It looks like a couple more Transformers films will be coming our way in the next few years. Variety reports that Hasbro is thinking of getting Michael Bay on board to film a fourth and fifth flick simultaneously — primarily because that shit saves money and churns out more shit with which to make money. It’s a bastardly cycle. So, even though Bay has said in the past that he wants to move away from this franchise after completing the trilogy, it sounds like he might be reconsidering. Shia LeBeouf is definitely out, though, so they’ve gotta find a new poster boy. While no offer has been made as of yet, rumor has it that Jason Statham might be the next person to jump in that hot seat.
Ehren Kruger, who wrote the screenplay for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, apparently have some working ideas already. Even though the majority of us would really rather not see another Bay Transformers flick, I’m sure we can all agree that NOBODY wants to see a Statham Transformers movie. Really.
Yes, Dark Side of the Moon grossed over $1 billion and sales of Transformers toys have skyrocketed with each film release… but fuck off already.
