Shia LaBeouf Says He Won’t Return for Transformers 4

Because owning a transforming auto-bot can get tiresome after a while… Shia LaBeouf is saying that the actor won’t be returning to the “Transformers” franchise for part 4 and neither will Bay. Hasn’t this kind of been known for a while now?

Shia spoke to MTV and said the following:

“I’m not coming back to do another one.”

And actually it sounds like if Paramount wants more (and come on, these things are a cash cow, they will), the whole thing may have to move on to a completely new bunch of filmmakers. Even Michael Bay may not be up for Transformers 4.

LaBeouf confirms, “I don’t think Mike will either. It still is a hot property, I think, especially coming out of the third one. So I imagine they’ll reboot it at some point with someone else.”

Reboot? It’s likely. Or they could just continue the franchise with another actor since the “Transformers” movie makes a buttload of money for everyone involved anyway.

    I doubt they’ll just reboot the franchise. I think either continuing it with a new character would work, but he’d have to be very different from Sam Witwicky. Or they could do a rpequel that shows the early days of the war on Cybertron and we’d finally get a Bumblebee that could talk. I actually think that’d be the better way to go.

    Maybe they’ll reboot it and it wont be utter shit. I hate these movies, they are everything that is wrong with Hollywood right now.

      Um that isn’t exactly fair. They’re one of the few franchises that is true to itself and doesn’t have deluion of being something its not. They’re popcorn movies. Get your nakc sit down, watch some crazy action go “OOOHHHH, AHHHH, and OH SH!T!!” and thats it. Nothing more, nothing less.

        transformers really isnt true to what it is atall the original movie had depth and story even tho it was a cartoon, the animated series had alot of political story arcs involved with the transformers even being on earth and megatrons plans and schemes were much more well devised and clever rather then “ooooo big powerful artifact i must have it” and the comic book series is even more so the films Could have been made much better in all honesty not that i like then anyless cus i fukkin LOVE them so so but i would like the 3rd film to leave off in a place where anyone could pick up and make a movie rather then having to follow on from the 3rd to give the franchise a bit of variance you know sorta like “ok we know why there there we know who the evil guy is now stop trying to twist things and make a dam action movie)

          Uh huh but that isn’t what I was saying. What I was saying is that he’s being true to himself and his work by not trying to pass it off as anything more than a popcorn movie. Now getting into the animated movie, it had depth and character and a great universe that had whole seasons to build. That movie is awesome but out of all the new characters in it the one most remembered (Galvatron) is just Megatron with an upgrade, and unicron. The movie itself wasn’t all that deep if you take out Prime’s death. My point is Bay had 2hrs to tell a story and people WANT giant explosions with their giant robot. Bay never set out to make thought provoking movies and never claimed they were anything but fun films. That was my point. Whether you like them or not is your opinion.

          Sent on the go.

      Bay’s Transformers films are great for what they are. The CG, practical effects, stunts, ect. are all top notch and come together to create a great, visceral, action movie experience. If you’re waiting for someone to make a critical darling Transformers movie I think you’ll be waiting a long time.

      • Guest

        Big explosions and special effects do not a good movie make. Especially considering Bay has no idea how to shoot them and puts far too much emphasis on the shaky cam.

        I’m not asking for a “critical darling” or expecting perfection, but an action movie doesn’t need to be retarded for it to be entertaining. Hell, just giving it more than two lines of story would be a start.

        The animated movie was infinitely more enjoyable and had a fraction of the budget of these movies.

    I’d be happier if he never returned… ever.

    james cameron should reboot it! with better stories and better looking robots, almost every robot look the same ,just optimus looks like in the comic

    They should just do a completely cg animated film in the same vain as the classic 80s cartoon. That first animated Transformers film was sooo good (glam rock and all!).

      just a quick question being exactly how many ANIMES have ever been made into live action films (action genres not horror naturaly) not many as anime films probably make more money in japan then live films, and a western company aquiring the right to make anything anime from the original companys is highly unlikly,

      and personaly gundam mechs arnt cooler then transformers there cartoony and unrealistic and and have no sense of practical engineering (aka how the fuck did we build then) atleast transformers being built by aliens has people atleast accepting that in scifi, anime films are turning to very crisp cgi not live action (look at appleseed ex machina “sooooo pritty”)
