“Transformers 4” loses Shia LaBeouf but gains a writer

Shia LaBeouf in "Transformers"

Posted by on

There are three things we can be certain of for “Transformers 4”: Michael Bay is directing it, the series is departing from its first three installments, and Shia LaBeouf is definitely not going to be a part of the fourth film.

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with DreamWorks president of production Adam Goodman, who provided an update on the latest “Transformers” flick and confirmed LaBeouf’s departure. It turns out the film at least has a writer, but wouldn’t give away any details as to how the plot will deviate from the previous episode of the “Transformers” saga.

“The story is going in a different direction now,” he said. “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.”

However, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura already did say some more about the film. Back in February, he hinted that “we really are going to do a reboot,” but they aren’t quite sure how that’s going to work.

“What’s that’s going to be we don’t even know yet,” he said. “We gotta get a story first. You can’t pick characters until you have a story.”

When Josh Duhamel was interviewed earlier this year, he seemed to think that none of the original cast members would be coming back for a fourth “Transformers” installment. Goodman’s comments definitely seem to back up that sentiment.

“I don’t think anybody’s doing it. I know Shia’s not doing it. I don’t think Tyrese or Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] or anybody else is doing it,” he said. “Whenever these movies make that much money they’re going to make as many as they can. [But] I haven’t heard anything about it.”

“Transformers 4” is due out June 27, 2014.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
