Michael Bay is set to direct the film for Paramount Pictures, but this time the director says it will be his last film in the franchise. Paramount was able to entice Bay back by financing his next film Pain and Gain.
Ehren Kruger is once again writing the script for the film. The plan is to completely revamp the Transformer designs and make the robots the main attraction. The human elements of the first trilogy were the weakest elements, so I am interested in seeing how this turns out.
Transformers 4 arrives in theaters on June 27th, 2014 and will set up the franchise for future films. It may seem odd that a promo poster is being released now, but I remember the promo poster being released very early for the last film too. Dark Side of the Moon raked in $1.1 billion internationally, so I can understand why we are seeing this promo poster now.
