The fourth installment in the wildly popular “Transformers” franchise will be arriving in theaters in a little more than two years.  Director Michael Bay has announced on his website that the film will make its debut on June 29, 2014.  Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura will also be returning for the next film, although he says fans shouldn’t expect to see the same cast.  Di Bonaventura tells MTV News that the next movie will be a “reboot” of the franchise, noting that none of the original cast has signed on yet.  Di Bonaventura adds that the fourth “Transformers” film will feature “a whole new story.”

The most recent “Transformers” movie, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” was released last summer, and went on to gross one-point-one-billion dollars worldwide.
