Transformers 4 Hits Development Stage

Project Casting

Transformers 4, the latest instalment in the big robots hitting each other franchise, is still in the early development stage but that hasn’t stopped director Michael Bay throwing some of his ideas into the world to see what sticks.  The first, already known matter, is that the next film will see a new human cast.  That means no Shia LaBeouf, no Rosie ‘look at my nice legs’ Hunting-Whitely and presumably no Josh Duhamel.  There is no word on who the new human cast will be but rumours of Jason Statham coming aboard don’t seem to be going away anytime soon.  The other thing Bay has talked about is wanting to take Optimus and co off planet at bit.  He says he doesn’t want to go too sci-fi and keep it grounded in our reality but a journey through space could be on the cards.  Could Bay be taking the Autobots back to Cybertron?  Finally it looks like studio Paramount have slightly cut the budget from the last outing by about $30 Million which means that Bay may have to lose one of his normal 900 explosions and set-pieces.  So what do you think Filmjuicers?  Where would you like to see the Transformers go next?  Back to Cybertron or back in their box? Source – The Los Angeles Times
