According to NYMag.com, Michael Bay is VERY close to signing a deal for Transformers 4.
Claude Brodesser-Akner wrote:Another insider familiar with the situation cautioned that while Paramount “does not have a closed deal” with Bay, the studio “is not far from closing” on one either, and that an announcement could come as early as next week. Meanwhile, the details of the next cyborg saga are being kept secret, but we’re told that it is definitely not a prequel, and that it will delve deeper into Transformers canon to mine older characters and lore. "Regular people might not care about bringing out a character like Sentinel Prime," says one of our insiders, referring to the little-known character who played a major part in last summer’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, "But believe me, fans of the series cared."

Michael Bay answers questions at the Premiere of the new Tranformers The Ride. When asked about a potential 4th and 5th movie he responds:
"...We are talkin’ about it. But there is no, nothing right now. I’m gonna do a tiny movie first. Then we’ll talk about it if I potentially do it. If I do 4, not saying I am, but just… er… if I were to, I would make sure it would be state-of-the-art of whatever the new greatest thing in 3D, how you do it..."
He also touches briefly on a "small" movie he is doing first and then he will know more about a 4th movie with Steven Spielberg. The small movie might just be Bad Boys 3, who knows?
Check out the video interview and see his explosive entrance and impressive Bumblebee and Optimus Prime escorts.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It's time for a new episode of the Seibertron.comTwincast/Podcast, featuring Counterpunch, Jon3.0, Tigertracks, Seibertron and Razorclaw.
We have another week thick with news, but first we do a bit of housekeeping, and discuss the emails that Razorclaw received at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the last episode's discussion of TFC Toys' Hercules and Maketoy's Giant figures. We answer some listener emails from joevill, rpetras, and Ariel Brenman. Will Razorclaw be swayed? Listen to find out!
In terms of news, we get angry at Counterpunch for finding the brand new Transformers Prime Arcee, Bumblebee, and Starscream deluxe class toys at his local Toys R Us.
Finally, we discuss our featured topic for this podcast - "Holy Grails", hot on the heels of Seibertron's recent purchases of Grand Maximus and Black Zarak. Ryan's purchase of Grand Maximus ends a 15 year hunt that began back in 1996.
The Podcast staff follows suit discussing each of their currently owned and desired Holy Grails.
