'Transformers 4' to Have All-New Cast

Director Michael Bay and producer Steven Spielberg are indeed returning for Transformers 4, but get ready to hear the term "reboot" kicked around a lot, as none of the former franchise cast members are returning, which opens the series up for reinvention.

At this moment in time, it's still being called Transformers 4, but that will likely change before it hits the big screen on June 29th of 2014. Josh Duhamel, who co-starred in the first three films confirmed earlier today that he will not be returning. And his belief is that neither will Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson, nor John Turturro.

"I don't think anybody's doing it. I know Shia LaBeouf's not doing it. I don't think Tyrese Gibson or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or anybody else is doing it. Whenever these movies make that much money they're going to make as many as they can. [But] I haven't heard anything about it. They haven't called me."


While none of the humans seem game in reprising their former characters, one thing is for certain: Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee have definitely been confirmed for their return in Transformers 4.

Transformers: Age of Extinction comes to theaters June 27th, 2014 and stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Bingbing Li, T.J. Miller. The film is directed by Michael Bay.

    Either get Michael Bay a group of actual writers who know movies and Transformers, or do the right thing and just get rid of Michael Bay and make an actually Transformers movie! Who ever the director is should be forced to take notes from "Transformers The Movie" from 1986. Get a good idea what Transformers actually is and what to do to make things go right! Oh yeah, it should be a reboot because even though I was at opening night for each one of the three films, they need to not continue that story. So please stop being a bunch of idiots wanting some ass to fap to because if that is all you want go grab some tissues and watch a porno.

    the 4th movie should have Rihanna in it she just played in the hasbro movie battlship... She could posibly be perfect for the 4th movie and Megatron should come back and get his revenge on Optimus Prime... The movie needs to be set in the future with Unicron and the Dino transformers and more that where not in the first three movies and Please do not make it a rebood the would suck so bad i would never watch them... Please cary on with what already has happend show more Transformers action with a lil bit of human action and just have it in the future... I think Rihanna would be a good Idea better than Rosie buy a long shot and yea better than Megan Fox for those movies but maby bring megan Fox back but Rihanna would be the best Idea... But Megatron need his revenge for that bull crap cheap shot a Prime out of a transformers gave him... Megatron could have just sat back and let sentinal kell him but he dident he saved Primes life desroyed sentinal and asked for a truce then got cheap shoted... They dont need to just leave that there Megatron need to come for what he diserves Revenge and he should get that inn the 4th movie atleast... I think the movie would be good if they did what of all I said... :)

    I hate the word Reboot. I know this will never happen. But if they do reboot the films, then reboot the Director! All my friends can't stand Mr Bay's ways of filming.

    So we'll have to wait another 6 or 7 years for another reboot WITHOUT Michael Bay. Pathetic.

    @newtron You stole the words out of my mouth.

    Btw, Tyrese not returning? He'd be in this for 10 bucks if they asked him. I think the only person in this saga dignified enough to not return is Shia. I applaud him.

    How about the robots return to Cybertron, they fight more. Then the beast wars, then re-return to Cybertron. Just leave the humans out of it. Or just use the gild line of what has taken place and make new films.

    No one is coming back ? Guess what, Michael Bay is back, if they want a total fresh idea or reboot for Transformer 4, they better remove Michael Bay ! Don't you guys feel tired of his name attached to Transformers...

  24. the Narrator

    An origin wouldn't be the way I'd go. I say set it in the future, where Autobots and humans have been together for a while, and Cybertron is being rebuilt with human's help. Bring in Unicron, mixing up trouble for the new world, etc. I know it butchers the source material, but there's no going back from that they've done already. Might as well make it interesting...

    Prequel trilogy!!
    First movie: How the war on cybertron started
    Second movie: Hostile takeover by the Decepticons and autobots go into hiding.
    Third movie: Autobots come out of hiding and take a stand and the war on cybertron ends because the planet is partially destroyed and thats when the first movie starts.
    Mindblowing peoples minds!!
