay has signed a two-picture deal with the studio, which will commence this spring with the filming of “Pain and Gain,” and will be followed by the next installment in the hit “Transformers” franchise.

Based on a true story, “Pain and Gain” follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida. First told in an article from the Miami New Times, “Pain and Gain,” will be directed by Bay and will star Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Expected to begin production in early spring, the movie’s producers include Bay, Donald De Line and Ian Bryce.

Following “Pain and Gain,” Bay will bring audiences a new take on the “Transformers” franchise as he begins production on the fourth installment in the hit series of movies based on the best-selling Hasbro toyline. The third, and most recent installment of the franchise, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” is the fourth highest global grossing film of all time with 1.124 billion dollars of worldwide box office success. Directed by Bay, the movie will re-unite the filmmaking team from the hit franchise, including producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto and Ian Bryce; and executive producers Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. Paramount Pictures will release the film on June 27th, 2014.

“Michael has been working on PAIN AND GAIN for a number of years but has patiently waited for the perfect casting to trigger a start,” said Adam Goodman, President of Paramount’s Film Group. “Clearly his patience has paid off as we couldn’t be more excited about this combo. His passion for this project is just awesome.”

    To be honest, this seems more like a "SUPER SPECIAL INSIDER TELLS US" story than anything else, with a bit of fact sprinkled in about Pain and Gain that was previously hinted at through other sources.

    Seems to me like they are just looking at a trend. Michael Bay wants to take a rest at least, so I think the trend might be broken. Though 2014 is the 30th anniversary year. Would make sense for a new feature to tie in. Not sure if that is a good thing given how RotF overshadowed the 25th though.

    I agree

    I think this qualifies as the most reliable info we've seen so far, but it's still not quite official enough to be for sure.

    It seems that anytime Hasbro celebrates a milestone in Transformers something bad happens to it.

    2004- 20 years of Transformers- Energon comes out.
    2009- 25 years of Transformers- Animated cancelled and RoTF comes out.

    And what if every second live action Transformers film sucks?
