Michael Bay Says Rumored TRANSFORMERS 4 Plot Synopsis Is Bogus

     December 17, 2012

Earlier today, the website Unleash the Fanboy unleashed what they claimed to be an exclusive description of the plot for Transformers 4, and said the villain would be Unicron.  I didn’t bother to read the whole description since I had a feeling that the scoop was bogus, and now Michael Bay has released a statement confirming my suspicion.

Hit the jump for a statement from Bay regarding the current status of the script.  Transformers 4 stars Mark Wahlberg and possibly co-stars Nicola Peltz and Brenton Thwaites.  The film is due out June 27, 2014.

Michael Bay released this statement on his website regarding the “leaked” synopsis:

“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 [screenwriter Ehren 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!”

All we know about the movie at this point is that it takes place four years after Dark of the Moon, it will be set in China, and the film will star Mark Wahlberg as a father.  The script also includes the daughter of Wahlberg’s character and her boyfriend.
