Michael Bay may end up directing Transformers 5 after all

06.15.2015

Transformers: Age of Extinction Michael Bay Mark Wahlberg

Last year it didn't sound like Michael Bay will be back to direct the fifth installment in the TRANSFORMERS series, but TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION star Mark Wahlberg believes Bay will be behind the camera for the next film. Wahlberg couldn't provide Collider with an update on the status of the project, but he did tell the site that he thinks Bay will return to direct TRANSFORMERS 5.

The fifth film isn't expected to hit theaters until 2017, so Michael Bay still has plenty of time to decide if he wants to direct or not and will at the very least be executive producing, but I'm interested in knowing why he may have changed his mind. Does he want to try to prove the haters wrong, or does he just want to make things go BOOM again? I'm thinking it's more the latter than the former.

I know many of you were excited that the TRANSFORMERS franchise was going to be getting a new director, but who would you rather see helm the fifth movie, especially since it will likely be a filmmaker handpicked by Bay and company?

Michael Bay is currently filming his Benghazi drama 13 HOURS, and Mark Wahlberg can be seen next in TED 2 on June 26, 2015.

Eh why not right? I doubt any other director is willing to even bother, so who better, it's his baby he raised to become a fuck up.

This is a great idea...wait for it.

Paramount has found a way to make a kind of House Arrest version of the Joblo Movie Jail articles. We can't actually throw Micheal Bay in jail so he gets to make another Transformers movie, If Ted 2 sucks balls (highly unlikely, but still) then Marc Wahlberg will be in need of some Cinema crime time and he is forced into a 3-picture deal to make more of these films. See, just like house arrest, it is not prison per se it is simply keeping shitty film makers somewhere where we know where they

Good Job Paramount.

Bay is one of my favorites. The Rock, Armageddon, The Island, Pain and Gain, Bad Boys 1&2... the guy makes entertaining movies with tremendous scores. I never understood the hate he gets.. but i think the hate is really pretty specific to sites like these and movie critics because his movies make money which means the world enjoys his style. As long as Bay keeps steppi g away to make other projects like Pain and Gain and his Benghazi project i have no problem with him back for more kick ass

The Island is tremendously underrated, the first hour is great & then it turns into typical Bayhem, but still cool. The guy can shoot action like no other.

No reason to be shocked...it was only a matter of time. TF5 needs to bomb at the box office.

The real shock would've been if Michael Bay finally decided to call it quits with Transformers, but how can he? It's a million dollar plus job which he gets to phone in. As much as I detest Michael Bay, I want the good old 90s Bay back. You remember that guy right? Directing films like Bad Boys, The Rock, and Armageddon. Films which had great watchable action, films with solid stories and good characters, not every female role was played by a Victoria Secret model, even the movies even had a

These days the guy directs with the restraint of a ten year old. Not interested.

Can't say I'm surprised. Isn't this what happened last time, too? Granted, he hasn't confirmed, but I feel it's only a matter of time now. I'm with The_ConMan, as much as I like Joe Carnahan, Bay needs to finish the Bad Boys trilogy a lot more than he needs to do Transformers 5.

I'm not surprised but worried though. Earlier news (last week, I think) indicated that Transformers 5 would go to Cybertron. But with Bay on board, I'm afraid we're going to have to endure stupid human characters again.

I think the franchise needs to fuck off altogether for a few years and then come back fresh.
