The rumors are true: There are a lot more Transformers movies on their way to inflict pain upon us.
Recent rumors had pointed to not only a Transformers 5, but that multiple films were in the planning stages. Now, thanks to Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner, that has been confirmed.
Goldner recently released a statement that should send a shiver down your spine.
Our plan with the studio and filmmakers you may have heard some writers being hired and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers. We think there are any number of stories to be told from the brand that has been around for 30 years with amazing canon and mythology. We would expect the sequel to the Transformers movie [TF4] to happen in 2017.
Michael Bay has not yet been confirmed to be returning to direct any of these movies, but we could always hope he’s done and moving on. Sadly, Mark Wahlberg will indeed be returning.
After Transformers: Age of Extinction I’m not sure I can even watch these for a laugh. Yes, they are that bad.
