After directing four previous “Transformers” movies, Michael Bay has confirmed that he will return to direct “Transformers 5”. In a profile, the director hints that the upcoming movie will be the last “Transformers” movie he will helm.

“I’m doing ‘Transformers … 5’, is it?” Bay says. “J.J. [Abrams] told me, ‘You’re the only guy that could do this.’ But it’s time to move on. One more.” Bay admits that he has enjoyed working on the action movie, but he has to retire and pass the torch to another moviemaker. ” ‘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,” Bay states.

The article also explains some moments when Bay was video calling visual effects supervisors at ILM, who showed him “an underwater rendering of a crash-landed alien spaceship, then a new dump-truck Transformer with a cloak” for the new film.

Besides Bay, Mark Wahlberg will return to reprise Cage Yeager and Steven Spielberg will once again executive produce. Written by Ken Nolan, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the script is based on a story created by the “Transformers” writers’ room led by Akiva Goldsman. Official release date has yet to be announced, but the fifth “Transformers” movie is expected to arrive stateside in 2017.
