This morning I had a chance to speak with one of MovieWeb's biggest fans, who happens to be the wonderful actor Tyrese Gibson, about the Blu-ray and DVD release of Fast Five, which hits shelves October 4. That movie was the first of two blockbusters he starred in this year, with Transformers: Dark of the Moon being the second.
It has been widely reported that director Michael Bay and star Shia LaBeouf won't be back for Transfomers 4, but Tyrese Gibson hopes that is not the case, even if it means we have to wait a bit longer for the sequel. Here's what he had to say about Transfomers 4 below.
"My humble prediction would be that... we're at $1.1 billion. This is the biggest year of my life. I'm on the other side of $1.7 billion in box office receipts, between both films. I think, with the success of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, both Michael Bay and Shia probably want a break from the franchise, but there's no way, I believe, that, at some point, they're not going come back to do Transfomers 4. Maybe they need a few years to get a few other creative things out of their system, which is understandable, but for people to love this franchise around the world like they do, it's damn-near crazy to not give the fans what they love and enjoy again. So maybe two years, maybe three years will go by, you never know, but I believe, and hope, that we are able to do another Transformers. I'm a real Transformers fan, outside of the fact that I'm in the movie, but I just hope we're able to do it again one day. It's the first film in Paramount's 99-year history that has ever grossed $1 billion. I hope we're able to figure this out."
