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?

Shouldn't really matter since the only thing this movie actually had correct was the changing of a robot to something else. Maybe Michael Bay can get out of bed with GM and make the movie accurate for once. Did he even see the original cartoon. Besides the fact the Optimus was a cab-over and Megatron was a gun, where the hell was Spike? I don't ever recall any women being involved.
If you're going to re-make something, get it right. Might as well call it Go-Bots!!!
