Whatever your opinion of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon movie is, the truth remains that it's a box office bonanza. Sensing the major coins potential for continuing the franchise, producer Don Murphy has a different take on the future of the Autobots and Decepticons, indicating they might start a whole new trilogy with the same robots.

Speaking on the message boards of his personal site, Murphy poised the question, "What happens next?" He continued by saying, "Certainly not a reboot. We haven't lost the Transformers. They didn't grow up or become expensive like Toby Maguire." Shots fired? Confident that there will be a kick-ass second trilogy, Murphy claims that fans "will hate it because it wasn't all bots."

Director Michael Bay and star Shia LaBeouf have stated that Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which has taken in over $400 million worldwide since opening last Wednesday, will be their last movie in the series. With Murphy's proposed question, who the players behind the franchise will be remains a mystery, but can't you just see Shia LaBeouf's Sam Witwicky character matured into a rugged Jason Statham? No? We can't, either.
