Michael Bay Is Officially Directing ‘Transformers 5’ | Film News
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Michael Bay, director of the past 4 Transformers movies, announced that he will be directing the 5th one. The magazine paid a visit to Bay at his Miami home where he was busily engaged in final details for his next movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. He was also in conference with members of ILM discussing special effects for the latest robot movie, which includes a dumper truck in a cloak. Is Michael Bay attempting a crossover with Star Wars?
Despite being adamant that he would leave the franchise after Transformers: Age of Extinction (and the film before that), Bay claimed: “I still have a great time. It’s fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see“. Really? Still?
However, he placed extra emphasis on the fact that this really (really really) would be his final one, stating: “I have to pass the reins to someone else“. Aimed for a 2017 release, the fifth installment in the Transformers franchise is aiming at opening up the universe to make room for spin-offs and even more installments. But if you can’t wait that long, watch Michael Bay blow more stuff up in the trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
