“Transformers: The Last Knight,” the fifth installment in the franchise, just followed the footsteps of “Fast and Furious 8”. Michael Bay’s upcoming movie is the second biggest production happening in Cuba. In fact, Bay himself shared some of the exclusive behind the scene photographs of their principal photography in Havana, Cuba via his Instagram account.

But unlike “Fast 8”, Cuba will not be a huge part of the movie. As of this stage, there are no actors involved yet and director Bay was just accompanied by a second unit film crew. Check out one of the photos:

After filming in Cuba, Michael bay’s team will head to London to shoot most of the scenes. That is another first for the entire Transformers franchise, Hall of Fame Magazine notes. They are slated to start filming this summer, most likely in June. Rumor has it that “Transformers 5” will also shoot a few scenes in Iceland. If that happens then it will be another similarity to the Fast 8 movie which also filmed its biggest explosion in the said country.

Aside from London, Transformers 5 will also film in Detroit. As per Screen Rant, filming in Detroit is a bit surprising following Michigan’s legislative actions that end incentives for filming in the state. In fact, the ending of “Age of Extinction” was shoot in Detroit. The casting calls are expected to begin on June 16 and will be done in London, Los Angeles, and Michigan.

“Transformers: The Last Knight,” is slated for release on June 23, 2017. It will be followed by the Bumblebee movie on June 8, 2018 before the sixth installment arrives on June 2019. Matt Holloway pens the screenplay of the movie while award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman will serve as one of the producers.
