Transformers 4 and 5 may shoot back-to-back

When did all the movie news started being related?

Media reports claim that Transformers 4 will shoot back-to-back with Transformers 5 . Plus, we have news on what Shia LaBeouf - who probably won't return for a fourth Transformers film - plans to do next. Spooky.

According to Variety , “sources close to the planning process” say two new Transformers films could be in production after Hasbro chief Brian Goldner revealed his company is in “active discussions” with Paramount, Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg.

Well, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon did bank more than $1bn at the global box office.

The article also claims that Jason Statham may be cast in a leading role, although it hasn't actually been offered to the actor yet.

Meanwhile, Shia LaBeouf - apparently free from his Transformers commitments - is set to become a giant.

The actor will play a 20-foot man in what AngeleFine Productions describes as, “A modern day adult dramatic fairy tale. A story of love and friendship between a rebellious young woman and the mysterious young man who lives in the shadows next door.”

The working title for the film is A Giant . We'd have preferred Honey I Blew Up LaBeouf .
