Yesterday we reported that director Michael Bay is in "final negotiations" to direct Transformers 4, although that doesn't quite seem to be the case. The filmmaker took to his official message boards early this morning to address the Transformers 4 story. Here's what he had to say below.

"Right now I'm not decided on Transformers 4. Studio's are passing rumors but I'm not sure what I'm doing? I know I'm going to do Pain and Gain early spring but that's it for right now. I'm leaving all my options on the table. I've got several Studio meetings in the next two weeks."

No matter what happens with Transformers 4, Pain and Gain will definitely be the director's next movie, a project he has been developing since 1999. The story is based on a New York Times article about two Florida bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion and kidnapping scheme. We reported earlier this week that Dwayne Johnson is in talks to star in Pain and Gain, with Mark Wahlberg circling another role.
