Michael Bay Directing TRANSFORMERS Reboot

Michael Bay is set to return as director of Transformers 4! Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed the 2014 release date and reveals that Bay will return to direct a "reboot" of sorts of the franchise. 

Here is what Bonaventura had to say:

Michael's going to direct it and it will be in the summer of 2014. He's a cool customer, he's excited and I think the challenge there is that we are really are going to do a reboot and what that's going to be we don't even know yet.

He also responded to the rumors about Jason Statham's involvement: 

No, it's so silly. We've got to get a story first.

He went on to say,

It's a hybrid. I'm not involved with Spider-Man, but what I perceive Spider-Man to be is a redoing of the whole thing. It's [Transformers] not. It's an evolution, there's still continuity that's going on and yet there will be a lot of new cast and whether there will be anyone from the old cast we don't even know yet. It's going to be a whole new story. The characters who will come along will be Optimus and Bumblebee I'm sure.
