Rolling Stone has a long profile on Michael Bay to promote his Benghazi movie 13 Hours, and holy sh*t, you guys. If you like reading about Michael Bay doing and saying Michael Bay things (and I do), this profile’s for you. Let’s get the Transformers 5 news out of the way quickly then move on to the (figurative and literal) money quotes.
Bay confirmed what Mark Wahlberg revealed: “I’m doing Transformers… 5, is it?”
Even Michael Bay isn’t keeping track of how many of these there are.
He’s planning Transformers… 5, is it? for the summer of 2017, and he showed interviewer Josh Eells a rendering of a new dump-truck Transformer that has a cloak. He also said this is his last Transformers movie (but he’s said that before). Perhaps the last film grossing more than $1.1 billion (most of it from overseas) convinced him to make another one.
