Michael Bay says changes are afoot for Transformers 4

Michael Bay has been discussing what we can expect from Transformers 4 , the first installment of a whole new trilogy, and, surprisingly, downscaling seems to be top of his agenda.

“We’re going to start off smaller,” explains Bay. “There’s a brand new cast. To freshen the franchise we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom. The history of the first three movies is still there, we start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast.

“Mark [ Wahlberg ] is really excited about it and it’s a great redesign,” continues the director. “I said that 3 was going to be my last one. Paramount was letting me do Pain & Gain and the Transformers ride was opening at Universal and it was bittersweet to think of passing it off. I wanted to set it up on a really sure footing and to bring someone else in on that, it would have been overwhelming.”

And while he’s not giving anything away in terms of plot, it’s clear that something fairly seismic has taken place in those four intervening years.

“We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later,” he says. “There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go.”
