Hollywood's Paramount Pictures says director Michael Bay is to helm a fourth Transformers movie to be released in 2014.
The flick is part of Bay's new two-picture deal with the studio.
Bay also is to commence this spring the filming of "Pain and Gain," which is based on a true story and follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida. Starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who both appeared in "The Other Guys," the movie does not have a release date yet.
"Michael has been working on 'Pain and Gain' for a number of years but has patiently waited for the perfect casting to trigger a start," Adam Goodman, president of Paramount's Film Group, said in a statement Monday. "Clearly his patience has paid off as we couldn't be more excited about this combo. His passion for this project is just awesome."
