First he was out, now he’s back in. Michael Bay talked to Hero Complex about the opening of Universal Studios’ Transformers: The Ride — 3D, which the director had a hand in creating from a story standpoint. However, we’re less interested in what he had to say about the ride than we are about the Transformers 4 information that was presented offhandedly:
The director, by the way, says that the fourth film will include some redesign of the robots and an entirely new cast. He also said it will be his last and set the franchise up “for the next guy.”
This jibes with what Josh Duhammel said in February about none of the original trilogy actors returning for the fourth installment.
