Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura Updates on Transformers 4

“I can’t speak for Michael,” di Bonaventura says, “I would hope he would [stick around]. It would be great. There’s certainly something, in our design of this, that’s going to be an ongoing story… As long as the audience shows up for us, there’s a lot of stories still to be told.”

He also spoke about the plans to relaunch the franchise with brand-new characters while maintaining the continuity of the first three films.

“There’s a lot of new elements,” he says. “I wouldn’t say that we completely changed this world and yet it’s completely different. There are new characters. There are new situations. I don’t think we revisit a single location.”

Transformers 4 is set to star Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor and will hit theaters on June 27, 2014.
