New installment picks up the story 4 years later, but nothing is as it was
Michael Bay has said before that he would be perfectly able to make “Transformers 4” without the original cast because it would stand apart from the first three movies, and a new synopsis confirms that.Fans must know that Bay is back on the franchise (even though he said he was done with it after “Dark of the Moon”), has replaced all of the original cast (as in, they left) and is now getting ready to have it go into production in Detroit.
Mark Wahlberg will play lead, taking over from Shia LaBeouf.
ComingSoon has the synopsis.
“As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet,” it says.
“However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues,” the synopsis further reads.
“Transformers 4” is meant to be the foundation of yet another trilogy.
