Autobot additcts, rejoice! Paramount has officially announced that Transformers 4 will premiere on June 29, 2014 and Michael Bay will be directing.

Shia LaBeouf has said that he was leaving the Transformers franchise, and at that point (Summer 2011), he assumed Michael Bay was joining him in his departure. While it's possibe LeBouf could change his mind and rejoin the successful franchise, it's also just as likely that Bay will cast another leading man. Considering his lack of hesitancy in ditching Megan Fox, an entirely new cast seems very likely.

Weigh in below: Will you still watch the upcoming Transformers movie if it's LeBouf-free? Who do you think would make a worthy replacement?
