Is Michael Bay Directing Transformers 5?

It was revealed on Thursday that Michael Bay, the director and producer of the Transformers franchise, has extended his deal with Paramount Pictures for an additional three years. The studio has been home to Bay’s production company, Platinum Dunes, for a long time and the new deal will be taking effect immediately. This leaves many to wonder, is Michael Bay directing Transformers 5?

Bay has directed all four films in the franchise and it has served the studio very well. As of now, the films have made nearly $4 billion worldwide and Transformers: Age of Extinction is as of now the highest grossing film of 2014 with $983 million at the global box office according to Box Office Mojo.

With numbers like that, the studio will surely be extending an open invitation to Bay to come back and direct the next installment should he decide that’s something he wants to do. However, at the moment, Bay seems to be on the fence about it.

In a recent interview with Collider, Bay shared that he is pretty unsure as to whether or not he would return to the directors chair for the next installment, which is due out in 2016.

“I don’t know what to tell you, how long can you do Transoformers, you know?” Bay said.

However, even though Bay doesn’t seem to know what his level of involvement will be with Transformers 5, he did seem to have a good idea as to where the plot would be headed.

“The Villain was Lockdown (In Age of Extinction). He’s neither Autobot nor Decepticon. He’s a bounty hunter. He works for The Creators. I’m not gonna tell you who they are. We don’t know. That’s where the next one goes,” Bay said.

Even in the face of near universal critical hatred (Age of Extinction currently holds a 17% rating on Rotten Tomatoes), the latest Transformers is likely to go on to become the highest grossing of the four films. Transformers: Dark of the Moon raked in $1,123,ooo,ooo at the global box office in 2011.

Bay was able to do the more modestly budgeted Pain and Gain between the last two Transformers films. Though with a 2016 release date already set, Bay wouldn’t have time to complete another project before getting back to work with the Optimus Prime and the gang.

According to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura via an interview with Screen Rant, Mark Wahlberg is interested in completing a trilogy, which is good news for the studio since that brings a big amount of star power to the future of the franchise. Bay will certainly stay on to produce, but keeping him in the directors chair would seem to complete the winning formula.
