We suppose the good news is that if you weren’t a fan of Bay’s work on Transformers, you might be interested to learn that Transformers: The Last Knight will be the last Transformers movie that he will be working on. This was confirmed by Bay on his website in which he stated that he would be “bowing out” from the franchise.
“It’s bittersweet for me. With every Transformers film, I’ve said it would be my last. I see the 120 million fans around the world who see these movies, the huge theme park lines to the ride and the amazing Make- A-Wish kids who visit my sets, and it somehow keeps drawing me back. I love doing these movies. This film was especially fun to shoot. But, this time might really be it. So I’m blowing this one out.”
This doesn’t mean that the Transformers movies are done, just that Bay will no longer be involved in them. We’re not sure who will be picking up the mantle moving forward, but it has been confirmed that there will be a standalone Transformers movie based on Bumblebee that is set for 2018, but no details about who will be acting, writing, or directing it.
