Default Transformers 4 News and Rumours

An interview with Michael Bay by the Huffington Post has confirmed that the director will be back for TF4 and that the reboot, well, isn't.

Also, Peter Cullen will be back.

I thought I was done. Then the ride came out [at Universal Studios Hollywood] and the two-and-a-half-hour lines. And then you're thinking, Oh my God, someone's going to take this over. And you start doing a lot of soul-searching. Like, OK, I'm about to do a little movie, "Pain & Gain" ... and the studio says they want to restart the franchise. And someone could come in here and screw it up, you know? So I'm thinking that if I do this last one, we set it on a new footing, we change a lot of things -- but we keep the history of the three in place. But we broaden it so it can be set up and be carried on -- it would have a better chance for survival, I guess. You know?
So it was just one of those things. It's like, when you look what's going on in the film business with the franchise frenzy right now, why is Cameron doing two more "Avatar" movies? Why is Peter Jackson doing three more "Hobbit" movies that are in the same world as "Lord of the Rings"? When you have a franchise, it's very hard to give it up.
Furthermore this is the last one. Probably.

Well, no, you've got to do different things in life. But it doesn't matter. This is probably the last one.
As for the reboot:

No. We're basically taking from the history of where it was -- or where we left it in Chicago. And we're going to carry it on from there.
Is anyone even slighty surprised? Personally, I was looking forward to someone else giving this a bash.

Here's the interview and credit to TFormers.
