Veteran producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura dropped a bombshell on MTV News today when he confirmed that long-running negotiations met with success and director Michael Bay agreed to return to director TRANSFORMERS 4.
Di Bonaventura, who produced all three Transformers movies, in addition to low-budget horror like The Devil Inside, Angelina Jolie’s Salt and the current thriller Man on a Ledge, even hinted to MTV that Transformers 4 would be a reboot of the franchise.
“I think we really are going to do a reboot there,” Di Bonaventura said. “But what that’s going to be, we don’t even know yet. We’ve got to get a story first.”
Earlier, Bay walked away from the director's chair and pledged to only produce Transformers 4 in order to direct his comedy Pain and Gain but clearly Di Bonaventura changed his mind.
With Bay changing his mind and returning to direct another Transformers movie, are you hopeful Shia LaBeouf will have a change of heart and return to the land of giant alien robots?
