in Dark of the Moon, News

It's no secret that "Dark of the Moon" may be the last live action Transformers production invovling Michael Bay as director, but "Transformers" star Shia LeBeouf is also ready to move on. In a recent interview with MTV he discussed his role in the series and the action that makes it great. When asked if he would return for a fourth installment, LeBeouf stated "I'm not coming back to do another one. I don't think Mike will either. It still is a hot property, I think, especially coming out of the third one. So I imagine they'll reboot it at some point with someone else."

In the interview, the actor discusses how his prior projects compared to something as big as "Transformers". About the sets Jeanes says On Transformers: Dark of the Moon the sets were shockingly realistic for being artificial.
