Transformers 4 To Begin Filming May 2013


The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog is reporting that Transformers 4 will begin shooting in May 2013. This information comes via a Collider interview with Transformers 4 lead actor, Mark Wahlberg. Mark also goes into a little bit of detail on how him and Michael Bay ended up working together for the project:

“That’s why Transformers came about, because we had such a great time working together [on Pain and Gain]. We kind of complemented each other throughout the entire process, what he does and what I do and what we were able to do together, and then after that I was like ‘Dude we gotta work together again,’ and he was like, ‘Well I got a project, you interested?’ (laughs)”

“We’re shooting Transformers in May, and then I believe we’re gonna do Ted 2 right after. They’re working on it now and we’ve kind of gone through the negotiation process. The great thing about it is Seth’s ideas for the second one are sick. He comes from the world of episodic television so he knows how to tell the stories, man, in a way that most people don’t, like for instance The Italian Job we’ve been trying to do the sequel for 10 years. He’s a different kind of guy.”

    I'm going to say this before the pessimists start spewing their liquid anguish everywhere:

    Good news. I enjoyed Ted and can't wait for the sequel. TF4 is good news too. Sad though, yes, That I'm more interested in Ted 2 then TF4.

    Doesn't filming usually start around March? I wonder why it's so late.

    I think I'm more in the 'acceptance of disappointment' category because expecting a good script/story would be expecting something contrary to what he's already delivered in T1-3... Not saying all of it was bad. Just a good part of it. So, I'll still see it when the DVD releases. That way I can scan through all the "human" parts of the film that don't contribute to the over-all story-arc, which will be about 75% of the movie (if it follows the T1-3 models) and enjoy the remaining 25% (hopefully there'll be at least that much, any less... blech) minutes of 'Bots. Sigh.

    Perhaps things would be better if Hasbro had their own studio and could have more creative control from folks who actually 'care' about the franchise as well as wanting to make money. Could be wrong, shrug... studios are studios and execs are execs...

    Don't particularly want to be flamed for an opinion and I'm certainly not diss'ing anyone... just in case someone's thinking of aiming in this direction.
