Producer Don Murphy tells TFW2005 that despite all the speculation, a fourth “Transformers” film would NOT be a reboot but rather a sequel (or potential new trilogy launcher) featuring the same robots.
“What happens next? Certainly not a reboot. We haven’t lost the Transformers. They didn’t grow up or become expensive like Tobey Maguire. I don’t know what happens next. I’m pretty sure there will be a second trilogy. I am pretty sure it will kick ass. And I am pretty sure some of you will hate it because it wasn’t all bots.”
Paramount Pictures has not announced plans for a follow-up to “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” as yet.
