‘Transformers 4’ story to take place four years after the events in The Dark of the Moon.

While no official plot details have actually been reveled, Transformers 4 director Michael Bay recently spoke with  TMZ and revealed when the fourth film will actually be set. The setting helps clear up any misunderstandings about whether recently cast Mark Wahlberg will be replacing Shia LaBeouf’s role, or playing a brand new character. Turns out, and as expected, Wahlberg will be playing a brand new character. Here is what Bay said:

TMZ: So, any early idea of what the story is going to be on Transformers and how Mark… He’s not taking over Shia’s role?

MICHAEL BAY: No no. The movie will continue four years from the Attack on Chicago; which is in the last movie. So it’s going to still have the same lineage. And it’s going a full new direction and feels very natural how it’s going in that direction, there is no way you’re going to ever find out what the story because you don’t have to dig through my trash but I shredded my trash…

So there you have it, four years after The Dark of the Moon, with a script that already has the ‘trash’ label attached to it!

Production begins on the fourth film in Spring next year, and the film is expected to arrive in cinemas on 27th June 2014. Whether the film is actually any good is irrelevant, because it is guaranteed to make money no matter how good or bad it is. The last Transformers film made over a billion dollars at the box office, so there is no doubt the fourth film will do the same. However, and surprisingly, the fourth film has a much smaller budget, with Bay saying he intends to “scale back” on this one. Not sure what that means, I didn’t realise Bay was capable to scaling back. Surely the fourth film will be one great big action blockbuster like the others?

I am very excited to see what Wahlberg brings to the franchise though, very excited indeed.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
