Before Bay was officially signed on for TF4, Paramount was hell bent on more TF films, aiming for another trilogy. So much so, that they were willing to do TF4 and 5 back to back. But now, since Bay has been confirmed for the fourth, all news concerning the desired 5th and 6th have ceased to exist. This concerns me for a number of reasons. Bay only signed on for the 4th, and has recently stated that he wants the next film to be more like the final hour of DoTM. I dont know about you, but thats not how I want a new trilogy to start off. That sounds more like a finale, rather than a new beginning.
My main point is that, I hope both Paramount, Bay, the writer, and whoever else, look into the future of these films and take that into consideration when making the 4th. Either the 4th is the last, or it isnt, and i hope they are dead certain on their decisions. Bay sounds as though he is going to go all out once again, and most likely will not return after that (so he will say). TF4 will obviously be a huge success, and more films will be made, but will they be a continuation as well? Itd make sense that they are going to be sequels, but Hollywood screws around so much and constantly change their minds. Basically, i hope they are treating this as a bigger picture. If Bay has no intentions on returning for a 5th, I hope he doesnt approach the 4th like he did with DoTM... It being the end. I want TF4 to be made with the intentions of the story and characters continuing on, with or without Bay at the helm.
This is just a thought, i dont like the talk of this film being even bigger than DoTM, i think thats what scares me most. Plus i dont like the news of TF's overall silver screen future suddenly fading to the shadows. but then you have to wonder, all this change is obviously being made for more than a single film right?. i think im just getting paranoid, haha!
