Shia LaBeouf: Transformers 4 is 'really cool'
The third and final film in the live action series directed by Michael Bay, "Dark of the Moon" is the sequel to 2009's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, Kevin Dunn and Tyrese Gibson all return to their roles as the Autobots race to find a Cybertronian spacecraft that's landed on the Moon before the the Decepticons get to it. The secrets hidden here could turn the tide in the Transformers' final battle. Meanwhile new cast additions include Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Patrick Dempsey and John Malkovich.
Shia LaBeouf thinks 'Transformers 4' will be ''really cool''.
The 26-year-old actor - who starred as Sam Witwicky in the first three instalments of the franchise - won't be reprising his role in new sequel, but thinks newcomer Jack Reynor and actor Mark Wahlberg will have a ''lot of fun'' filming Michael Bay's new flick.
He told Access Hollywood: ''There's a lot of fun to be had there in terms of the action and what not. I'm sure they're going to make a really cool movie.''
Earlier this year Michael denied rumours that 'Transformers 4' was a reboot, stating that the storyline will pick up from where it left off in 2011's 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon'.
He explained: '' 'Transformers 4' is not a reboot. That word has been floating around on the net. This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago.
''The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast. This 'Transformers' will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.''
In the meantime, 20-year-old Jack is preparing for his breakthrough role by undertaking ''intense'' training to bulk up his physique.
He explained: ''I'm training very intensely at the moment. I'm going to keep that up until we shoot. I'm going to do some different courses, some different things I need to pick up for the film.
''My character seems to be a race car driver so I'm going to be doing a couple of driving courses and getting out on the track.''
'Transformers 4' is rumoured to begin filming in May for a tentative June 2014 release.
