Michael Bay Confirms He’s Directing Transformers 5; Says It’ll Be His Last… Again

Michael Bay has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he will be directing Transformers 5 while indicating that this will be his last exercise in giant robot wrangling. Though he’s said that before.


During the press circus for his latest movie, the Benghazi action-thriller 13 Hours, Bay told The Hollywood Reporter, “Transformers, I still have a great time… It’s fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see. But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else.”

The next film will be the first in a new direction for the franchise. Although the fourth film, Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) was billed as a reboot, since then a team of writers has been mapping out the next phase of the Transformers’ big screen career, in an attempt to create a greater cinematic universe for Transformers, akin to Marvel’s Shared Universe.

However, the fifth film is expected to see the return of Mark Wahlberg, who debuted as Cade Yeager in Age Of Extinction.
