Michel Bay is once again gearing up for giant robot battles that cause an unimaginable amount of property damage. This time around he’s enlisted the help of Mark Wahlberg to kick off a new trilogy of Transformers films.
MTV had chance to speak with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura about the new film and was kind enough to share the video, which you can see below.
The producer speaks to whether or not this is Bay’s last Transformers film:
”I can’t speak for Michael. I hope he would [direct the next two]. It would be great, but it’s certainly something in our design of this. It’s going to be an ongoing story, so the possibility, again, as long as the audience shows up for us, there’s a lot of story still to be told.”
Is this a sequel, or a straight up reboot?
”There’s a lot of new elements. I wouldn’t say we’ve completely changed this world, and yet it’s completely different. There are new characters, new situations. I don’t think we revisit a single location. Michael really has a great way of approaching this thing.”
With Wahlberg’s character in the pole position, where does that leave our intrepid hero Sam Witwicky? Will The Beef at least be making a cameo?
”I don’t believe that would be true. You never know. Things are not set in stone, and if something evolved and that came naturally. That wouldn’t be the intention. The intention is this is new world, with new characters, with Mark Wahlberg leading us. It’s a different movie, but a lot of the things that you love about the other ones are joining the ride.”
