Transformers sind fühlende, denkende Maschinenwesen aus den Weiten des Alls, die sich als technische Gerätschaften tarnen können, als Autos, Panzer oder Flugzeuge beispielsweise. Auf der Suche nach dem Energon Cube, dem Schlüssel für die Alleinherrschaft, fallen die grausamen Decepticon-Transformers über die Erde her und beginnen ihre Jagd auf den jungen Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf, u.a.

MichaelBay.com: Mark Wahlberg scheint - dank entsprechender Gerüchte - eine Rolle in "Transformers 4" zu bekommen...
E! Online sprach mit Josh Dushamel, der nicht daran glaubt, dass die alte Belegschaft im 4. Teil mitwirken wird...
[...] "I don't think anybody's doing it," Josh Duhamel told us last night at the launch party for Sony PlayStation's new PS Vita portable entertainment system. "I know Shia [LaBoeuf]'s not doing it. I don't think Tyrese or Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] or anybody else is doing it."
Of course, Duhamel isn't surprised that Paramount Pictures is continuing the franchise.
"Whenever these movies make that much money they're going to make as many as they can," he said. "[But] I haven't heard anything about it. They haven't called me." [...]

Via ShootForTheEdit.com kommentiert der Regisseur Michael Bay die letzte Meldung...
I am currently not talking to Paramount on T4 and T5 despite reports. I'm looking at a lot of possibilities coming my way right now weighing options. Most likely going to be doing the low budget Pain and Gain, a true story crime thriller. It's a very quick shoot and quite funny. Also just finishing the 3 disc set of the Transformer trilogy. [...]
Michael Bay is in final negotiations to direct a new Transformers film, insiders tell Vulture. In recent days, Bay has been assembling a cast for a long-gestating project that even predates Bay’s entry into planet-destroying, Pain and Gain, based on a three-part New Times story about the infamous "Sun Gym gang" a group of dimwitted Miami bodybuilders who kidnapped, tortured and robbed a Florida businessman but got their comeuppance when their left-for-dead victim hires a private eye to hunt them down. Insiders tell Vulture that Bay has been seeking to adapt the sordid revenge tale almost since its publication in 1999, and that it’s proving the major blandishment in getting Bay to commit to launching a new Transformers cycle. "Without Pain, there’s no tit for tat," explains one person familiar with the talks, "That’s Paramount’s leverage."
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."
If both deals make, we are told that Bay is likely to begin shooting Pain and Gain early almost immediately - as soon as early spring - and then pivot to a new sequence of Transformers by winter 2012. "Spielberg does this all the time," says our insider, "where you’re doing art development and visual effects tests on your next movie while you’re still shooting the current one. The beauty of Michael doing Pain and Gain is that there’s no [technical] complexity to it compared to Transformers." [...]

CS! berichtet über weitere Sequels...
Following this morning's report that says a third sequel to 2007's Transformers is in "active discussions," comes word, via Variety that the plan may actually be to shoot a fourth and a fifth film back to back. The same article also states that Shia LaBeouf is unlikely to return and that the franchise may instead place Jason Statham in a leading role, though no official negotiations have begun.
Michael Bay, meanwhile, is said to be interested in returning to direct but, again, nothing is official at this time. No matter what, Bay is likely to complete his next, Pain & Gain, before production on another Transformers would begin, potentially as early as late 2012.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon was an immense financial hit earlier this summer, reaching the fourth spot on the all-time worldwide box office list with $1.119 billion earned.

CS! berichtet über die US-Einspielergebnisse...
[...] Opening on Tuesday at 9pm in IMAX and 3D theaters, the movie brought in $5.5 million before midnight screenings, then added another $37.7 million on Wednesday, which was down nearly 39% from the opening of its predecessor Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen two years prior but also the biggest single day gross of 2011 so far. Helped by the four-day holiday weekend, the movie picked up on Friday with roughly $33 million leading to an estimated $97.4 million over the three-day weekend, besting the previous 4th of July record held by Sony's Spider-Man 2 with roughly $88 million. That three-day opening may be down 11% from the previous movie's opening weekend of $109 million, but with a better CinemaScore and reactions from audiences, it certainly picked up business from its opening on Wednesday. Including estimates for the 4th of July Monday, "Dark of the Moon" grossed $116.4 million over the extended four-day weekend bringing its total to $181.1 million for its first six (or so) days. It shouldn't have any problem becoming the first movie of 2011 to cross the $300 million mark.
Only time will tell if it will surpass Revenge of the Fallen's $400 million domestic gross, though. The previous "Transformers" sequel grossed $215 million in its first six days including the non-holiday Monday, while Spider-Man 2 ended up grossing $373 million domestically with a similar amount grossed in its first six days as "Dark of the Moon."
Internationally, Bay's latest brought in $244 million since opening earlier in the week, bringing its six-day worldwide total to $416 million. [...]
