Michael Bay Confirms Jack Reynor Casting & Transformers 4 is Start of New Trilogy

I honestly am not sure how to feel about Transformers 4 at this point.  Sure, Dark of the Moon was better than Revenge of the Fallen, but considering the train wreck the second film turned out to be, I can’t say it was all that hard to beat it.  Overall, despite my love of things blowing up and special effects in movies, my interest in the Transformers franchise has seriously waned.  I’m not unwilling to give Transformers 4 a fair shot, but the fact that they’ve already decided on doing another trilogy has me more “meh”, than excited.  Anyway, here’s what Bay said on his blog:

I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg. Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously, who does that? Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie WHAT RICHARD DID. This kid is the real deal.

Transformers 4 is not a reboot. That word has been floating around on the net.

This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago. The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast. This Transformers will feel very different then the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.

How do you guys feel about a new trilogy?
