New Pics From 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction,' Mark Wahlberg Says He's Signed For 3 Films, Michael Bay Open For More

Despite saying last summer that “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” would be his last at-bat, it seems Michael Bay’s having a great time on set and may have changed his mind about walking away from the hugely successful franchise. And he may not be alone in continuing the saga of giant robots and rampant product placement.

Transformers: Age Of Extinction

Despite saying last summer that “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” would be his last at-bat, it seems Michael Bay’s having a great time on set and may have changed his mind about walking away from the hugely successful franchise. And he may not be alone in continuing the saga of giant robots and rampant product placement.

In an interesting roundtable discussion THR held with some notable producers behind awards contenders (watch the whole thing here), Mark Wahlberg talked about the difficulties of signing up actors and renegotiating as a franchise gets successful. While the actor-producer at first explained all the problems getting the “Entourage” movie off the ground—“Everybody’s saying it was all about money. It wasn’t, necessarily”—he also talked about his own experiences as an actor at the mercy of other producers, saying “You know ‘Transformers,’ I definitely had to sign up for three. Does that mean we’ll make three? No, it doesn’t.”

But if the reboot proves successful—and really, why wouldn’t it?—Paramount will no doubt push for a fifth ‘Transformers’ and Bay wouldn’t be too opposed to coming back, coyly telling Empire, “Well, it’s a director’s world… It’s a franchise world at the moment. You know, Peter Jackson is still in Middle-earth...” Check out some new stills and a peek behind-the-scenes, courtesy of Empire, below.
