It's Official: Shia LaBeouf Not Returning for Fourth 'Transformers' Film
Will you miss Sam Witwicky?
When THR asked Goodman, "Is making 'Transformers 4' without Shia LaBeouf risky? Is he out?", the executive responded, "The story is going in a different direction now. Ehren Kruger [who wrote the past two 'Transformers' movies] is writing it for us, and we're starting to engage, but I can't say anything more. "
Back in February, when the news hit that those transforming space cars would be back, along with director Bay, the filmmaker released his own statement about the film on his website. In that post, Bay said, "Steven Spielberg and I are working on a whole new reimagining of Transformers, the fourth installment. We have been working on the idea for a few months. I'm excited about where it's headed." While details are slim, given that Bay coined the film "a reimagining" so early in the process, it's no surprise that LaBeouf won't be back.
As The Playlist points out, LaBeouf has already said essentially the same thing, as he told MTV News last year: "I just don't think right now there's anywhere to take Sam. And it's not that I don't enjoy working with Michael. I love working with Michael. I would do any movie Michael wants to do. I just don't think there's anywhere to take it with Sam."
The fourth "Transformers" film will be released on June 29, 2014. Who would you like to see star in it?
Yes, I am going to say it.
I didn't see the last one because Megan Fox wasn't in it and now you can bet I won't be seeing the next one without Shia. It's not the same when movies change characters in sequels or change love interests. It looses it's appeal to me. That's just my opinion.
I would like to see Lady Gaga get her head ripped off by Galvatron.
I love Transformers! Me and my son are huge fans and everytime he sees a yellow car he yells "There's bumble bee!!". Loved 1 and 2-not so crazy about the 3rd one because Megan Fox was not in it but to make a 4th one without Sam? I probably wouldn't watch it.Shia Labouf will always be "Sam" -no one else. I will miss not having more Transformers movies made that star Shia Labouf and Megan fox.
How about Megan Fox, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansen, and the redhead from GI Joe all together. They could be dressed in camo and white tank tops, and there could be an explosion in a jello factory...
That would be an ok movie to watch.
I think they should expand on other characters to make the plot and story line more interesting like Galvatron and more of the epic transformers that we have come to know that would put the movie series over the top and keep the story line evolving to a deeper hold on its audience
I like all 3 of the Transformer movies alot! I actually own them. Watch them when I can't find anything else to watch. I will miss Shia on there, I will probably watch it, if not good, it won't be one I purchase. However, I love love love Bubble Bee and Optimus. Take them out and I'm done!
