'Transformers 4' Will Take Place Four Years After 'Dark of the Moon'


The next Transformers movie will take place four years after the events of Dark of the Moon, says Michael Bay on the TMZ's live show Monday.

Bay says (via CinemaBlend) the fourth movie is "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."

Because of lagging toy sales, Hasbro decided resuscitate it by "rebooting" the next three Transformers movies with new robots and a different human cast. The only robots to return for the new series may be Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. The rest are sent to the Island of Misfit Toys.

The lead characters in the new movie are reportedly a high school senior and her race car-driving boyfriend, and the story may take the human and robot cast into space.

Mark Wahlberg was recently rumored to be in talks to play the female lead's father, but with Bay flip-flopping on that rumor, we're not really sure what role he will end up playing if he's in the movie at all.

Transformers 4 is aiming to go before the camera in the Spring of 2013 for a July 4, 2014 release.
