Director Michael Bay aka the king of explosions was mulling leaving the Transformers movie franchise but he had a change of heart. He just confirmed to Rolling Stone that he will helm the fifth installment. But he also added that Transformers 5 would be his last one that he wants to pass the reins of the alien robots franchise to someone else.
Am glad to hear Michael Bay is staying on board for Transformers 5! Nothing set in stone yet regarding the following sequels, but I guess this time around Michael Bay will indeed abandon the director’s seat once he’s done with the fifth film. He will likely keep an eye on the franchise as producer though.
Transformers 5 will be released in theaters sometime in summer 2017.
