Michael Bay to return for Transformers 5, but says it will be his final one
Michael Bay has confirmed he will be returning to direct the fifth instalment of Transformers, but has also confirmed it will be his final movie in the series.
Bay has been behind the camera on each of the earlier Transformers instalments, beginning with the 2007 original movie and then the sequels Revenge Of The Moon, Dark Of The Moon and Age Of Extinction (which you can purchase on DVD on the right-hand side of the page).
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Bay said: "I'm doing Transformers ... 5, is it?" before adding: "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. It's time to move on. One more."
Bay's new movie 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi will be released into UK cinemas on January 15th.
The movie stars James Badge Dale, John Krasinski and Max Martini and has a screenplay from Chuck Hogan, who is best known as the author of The Town and The Strain, his vampire trilogy with Guillermo Del Toro. Bay directs and produces
