Transformers producer wants second trilogy

It’s no surprise that the producers of Transformers are eager to keep pumping out sequels (especially when the most recent film picked up $399 million worldwide on its opening weekend). The return of director Michael Bay and star Shia LaBeouf is doubtful, and although rumour of Jason Statham taking over the lead  in any further instalments is yet to be confirmed, producer Don Murphy has revealed that three more films are likely.

Writing on his personal forum (and brought to our attention by Slashfilm), Murphy said,

“What happens next? Certainly not a reboot. We haven’t lost the Transformers. They didn’t grow up or become expensive like Toby 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.”

In summation: if there are future films, they won’t be reboots, but rather a second canonical trilogy focusing on the same robots and different humans. Also, Tobey Maguire is very expensive.

Discuss: Would you like to see a second Transformers trilogy?

  1. I do love the transformer movies but I don’t know if I would see them without Shia Lebouf he kind of put them on the map.
