Michael Bay says Transformers 4 not reboot, wants to keep it grounded

Michael Bay addressed just exactly how Transformers 4 will be connected to the other three films in an interview with Hero Complex, saying that “reboot” isn’t an entirely accurate description:

“It’s not a reboot, that’s maybe the wrong word. I don’t want to say reboot because then people will think we’re doing a Spider-Man and starting from the beginning. We’re not. We’re taking the story that you’ve seen — the story we’ve told in three movies already — and we’re taking it in a new direction. But we’re leaving those three as the history. It all still counts. I met with the writer before I went off to do Pain and Gain and we talked about a bunch of ideas. We let that simmer for a bit. He’s been thinking about stuff and now we’re getting back together next week to see what we’ve got and to see if it gels.”

Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and took sole credit on Transformers: Dark of the Moon, would be writing Transformers 4 so one assumes that he’s the writer Bay is talking about. When asked if the film’s story could involve a departure from Earth, Bay seemed to be keen on spending more time in space:

“I think so, yeah, a little. That feels like the way to go, doesn’t it? I want to go a little off but I don’t want to go too sci-fi. I still want to keep it grounded. That’s what works in these movies, that’s what makes it accessible.”
