Earlier today, Comicbook.com reported on plot points from Transformers 4 that some websites were claiming came from a leaked script. We noted that reading it through that it sounded to good to be true, so we doubted that it was real. Now, Michael Bay has confirmed via his official website that the script is not real.
Michael 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!"
Of course, earlier this year, Michael Bay denied that he was talking to Mark Wahlberg about playing a role in Transformers 4. Then, when Michael Bay later confirmed that Mark Wahlberg had been cast in Transformers 4, he indicated that it was because the Internet gave him the idea. It's always possible that there isn't a leaked script for Transformers 4, but Michael Bay likes the ideas in the fake script and decides to use them.
