It’s no secret that Michael Bay is developing the fourth “Transformers” film, but we had to scratch our heads a bit when we heard that he’s getting a new cast and cutting the budget down by $30 million!
“It’s a new cast,” Michael said with a matter-of-fact tone to the Los Angeles Times about his plans for “Transformers 4”. “We’re moving on to something different.”
According to Michael’s plans, “reboot” is not the right word to describe the fourth installment. “I don’t want to say reboot because then people will think we’re doing a Spider-Man and starting from the beginning. We’re not. We’re taking the story that you’ve seen, the story we’ve told in three movies already, and we’re taking it in a new direction.”
Tyrese, one of the original stars of the franchise, told our PopStop TV News team exclusively that he wants to bring back his beloved character Sergeant Epps. “Transformers is my baby,” The model-turned-action-star told PopStop TV exclusively, “just like it is everybody else’s from the beginning, so I hope they don’t move forward without the original team. That would hurt me. That would cut me deep.”
The “Stay” singer also added, “I wanna do more than just a cameo. Michael will figure it out. I think they’re going to get it back.”
The film will be back but the old cast is definitely in jeopardy! The decision to cast a new team could be due to the fact that “Transformers 4” will have a smaller budget than its predecessors by “about $30 million”.
Just to switch things up even more, Michael hinted that the fourth one might take the Autobots and Deceopticons to outer space! “That feels like the way to go, doesn’t it? I want to go a little off, but I don’t want to go too sci-fi. I still want to keep it grounded. That’s what works in these movies, that’s what makes it accessible.”
“Tranformers 4” will be his last ride with Prime and friends, and I think Michael should bring back Tyrese and some of the more familiar faces for one last hurrah.
