Michael Bay Close To Signing Deal For 'Transformers 4'

(NYMag) An insider familiar with the situation cautioned that while Paramount “does not have a closed deal” with Bay, the studio “is not far from closing” on one, either, and that an announcement could come as early as next week. Meanwhile, the details of the next saga are being kept secret, but it's said that it is definitely not a prequel, and that it will delve deeper into the Transformers canon to mine older characters and lore.

"Regular people might not care about bringing out a character like Sentinel Prime," says one of the insiders, referring to the little-known character who played a major part in last summer’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, "But believe me, fans of the series cared." If both deals are made, we are told that Bay is likely to begin shooting his next film 'Pain and Gain' almost immediately and then pivot to a new sequence of Transformers by winter 2012.
