Fifth ‘Transformers’ Movie Gets Title

Michael Bay and Paramount have announced that “Transformers: The Last Knight” is the title of their fifth “Transformers” movie.

Bay posted the title on his Instagram account Monday. The movie opens on June 23, 2017, with shooting starting next week in Cuba with part of the film to be shot in Detroit.

Mark Wahlberg is set to return in the lead role. Paramount announced in February the release dates for the fifth, sixth and seventh films in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Director Bay said in January that he would return to direct the fifth installment in Paramount’s “Transformers” franchise.

Bay has directed the four movies in the franchise, which have grossed a combined $3.7 billion worldwide and are based on Hasbro’s toy line. Shia LaBeouf starred in the first three films.

The first “Transformers” opened on July 3, 2007, and the next three films launched in late June. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” grossed $245 million domestically and $858 million internationally in 2014.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce “Transformers: The Last Knight” with Hasbro.
