Lorenzo di Bonaventura isn't so sure...
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says that he's hopeful that, contrary to popular belief, Michael Bay may not be making Transformers 4 his last film in the franchise. di Bonaventura told MTV that Bay's impending departure may not be a sure thing.
"I can't speak for Michael," di Bonaventura said. "I would hope he would [stick around]. It would be great. There's certainly something, in our design of this, that's going to be an ongoing story... As long as the audience shows up for us, there's a lot of stories still to be told."
Discussing the fourth film's goal--relaunch the franchise with brand-new characters while maintaining the continuity of the first three films--the producer said, "There's a lot of new elements. I wouldn't say that we completely changed this world and yet it's completely different. There are new characters. There are new situations. I don't think we revisit a single location."
The film stars Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor and will release on June 27th, 2014.
