‘Transformers 4’ Kicks Off New Trilogy!

Producer Don Murphy says Transformers will start a new trilogy with the same robots Despite the massive box office success of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which has taken in over $400 million worldwide since opening last Wednesday, there are still doubts about the future of this franchise. Both director Michael Bay and star Shia LaBeouf have stated that Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be their last movie in the series, which has lead many to speculate that Paramount will simply reboot the whole thing.

Producer Don Murphy had a different take on the future of the Transformers, indicating they will start a new trilogy with the same robots. Here's what he had to say below.

"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 yet, but with robust box office figures still pouring in, you can bet the studio has something up their sleeve for more robots in disguise.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon was released June 29th, 2011.

    In the 80's cartoon story lines the autobots were the working class of cybertron, the decepticons were the military (before they were called autobots and decepticons) Also Optiums Prime was not always Optimus Prime he was first Orion Pax (worker) Megatron destroyed him Alpha Trion took Orion Pax destroyed body and made Optiums Prime. That would be a great story line for Transformers 4.

      @Dabiel Denis if you have followed the Transformers since the 80's like I have mostly the animated first Transformers Movie. You would know there is Decepticons and Autobots scattered through the universe other than Cybertron. If there will be a Transformers 4 a story line will be possible.

            i dont think people would care about the story or script as far as Transformers 4 is concerned.....The franchise became a huge success because of its huge CGI quotients and immense battle....I think any plot with Autobots,humans and ofcourse the antibots whether its decepticons or dinobots can do the trick i guess....

            Let me say a story line.....Humans incorporating with the autobots technologies finally invents spaceships.......and they land on another planet where they find all sorts of machines there.....They were machines too but were inferior to autobots as far as technologies are concerned....Decepticons from another planet lands and it becomes a battle for survival for the natives.....The humans passes on the autobots technologies to the native robots thus giving them the much needed updation for fighting their chances...The rest is up to u....

                    The new Scream had potential to be good, but we all know how that went down the drain lol. And this Franchise needs a Reboot, with more of the plot focused on the Transformers then the humans.

                      @Luke-Wheeler too bad Optimus Prime already died in TF2 but i guess that doesnt count since it was so convoluted you probably already forgot that happened.

                      I havn't seen Titan A.E. but i also loved Iron Giant.

                        It'd be pretty sick if someone like JJ Abrams would take over (i know im dreaming.. leave me alone), but there's no way that happens. If they go for a second trilogy, I would see it working with completely different bots (NO PRIME, NO BEE). Theeeeen in Transformers 6 we get Prime and the rest of the bots back for a final battle.

                            @skywise: I love the Transformers franchise, but I really want to see Unicron. Ever since Transformers 3 was announced I thought he would be in it. But sadly that wasn't the case. Hopefully he'll have his debut in another installment because that would be awesome!

                                Personally, I love Transformers, and I don't feel that Steven Spielberg or Michael Bay could

                                ever make a bad one. Yes the idea of Unicron would be epic, but that would mean that Optimus would die. I know he kind of has to, but he just can't! He's too insane!

                                Transformers 3 rocked my world, and I would say that it is the best film ever made. I mean, it's even better than TITAN A.E. and IRON GIANT, which are really, really great movies.

                                They have to make more Transformer movies, but continue it. DON'T REBOOT, WHATEVER HAPPENS!!! Just keep going, becuase I am a TRANSFORMERS NEEK AND I AM PROUD!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                  I can easily compare them with the fact that the protagonists in each movie had great odds to over come. See what I'm getting at? I'm certainly not saying Transformers was better than any of those movies but I can certainly compare them in that light. Also, in T2 and T3, they were way out numbered.

                                    Okay, what's the point of having sequel after sequel when the Autobots are always coming out on top at the end of every movie?
