Michael Bay Set To Direct ‘Transformers 5’; Optimus Prime Rumored To Die In The New Film

Michael Bay is set to return to the “Transformers” franchise and will begin shooting for the new film soon.

Many initial reports said that Bay will not return to direct the sequel to “Transformers: Age of Extinction.” But as was revealed by Screenrant.com, he is ready to helm the next movie once he finishes his current projects. Star of the previous film Mark Wahlberg confirmed that news with a hint that he will return to the franchisee for the sequel too. A member of the team of writers for the films has also given his nod for the confirmation.


Wahlberg has stated that the writers are busy finalizing a story and both he and Bay are busy with their own projects but they will get back together as soon as he gets free.

There’s a reason to be excited for the sequel as the writing team has become stronger than before. Big names like “The Walking Dead’s” Robert Kirkman and “Iron Man’s” Art Marcum and Matt Holloway have joined the team for the new “Transformers” movie along with other writers. Bay is currently working on his film, “Benghazi” and the writers are working hard to finalize a script before Bay completes the film and returns to “Transformers.”

Good news is “13 Hours: The Soldiers of Benghazi” has released a trailer which means it won’t be long before its production ends and Bay returns to direct “Transformers 5.”

As far as the plot for “Transformers 5” is concerned, there haven’t been any direct spoilers as the writers are still working, but according to ecumenicalnews.com, there’s a strong rumor that Autobot’s much loved leader and “Transformer” series’ most famous name, Optimus Prime will be killed off at the hands of Megatron/ Galvatron. New characters Ultra Magnus and Unicron might be introduced.
