In a recent interview with TMZ, director Micheal Bay took some time to discuss the upcoming Transformers 4. He talked about casting Mark Wahlberg, and how Wahlberg would help take the movie in a new direction. The famed director went on to mention that the 4th installment will pick up 4 years after the events of Dark Of The Moon. It was a bit of interesting news, many naturally assumed that the film would take place many years into the future and would be inspired by the third season of the G1 Transformers cartoon series, but that appears to be incorrect. Bay also mentioned that Thursday, July 4th, 2014 is the actual release date. Not the June 27th, 2014 that has been previously reported. (Source: TMZ via ComingSoon.net)
In the wake of official word breaking that Mark Wahlberg has signed on to headline the upcoming Transformers 4, director Michael Bay spoke with TMZ about the upcoming blockbuster, revealing that the new franchise entry will pick up four years after the events of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
“The movie is going to continue four years from the attack on Chicago,” says Bay, “which was in the last movie. It’s going to have the same lineage, but it’s going in a full new direction. It actually feels very natural how it’s going in that direction… We’re doing a lot of things that are really going to make it fresh and feel new.”
