If the fourth movie is intended to kick off a second trilogy, then it's much too early for Unicron. Maybe having him make a cameo appearance at the very end of it wouldn't be a horrible idea. Of course, Unicron would be a very difficult character to try to pull of in live action regardless, so they'd have to be very tactful with what angle they choose to approach him from.
If I had my way with it, I'd wager the easiest way to both please the fanboys, avoid overwhelming the average audience member, and save money on CGI would be to have explicitly change sizes during the film ala the AllSpark so that he'd be capable of, say, eating Pluto (actually, that wouldn't be a bad idea) and duking it out with the main characters on Earth. It might get rid of the awesome factor of characters going into space to fight a planet-sized robot, but it would make it cheaper and less overwhelming to have him land on Earth. As for why he'd land on Earth as opposed to eating it, perhaps he'd want to to get rid of a certain MacGuffin that's the only thing that could stop him...
Man, I'd love to write a movie about something like that. XD

It just means that they'd have to do a lot to separate him personality wise from Megatron, give him different goals, a substantially different appearance, etc. Of course, considering the movies' track record with this, it's very doubtful that any of that would be done to an effective degree. -.-
