The TRANSFORMERS franchise has been a good time for our robots in disguise, although many would argue that they haven't been more than meets the eye. That hasn't stopped people from going to their local cinemas and flooding the box-office with their dollars. There is no stopping this franchise, making it no surprise that a fourth film is being produced, with Michael Bay once again at the helm.
The film has some major fuel in it's fire, as the the writer of the last two films, Ehren Kruger, is returning to his post. The same can't be said about the star of the original three films, as Shia LeBeouf is definitely out.
It's really not much of a surprise that Kruger is coming back, and he is a good fit for the series, which really cares about the feedback from fans. I mean, response was largely negative about the second film, so they reworked things and fixed a lot of problems for the third film. Also not surprising, LeBeouf is finally moving on from the franchise, despite word that he might return now that Bay is back on board.
Upon speaking with Paramount president Adam Goodman, THR reported:
"The story is going in a different direction now. Ehren Kruger [who wrote the past two TRANFORMERS movies] is writing it for us, and we’re starting to engage, but I can’t say anything more."
I'm hoping that they go in a totally different direction with the fourth film. It's time for a major refresh at this point. Either way, I only want an explosion-filled good time from the film, and on that I'm sure they will deliver.
