As part of his recently-announced two-picture deal with Paramount, Michael Bay has been officially confirmed as director for the much-speculated upon Transformers 4, with a release date of June 29th, 2014!
However, apparently, this news, was only made public after one of the producers of the franchise, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, spilled the beans in an interview (above), and the director "went crazy" once he found out!

We guess Michael Bay doesn't just need the Transformers moniker to helm a big-budget, explosion-fest!
As part of his new, two-picture deal with Paramount, the director has signed on to make Pain and Gain, a $25 million action flick starring Mark Wahlberg and The Rock as bodybuilders who get caught up in a kidnapping, extortion, and murder plot!
According to Adam Goodman, President of Paramount’s Film Group:
