Movie News: Michael Bay confirms he is directing "Transformers 5"
Despite previous claims to the contrary, "Transformers" producer and director has confirmed that he will be directing the next "Transformers" live action film in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. According to the article:
"Between his producing duties and directorial work, Bay usually has a half-dozen projects going at once. Right now, in addition to 13 Hours, he's doing post-production on the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which he's producing and which is due in 2016, and pre-production for the next Transformers, which he's directing for summer 2017. "I'm doing Transformers ... 5, is it?" Bay says, temporarily losing track. He shakes his head. "I've taken on a lot of work."
Interestingly the article has a minor spoiler in it for the next film, ready on but be warned:
"Finally, there's Transformers. They show Bay an underwater rendering of a crash-landed alien spaceship, then a new dump-truck Transformer with a cloak. Neither are up to snuff. "Boy, I've got a lot of work to do," Bay says, shaking his head."
