Transformers film is 'continuation' of story

Jan 21 2014, 4:18am CST | by

'Transformers: Age of Extinction' is ''a continuation'' of the previous film, according to Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

The producer of the fourth installment in the hit series insists the sci-fi flick which centres on a mechanic played by Mark Wahlberg - who replaced Shia LaBeouf - will refer to the previous movie 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', which ends with a battle in Chicago.

He told TheHollywoodNews.com: ''On a certain level it's a continuation of the previous stories, in the fact that it acknowledges what has transpired before it. It acknowledges in the last movie, the destruction of Chicago, it's actually something that carries through the sort of emotional repercussions of that, not unlike 9/11 has emotional repercussions in the real world. In a fantasy world there are repercussions to what occurred.

''That plays into the movie, moving forwards with a totally different human cast, who doesn't know anything about the other humans, it's not a reboot, but a continuation, yet you're continuing with a new cast and group of characters. It was a big decision to do that.''

Bonaventura insists that star-studded cast which includes Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, T.J. Miller, Sophia Myles and Titus Welliver will add a ''different dynamic'' since many of them are newcomers to the 'Transformers'.

While Peter Cullen will be returning to voice Optimus Prime, who is the leader of Autobots - usually the main protagonists in the films

He added: ''We miss our friends that we did the first three with, and they were great, and they probably could've done more. But the advantage of doing it this way is that it feels almost like a first movie. It's a very different dynamic than I've seen in a movie, I'm very curious.''

Morten Tyldum’s Headhunters follow-up, The Imitation Game, won’t make its big debut until the Toronto International Film Festival in September, but the film is picking up Oscar buzz, so it should come as no surprise that Tyldum has already locked another project, the big screen adaptation of Fredrik T. Olsson’s Chain of Events.  The book doesn’t even arrive until November 4, 2014, but Warner Bros. snatched up the rights last August and is already making mov ...
