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.
