Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=83289

Following this morning's report that says a third sequel to 2007's Transformers is in "active discussions", comes word, via Variety that the plan may actually be to shoot a fourth and a fifth film back to back. The same article also states that Shia LaBeouf is unlikely to return and that the franchise may instead place Jason Statham in a leading role, though no official negotiations have begun.
Not that I am a huge fan of the Bayformers movies...but if indeed there are more...Jason Statham in a lead role instead of Shia would be interesting. If Bay doesn't direct then I'd much rather see it re-booted instead of it continuing like the previous Bayformers movies. I'd prefer Michael Bay stay away from Transformers but " Transformers: Dark of the Moon was an immense financial hit earlier this summer, reaching the fourth spot on the all-time worldwide box office list with $1.119 billion earned. " doesn't seem likely.

I personally have enjoyed the Transformers Prime show on The Hub more than these films.

I don't care how they're lined up. Just make sure they're dead after the shots are fired.

Jason Statham is an....unexpected choice.

Bay or no Bay, they're going to keep making Transformers movies as long as they keep raking in the money. I personally dislike it when they film sequels back-to-back, because that generally leads to two movies trying to tell a story that really only needed one movie (as was the case with the Matrix sequels and the first two Pirates sequels).

There is no plot left really Where the hell can they go apart from maybe a prequel set on Cybertron.

Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

they could, if they wanted to spend a stupid amount of money, do a star-spanning adventure with Autobots on other worlds battling Decepticons before they arrive on Earth...

there's still a few MacGuffins left to use, the Golden Disk, the Key to Vector Sigma....

They should just do a Transporter and Transformers crossover movie because that is what is going to look like anyways. Right up Bay's alley.

They should shoot them as far away from Bay, Kurtzman and Orci as possible.

Transformers was ok, an entertaining enough film, Transformers 2 was watchable but pretty crap. Transformers 3 was just garbage however, with no redeeming features and jam packed full of stupid plots and gratuitous lingering shots of the Megan Fox replacement.

Given the choice i would have any future movies reboot the franchise, with a completely different creative team.

Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

Jason Stratham was first brought up as a rumoured replacement for Josh Duramel who pretty much has said that he wouldn't be returning for any more films. Shia is done as well. Michael Bay I think has been quoted as stating that he wouldn't come back for a fourth film but then he's back tracked and "changed' his mind on previous statements he has made as well. It might be implausible but I'd want a "Beast Wars" film.

Unicron. But I guess that was already done with Rise of the Silver Surfer.

4 could end mid-explosion where part 5 will immediately pick up.

Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

I thought I read an interview from a while ago from Orci and Kurtzman who stated that they thought Unicron would be too difficult to bring into the movie universe, I realize they're not the writers of the films any more but I'm pretty sure they were asked about this. It was someone related to the films at any rate.

^ Isn't Unicron supposed to be exactly the same in all of the divergent TF universes?
