...It's an awesome project called Pain and Gain. It’s been with Michael Bay for some time now. ...The goal will be to shoot it this year. Sure. Because, I know, he has Transformers to make. Obviously. That juggernaut. I can't wait for that. Plus I got Fast Six business.While it’s easy to read too much into his statement, I recommend being cautious. Johnson's statement would be accurate by default simply because Michael Bay will likely retain his executive producer credit regardless if he director Transformers 4 or not. So while Bay's director status remains officially unconfirmed, this strongly indicates that one way or the other, things will move forward on Transformers 4 in 2013. Thanks to Kris J. for the link.
