Michael Bay Talks Transformers 4 – New Cast, Plot And The Budget

After more than 3 months of silence from the web, Director Michael Bay talked a bit more about his upcoming movie; Transformers 4. For those who usually stay away even from the tiniest spoilers, this news post contains what he mentioned about the plot… you are warned.

“It’s not a reboot,” Bay said, reiterating that the new film will have an all-new cast. “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 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… We’re moving on to something different.”

Director Bay mentioned a bit about the plot as well…
“That feels like the way to go, doesn’t it?” says Bay. “I want to go a little off [the planet] but I don’t want to go too sci-fi. I still want to keep it grounded.”

And the budget is less than what was allocated for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. This time it’s a relatively small (in terms of movies like this) budget of $165 million.

    We know that composer Steve Jablonsky will be returning in TF4 as Composer, but Director Michael Bay states that the Next film will be set in Space, and he also said it is incorrect to call the new film a "reboot".

    A space travel theme film for Transformers 4? Seems allright.

    More interesting is that it's only a reboot in tone/content, while keeping the other 3 movies canon.

    Interesting move. Let's hope that it brings some fresh ideas into the franchise.

    Space sound's interesting.

    Lower budget, hopefully that means less explosions, and more story.
