Upon completion of every Transformers project, Michael Bay claims that he is vacating the director’s seat for future installments of the franchise, but will remain linked as a producer. Then, some months later, the infamous blockbuster filmmaker usually reveals that he will indeed steer the ship for the upcoming entry. It seems as though Transformers 5 is no different.
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone Bay mentions, “I’m doing Transformers… 5, is it? J.J. [Abrams] told me, ‘You’re the only guy that could do this.’ But it’s time to move on. One more.”
Transformers 5 will see Bay reunite with Mark Whalberg, and will follow on from Transformers: Age of Extinction. You can also read Bay’s comments about Teenage Mutant Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows here.
