Don Murphy, the producer of all the Transformers movies has stated that the franchise is not over, and that Transformers 4 WILL NOT be a reboot. This is horrible news for me. I was not a fan of any of any of the three films, and I gave up hope in this franchise after the utter mess that was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. I really hope this doesn’t end up being the case, and that the studios are smart enough to reboot the series and deliver something fresh to the Transformers universe.
Hoping to see the next Transformers film offer a new take on the live-action version of everybody’s favorite Hasbro toys? That’s not going to happen. Even if director Michael Bay and star Shia LaBeouf are done with the series, Transformers 4 is coming and it’s going to continue down its current path of success.
Producer Don Murphy (Splice, Shoot ‘Em Up), who has served as producer on all three Transformers films to date, assures fans that the franchise isn’t getting a reboot and that it’s more likely to start up a second trilogy, following the same style we’re now accustomed to.
