Michael Bay Confirms Transformers 4 Release Date

Following up on a story we posted earlier today about Transformers 4, director Michael Bay added the following confirmation on his official site:

There has been a lot of speculation about what I’m going to do next and when or if I will do another Transformers. So let me set the record straight.

I have just concluded a deal with Paramount to do two movies, but it won’t be two Transformers.

I will first do ‘Pain & Gain’ with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Then I will do the next Transformers for release on June 27, 2014.

To reiterate, producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura told us earlier that “we’re going to try to do a hybrid there where there will be some characters that come forward–we think, we’re still in the process of figuring it out–and some characters that don’t, but it will definitely be a different story.”
