Michael Bay has something to say about leaked Transformers 4 script

Well, that didn't take long. Just a few hours after an alleged script treatment for Michael Bay's Transformers 4 showed up online, the director has taken to the web to respond to the plot points now making the rounds.

According to Bay, the script making the rounds today is a total fake—so it seems we likely won't be seeing Primus, Vector Prime, Circuit Breaker or the Dinobots once the Autobots make their triumphant return.

Here is his statement, via his official site:

"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 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!"
The team at Unleash the Fanboy were the first to publish the alleged script, claiming they'd obtained a 120-page script full of absolute insanity. Apparently not even Bay is crazy enough to make a film this cram-packed with so much old Transformers lore.

Oh, well ... let's get back to speculating.

Are you glad to hear this script is a fake, or do you wish they'd actually make a movie including all these characters?
