Transformers 4 won't hit theaters until June of 2014, but the rumors are already starting to fly. The latest rumor making the rounds originates from Spoiler TV and states that the new human leads will be a female high school senior and her boyfriend, a race car driver from Texas. Director Michael Bay has stated on several occasions that the film will feature a new cast, both human and robotic, but keep in mind that no source of any kind was cited. Multiple entertainment websites have picked up on this rumor and ran with it, but it should be taken with a grain of salt for the moment.

Spoiler TV wrote:It looks like Transformers 4 will have 2 new leads.

The new female lead that they are looking for is a high school senior and her boyfriend a Texas racing driver.

And I'm already cringing. Yikes.

Was looking forward to a new direction. But this sounds like more of the same problems that plagued the last 3 films. I love the TF movies in spite of their flaws, but was hoping for a truly new direction at this point. I knew Michael Bay was onboard but was hoping that he'd know to get away from the problems of the first 3 films.

Demographics and ASSUMED audience demand. With Shia the first time around, he wanted the audience to relate to the protag.

I don't know; maybe he thinks since ass-kicking hot chicks are popular among the anime/manga crowd (many of whom might also be TF fans), the new protag should be a high school girl.

OR, he just wanted to save on budget, and instead of hiring a lead actor and an obligatory piece of female eye candy, he'd just kill two birds with one stone.

The redneck BF is most likely just for comic relief.

Just theories, though.

P.S. I'm also pissed off that he didn't have a NEST agent star in TF4. I'm as tired of this high school alien-contact BS as you are.

You nailed it. Another commercialized pos with with the target market of core fans being far out of sight. The first bit of news, rumour or not, should have been about the Transformers themselves... :BANG_HEAD:

Just keep in mind that this is just a rumor at this point with according to the website, no real merit. Still a chance there could be a different direction taken.

Either way i don't think were going to get away from the boy girl love enterest. one way or another its going to make its way into the next few films. Thats just what the yound demographic demands now-a-days unfortunutly.

I've kept that in mind as well as the fact that I've been covering "news" and information about the live action Transformers films for almost 10 years. Hard to believe, huh? 2003 was the first time that we reported news about one of the live action Transformers films. What I've kept in mind is that I've often been disappointed after holding on to hope for certain things that the fanboy in me wants to see on the big screen.

This time around, I'm going to keep my expectations in check and will hopefully be pleasantly surprised.

this better not be true cause if it is then its already slated to suck more than the last 3, if bays bright idea is to just make sam into a girl than hes dumber & lazier than i thought. If your not going to ditch the humans then at least get rid of the damn kids, why cant we just have NEST soldiers as the main human characters? And dont tell me it wont work cause if that were the case GIJOE wouldve died out a long long time ago. Oh and for those of you saying "this is just a rumor" just look back at the last 3 movies and recall how many "rumors" were fact. Yes there is still a chance that this is just a rumor thats being thrown out there to see reactions or because someone was really bored but i wouldnt be at all surprised if its confirmed within the next few months.

At least they're still bringing up the little piece of story that it will go into outer space. Humans have very limited activity in space, so hopefully that will shift focus on the Transformers themselves. Maybe we'll see some cool space battles like in the Star Wars series, or the humans will be in only the 1st half or something...?

I'm glad the movies made money for Hasbro but I can't stand the sight of them.
They're all just that awful and hollow.

Hopefully whenever Bay quits there'll be a reboot years later by someone who doesn't make a jumbled laughingstock of the franchise.

Anyone else but me remember the "leaked" script to Transformers 3, with them going into space and much G1 goodness?
That's what people want. That's what would have skyrocketed Transformers into overdrive.

It's profitable right now, but the movies are just ass.

You're asking a lot from Michael Bay. He is one trick pony. The problems in the first three movies are in every Michael Bay movie. It's exactly why I refuse to give this movie a chance.

I'm not even sure "the people" know what they want. The theory that you can't want what you don't realize is possible is coming to mind. Experience tells me that the kind of garbage Michael Bay makes is what people expect, demonstrating lowered expectations by "the people" more than a true desire for this kind of movie.

In other words, I think they got what they expected and confused it with what they wanted.

I still refuse to believe people actually go to see an action sci-fi film expecting there to be a human love story. It's total bull. A film can focus on non-humans without problem, as long as they are well characterized. As a teen, I used to watch cartoons about dogs and superheroes and monsters on tv. Nowadays all I see on children's networks (ages 4-16 mind you) is high school crap about good-looking though unpopular quirky tweens. It sickens me what today's kids have to watch.

At the VERY least, if this movie sucks (which it 100% absolutely will. Let's not kid ourselves here, this will be our 4th time at the same rodeo), it will be an entire season saving money/catching up on back log figures. Also, more cash for third party beauties. That's as positive as I can spin it, lol.

Michael Bay is on the movie. Did we honestly expect anything other than a "bomb shell" teenager or young 20-something as the female lead?

It may be a rumor, but it doesn't surprise me.

No surprises here >:oP

Micheal already said in a behind the scenes feature on the first film that "If I want to paint a house green and other people tell me No! Don't do that, I'm gonna do it because its what I want."

I was excited at first when there where rumours that the fourth TF outing would be a reboot, sadly Mr. Bay came back to ruin alot of our hopes for a 'true' TF live action film. :BANG_HEAD: More garbage headed our way :SICK:

I feel I should refrain from watching this in the theatres, and urge others too so as to send a message that we're not going to keep handing our cash over for garbage. And as for people getting what they want, well, as mentioned, people don't know what they want, but they do succumb to extravagent marketing in the form of trailers and hype.

Looks like the rumor was true! Paramount is searching for a new female lead who can play the part of a high school senior age character and a new male lead to play the part of her boyfriend and Texas race car driver. See below courtesy of Acting-Auditions.org.

The casting call also confirms that TF4 will take place after the events in DOTM and that Peter Cullen and Glen Morshower will reprise their roles from the previous trilogy.

"Transformers 4" will begin filming in April or May 2012.
AB Media Publishing, LLC


Di Bonaventura Pictures and DreamWorks SKG in association with Hasbro are in development on the Paramount Pictures science fiction action film "Transformers 4". The casting directors are auditioning actors for the new lead roles in the film, as neither Shia LaBeouf or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are returning. The female lead role is an 18 year old or above who can play high school senior age, and the male lead is an early twenties Texas race car driver who plays the female lead's boyfriend. Shooting will take place in various locations beginning in April or May of 2013. This film is currently being referred to as "Untitled Transformers Sequel".

Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Michael Bay will return to direct his fourth installment of the film series from a screenplay written by Ehren Kruger, who also wrote "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon". Bay has said that this will be his final installment in the franchise, however Hasbro has stated that they would like to continue making additional Transformers films with or without Michael Bay. Writer Ehren Kruger's other credits include "Arlington Road," "Scream 3 & 4," "The Ring," "The Skeleton Key," and "The Brothers Grimm".

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg will again executive produce, along with Mark Vahradian for Di Bonaventura Pictures, and Brian Goldner for Hasbro. Producers are Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto, and Academy Award nominee Ian Bryce. Spielberg and Bryce have collaborated on other films including "Saving Private Ryan," for which they both won Golden Globe Awards. Bryce also worked as assistant director on the Spielberg directed film "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", and production manager on Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". More recently Bryce and Michael Bay both produced the Paramount Pictures feature film "Pain & Gain", on which Bay also directed.

There has been some speculation that "Transformers 4" and "Transformers 5" will be shot back-to-back with Michael Bay at the helm, however there has been no official confirmation of this. Hasbro CEO announced at the company’s third quarter earnings conference that they were actively discussing this strategy with Paramount, director Michael Bay and producer Steven Spielberg. Glenn Morshower, who appeared as General Morshower in the first three "Transformers" films stated that Bay and Spielberg were not only working on "Transformers 4", but more than likely "Transformers 5" as well. "Transformers 4" is scheduled to hit theaters on June 27, 2014.

I'd be cool with it, if it meant this was going to take off with Optimus + Wreckers = Wreckers + Optimus, and have Springer, Magnus, Kup and Whirl show up to take on Dreadwing, Bludgeon and Thunderwing. To fight for Cybertron's remnants only to end the movie with the arrival of the Chaos Bringer.


But I'm sure it will end up being a ten sex, angst, fart humors, robot testicled, steereotypical nightware DX bayexplosive robot jerk fest.
But still have no actual story that matches up, with anything, that has ever been written, or even match the other movies, even though this continues the story...

Everything I just read make me wanna :BANG_HEAD: ..... forever. I honestly would have liked DOTM until I read the book before the movie came out. Once I read the book and how awesome it was, the movie was destined to fail. So maybe this one will have a good book too. I'm gonna go ahead and say this as well: I bet Unicron shows up (possibly being drawn by what happened to Cybertron in DOTM) and reformats/fixes Megz into Galvatron. IMO.

Oh wait that'll never happen cause of the brain dead mindless masses out there that will see anything with explosions in it. Still say the only way to save the franchise is to wipe the slate clean wait a few years and star all over. Id rather go 2 or 3 years with out transformers if it ment getting something worth while.

You know, as someone who didn't mind the movies despite their problems, I am sick to death of people like you who corral people like me into a group and give them such a negative label.

I won't apologise to you for liking something you don't like, but seriously, people have different tastes to you. Deal with it.

This was probably covered years ago, but I was wondering if there was an explanation as to why Glen Morshower's character was called Colonel Sharp in the first movie but then General Morshower in that which followed. Obviously I'm interested more in the change of name than rank. Please tell me it wasn't a case of "...as far as we know there were no survivors [but we just so happen to have this General who's the spitting image of one of the dead guys]." :???:

Sharp and Morshower are 2 completely different characters, they just got Morshower to play both. Sharp was indeed killed in the base strike in the first movie. General Morshower is also in the military in real life for those that didn't know :)

Yeah, we need to take the hate away from our fellow fans, and keep it on Bay where it belongs. ;) :lol:

My dislike for the movies and toylines aside, I still know they pumped life into the franchise and kept the TF line going strong... so we could see the sidelines like (the amazing) Classics and FOC (and I actually like PowerCore as well... much fun.)

So somewhere in the back of my head, I know all that relentless barrage of horrible Bumblebee repaints sold to little kids helped fund the bots I'm buying.

So that tip of the hat extends to fellow fans like MegatronWolf. They're collecting movie stuff keeps the classics, FOC, masterpiece toys coming.

Actually, Classics was released in 2006, before the films. And before the Bumblebee Bombard.

and FOC (and I actually like PowerCore as well... much fun.)


FOC is a part of Generations, which is a successor to Classics. :)

But yeah, two more Bay-verse movies is kinda good news for me. Will be two more years of USA toys I can skip to save money and buy Takara's Masterpiece bots.


You shouldn't laugh at your own posts.

You know, as someone who didn't mind the movies despite their problems, I am sick to death of people like you who corral people like me into a group and give them such a negative label.

I won't apologise to you for liking something you don't like, but seriously, people have different tastes to you. Deal with it.


I agree, it's total nonsense to say that the ones saw it in theaters are stupid ignorant homeless people. I'm a first class transformers fan and I've seen it 3 times in cinemas.
I've enjoyed the 3 movies, 2 did have horrible moments and overall it doesn't come close to what High Moon did in FOC.

Still, whatever movie Mr. Bay ships out, I'll watch it, and probably 2 times more and buy the blu ray as soon as it hits ebay. And I'll buy all the onscreen figures, unless they cost 100 bucks (I hate you DOTM deluxe leadfoot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I don't understand the problem in doing so. :-|
