London: ‘Transformers’ star Tyrese Gibson is pinning his hopes on legendary director Steven Spielberg taking over the reins of the ‘robots series’ if Michael Bay steps down.
Having starred in all the three movies, Gibson is expecting that Spielberg, who has acted as a producer, will save the Transformers franchise and come up with the fourth installment.
“(If) Michael Bay decides to not come back for Transformers 4, there is always Steven Spielberg. I am not saying that Steven Spielberg is for a fact going to direct Transformers 4. But it is a beautiful safety net to know that one of the biggest, most respected directors in the world happens to be an executive producer on Transformers. He is someone who knows this world. And he could easily step in and direct Transformers 4 if he decided to,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling Movieweb.
Rumours are doing the rounds that the series leading man Shia LaBeouf has confirmed that he won`t return for a fourth film after releasing ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’.
