Transformers 4 is a 'step away' from past movies
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.
'Transformers 4' is a ''definitive step away'' from the previous trilogy.
Up-and-coming Irish actor Jack Reynor - who will have a starring role in Michael Bay's forthcoming blockbuster - revealed that the next installment in the alien robot franchise will take the movie series in a new direction.
Discussing his initial meetings with the director, he told The Hollywood Reporter: ''All I knew was basically, Michael was going to make 'Transformers 4' and we were going to chat about me being in it. We didn't chat about making a fourth or any of the motives behind it. But personally, I think there's a lot more to be done with it.
''There's a whole new direction to take it in, and a lot more to explore in that universe, and I think we're going to make a definitive step away from the previous movies, and this is going to be a lot of fun and I'm incredibly excited.''
Reynor will join a brand new cast led by 'Ted' star Mark Wahlberg and 'Bates Motel' actress Nicola Peltz as his daughter, but the movie won't be a complete reboot, the film's director insists.
Bay recently said: ''It's a totally different story. It's with Mark Wahlberg and his daughter.
''It's the same world. You have the three movies, but there's a reason why there's a new cast. And it's explained very clearly when you see it, and it's going to feel natural. So it's not like we're starting over or anything like that.''
