Hasbro is reportedly considering shooting fourth and fifth installments of “Transformers” back-to-back reports Variety.
The company is in active discussions with Paramount, Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg on how to move forward with the double film idea on the table. Scribe Ehren Kruger is said to have an idea that the studio is high on and has begun engaging writers for.
Shia LaBeouf won’t be returning, though Jason Statham’s name has come up again as a potential replacement though no offer has been made.
No word on when production would begin but a lengthy shoot in 2013 would be the earliest possibility. Michael Bay will serve as an executive producer, whether he’ll return as director though is unknown.
