- SHIA IS DONE WITH TRANSFORMING ROBOTS
In a new interview, Shia LaBeouf has stated what we all pretty much knew anyway: He's done with Transformers.
MTV's inestimable Kara Warner has the report on Bumblebee's best pal, who has said that once Transformers: Dark of the Moon is released this summer, he's finished with the giant robots in disguise.
"I'm not coming back to do another one," says the actor. "I don't think [director Michael Bay] 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."
Not that it will be easy to see a young up-and-comer hanging with the Autobots.
"You have an onus in it. I'll enjoy it. I'll go [see it] opening night, I'll be there. But there is a disconnect," continues LaBeouf, before joking that, "It's mine, dude. … It's mine."
He's also high on Dark of the Moon, saying it's the best of the three Transformers films.
"It's the best action, in terms of the geography," he says. "In the second one, you get confused as to who's fighting who and where you are, because it's such a big landscape. This one is Black Hawk Down-ish. It's one location, and the geography is simple to understand. … [Bay] did the 3D in a different way than anyone has ever done it before. James Cameron has seen the movie; he said it's the best 3D since Avatar, so there's all that. Also, this is our best story. It's the most solid screenplay we've had since we started."
Transformers release on 1st of July worldwide
