Oh … hurray. Maybe if we’re really lucky it’ll be in 3D, as well.
Via an MTV News interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura comes this soul-destroying report:
“Michael’s going to direct it and it will be in the summer of 2014,” Bonaventura confirmed in an interview with MTV News. “He’s a cool customer, he’s excited and I think the challenge there is that we are really are going to do a reboot and what that’s going to be we don’t even know yet.”
On Jason Statham casting rumors: “No, it’s so silly. We’ve got to get a story first.”
On whether it’s a reboot: “It’s a hybrid. I’m not involved with Spider-Man, but what I perceive Spider-Man to be is a redoing of the whole thing. It’s [Transformers] not. It’s an evolution, there’s still continuity that’s going on and yet there will be a lot of new cast and whether there will be anyone from the old cast we don’t even know yet. It’s going to be a whole new story. The characters who will come along will be Optimus and Bumblebee I’m sure.”
