The folks over at Paramount have released the official banner for Michael Bay’s fifth outing of the ‘Transformers’ franchise, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT.
Mark Wahlberg is back, reprising his role of Cade Yeager from ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ with Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson from the first three films, returning as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox and Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Robert Epps, respectively. First timers to the robots-in-disguise franchise include Isabela Moner (‘100 Things to Do Before High School’), comedian Jerrod Carmichael (‘Bad Neighbours 2’), Anthony Hopkins (‘Thor’), and Santiago Cabrera (‘Che’),
The film is currently in production with Bay directing from a script by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Ken Nolan. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto are producing.
TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, which will supposedly be Bay’s last time in directing the franchise, is scheduled to arrive in June 2017. The plan is for the film to kick off the Transformers Cinematic Universe, with a Bumblebee spin-off coming June, 2018. ‘Transformers 6’ is pencilled in for a June 2019 release.
