Having said that he hasn't been contacted to reprise his role, the actor playing William Lennox in the first three 'Transformers' movies is adamant that Shia LaBoeuf is not coming back.
Speculations that "Transformers 4" will have a whole new cast might turn out to be true after all. When met at the launch party for Sony PlayStation's new PS Vita portable entertainment system recently, Josh Duhamel shared his belief that none of the original cast will return to do the reboot for the franchise.
The actor playing William Lennox in the first three "Transformers" movies told E! News, "I don't think anybody's doing it." He went on to say that he's sure leading man Shia LaBeouf won't be coming back. He also doesn't think that Tyrese Gibson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or anybody else is doing it.
The husband of Black Eyed Peas member Fergie (Stacy Ferguson) also didn't seem surprised that Paramount Pictures gave the green-light to the reboot. He stated, "Whenever these movies make that much money they're going to make as many as they can. [But] I haven't heard anything about it. They haven't called me."
Questions about the fate of the franchise's original cast surfaced after producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura discussed where they will be going with the story. "There's still continuity that's going on, and yet there'll be a lot of new cast," he told MTV News at the time. "Whether there's anybody from the [original] cast, we don't even know yet. But the truth is, it's gonna be a whole new story."
Director Michael Bay, in the meantime, has been confirmed to do another installment. "Yeah, Michael's gonna direct and it'll be releasing in the summer of 2014," said di Bonaventura. "We're excited and I think the challenge there is we really are gonna do a reboot, and what that's gonna be we don't even know yet."
