Update: Next ‘Transformers’ Sequel Film Eyed for 2014?

Update: Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura has confirmed to MTV News director Michael Bay will return to direct the next “Transformers” film. Scroll to the end of the article for the video interview.

Ready or not. Hasbro will be making another “Transformers” film.

ComingSoon.net caught up with “Transformers” producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura at the Hasbro event for Paramount’s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and got some juicy details about the next robot movie.

“We’ll be there in the summer of 2014,” Di Bonaventura confirmed.

As for director Michael Bay returning to the director’s chair, it sounds like it’s still up in the air.

“Michael had a debate because he sort of felt at first that he’d done three,” he explained. “Michael and I are both the same in that we always like to top ourselves. That doesn’t necessarily mean bigger. It can be bigger in places, it just means different, but we’re going to push really hard as fresh and new as we can be.”

Di Bonaventura did mention that the new sequel may be similar to the “G.I. Joe” sequel in which only having a few characters returning with a new plotline and not necessarily rebooting the entire franchise.

“Again, we’re going to try to do a hybrid there where there will be some characters that come forward—we think, we’re still in the process of figuring it out—and some characters that don’t, but it will definitely be a different story,” he said.

The producer also confirmed the action film sequel “RED 2,” will beginning to shoot in the fall, but would not elaborate the details on the project. And there is a work-in-progress for a sequel to “Salt,” but they will wait until actress Angelina Jolie is ready to do another film.

    Probably the last thing the world needs to see right now…especially if Bay is in control. If not, it might be worth a shot – just as long as my children aren’t exposed to more dreadful cinema under the guise of “family entertainment”.

    Wasn’t there a rumor about a ‘Driver’ type character that team up with a Decepticon and their bromance replaces the Sam/Bumblebee dynamic? I always liked that idea. It’s fun, it’s new. To have a criminal team up with this alien supercar, maybe they’re both outcasts (him from his mob family, the bot punished by Megatron and left for dead, but he survived.) Then a new chapter in the war begins, and they both have to decide on their loyalties. Possibilites, no?

    how about more TRANSFORMERS and less of the human element in the film. Maybe takes place on cybertron following the story lines of recent TF: Fall of Cybertron game.  Something needs to  change in this next film

    Please Bay, just stop! You have leeched enough cash from a potentially great franchise to just walk away. Maybe in a decade someone with story telling/character development skill will resurrect it! After these movies have hopefully been forgotten about.

    I will see this movie when it comes to video. Eventhough I enjoyed Dark of the moon for what it was, I won’t pay to see transformers 4 in the theathers. We know a Micheal bay Transformers after 3 films. They should’ve gone with a whole new production team, and a new trilogy. I will give the new Spiderman a chance because it’s not Sam Rami’s Spiderman. ( which I enjoyed immensely…except for the 3rd)
    Now…if micheal bay was just the director of the action scenes…fine…but storywise…no.
    Don’t get me wrong, I like Bay films, but what they did to the first trilogy…well…I just believe someone who respects the source material, would’ve given us superior films.
