Yesterday, Comicbook.com reported on the plot details that some websites were claiming came from a leaked Transformers 4 script. Through his own website, Michael Bay quickly denied that the leaked Transformers 4 script was real.
Bay posted, “Some Internet sites this morning reported that some document recovery guy has found a legitimate 120 page script of Transformers 4. I can absolutely 100 percent say this is completely false. The only two people in the world that have our unfinished script are Kruger and myself. Also we are only up to page 70 in our T4 script. Maybe this guy has a cartoon or something else – but definitely not our movie!”
Now, Bay has posted a surprising update to his original post. Bay added, “P.S. I bet it is something from Hasbro. This time they are not doing a comic book of the movie because we want to keep our story under wraps. It must be their version of a comic themed Transformers story they are creating.”
It’s strange that Michael Bay would add this update and not just stick with it having nothing to do with his movie. We had joked that maybe Michael Bay might decide to use the script anyway just like he cast Mark Wahlberg when the Internet gave him that idea. Maybe, there is something to the script after all, and Bay is leaving the door open that the script might exist as a Hasbro property in case he decides to use elements of it.
