After rumors of a leaked Transformers IV script spread across the Internet yesterday, it was only a matter of time before someone asked director Michael Bay to confirm or deny the story. Bay beat them all to the punch by releasing the following statement on his official website:
“Some Internet sites this morning reported that some document recovery guy has found a legitimate 120 page script of Transformers 4. I can absolutely 100 percent say this is completely false. The only two people in the world that have our unfinished script are Kruger and myself. Also we are only up to page 70 in our T4 script. Maybe this guy has a cartoon or something else – but definitely not our movie!”
Back on December 6th, Bay had to clear up some casting rumors going around the Internet aboutNicola Peltz (The Last Airbender) and Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent). Stories that the two were cast as Mark Wahlberg‘s character’s daughter and her race car driver boyfriend.
“Actor announcement on some web sites last night about Transformer cast joining Mark are completely false.”
Principle filming is set to begin in May 2013 and Transformers 4 should hit theater screens June 27th, 2014.
