Sad news Transformers fans. Shia LaBeouf is confirming that he is finished making Transformers films. Oh wait, sorry about that … Good news, Transformers fans! Shia LaBeouf is confirming that he is finished making Transformers films! In an new interview out this week to promote the upcoming release of the third installment of the Transformers film franchise, Dark of the Moon, Shia has made it clear that he has made his last Transformers film. While he doesn’t rule out the chance of a reboot of the franchise sometime in the future, he seems pretty adamant that his Transformers days are dunzo.
Shia LaBeouf has confirmed that he has no plans to return to the Transformers franchise. LaBeouf is currently promoting his third and final appearance as Sam Witwicky in Michael Bay’s supposed last entry in the popular franchise, Transformers: Dark of the Moon. “For sure,” LaBeouf told MTV News, when asked if this was really his last Transformers film. “I’m not coming back to do another one,” he explained. “I don’t think Mike [Bay] will either.” Despite his decision to leave the franchise, LaBeouf said that the success of the film series means Paramount Pictures are likely to continue it in some form. “It is still a hot property I think, especially coming out of the third one,” the actor continued. “So I imagine they’ll reboot it at some point with someone else.”
In my personal opinion, this is great news … but not because Shia plans to walk away … because I think it’s best to put the Transformers film franchise away for a while. But, if the new Transformers film makes gads of money at the box office, you can bet your sweet patootie that the movie studio WILL make a fourth film — and they will get Shia back on board. He says no know but we’ll see. Still, even if Shia really is finished with the Transformers film franchise, he still has future Indiana Jones films to keep him busy. LaBeouf has a long movie career ahead of him … with or without Transformers in his future. So … I gotta ask … would YOU be interested in watching a Transformers film without Shia LaBeouf in it?
