With Michael Bay back for the fifth Transformers movie, it’s safe to assume we can expect a lot more explosions.

“Me in the white,” Bay posted on Facebook. “Creating some wicked action in 116 degree weather.”

Taking a close look at the image, we see the first upside down vehicle has a cool machine gun attached to its top. See below.

Transformers 5 Films This Summer In Detroit

The Michigan Film Office announced the news with confirmation that Mark Wahlberg returns as Cade Yeager, and also that Transfomers 5 will film in other parts of the world. See fulll details below.



‘Transformers 5’ lands in Detroit; big-budget film latest high-profile project attracted to Michigan Film office amended agreement with Paramount Pictures saves state $21 million


LANSING, MI – Michael Bay’s “Transformers 5,” the latest in the hit series of films from Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, and among the top box-office grossing franchises of all-time, will be filmed in Detroit this summer. Official confirmation comes as the result of modifying incentives from other approved Paramount Pictures projects into a single amended agreement for “Transformers 5.”

Restructuring the incentive agreements with Paramount saves the state $21 million, and speeds up the production of the next installment of one of next summer’s most-anticipated films.

Directed by Bay, “Transformers 5” will star Mark Wahlberg, reprising his role of Cade Yeager. In addition to Michigan, the movie will film in locations around the world.

“Having one of the highest-profile film franchises created in Michigan is a major economic boost and a testament to the talent of the state’s production community,” said Jenell Leonard, commissioner of the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office.

“The production and economic investment is now happening sooner rather than later, and obviously, the project is a certainty rather than merely a possibility,” she said.

The production anticipates an in-state spend of $80 million and projects making 850 cast and crew hires, 450 of which will be Michigan residents equating to 228 full-time positions. The production also expects to hire 700 extras.

The amended agreement between the film office and Paramount reallocates dedicated funds and meets all criteria for a qualified production in terms of expenditures and personnel hired in Michigan.

While in July the state legislature eliminated the film office incentive program which prohibits the film office from entering into new agreements, agreements with production companies approved before the abolishment of the program must be honored. Because approved Paramount projects had yet to begin production and receive the incentives, state statute allows for funds to be reallocated for qualified productions.

“Michigan has been so welcoming of Michael Bay and the ‘Transformers’ movies over the years and we are thrilled to be returning for this next incredible installment,” said Lee Rosenthal, president of Physical Production at Paramount Pictures.

Paramount had multiple preapproved applications with the Film Office, representing a total of approximately $42 million in eligible incentives. “Transformers 5” takes half the incentives already allocated for Paramount projects. The remaining $21 million will be returned to the state general fund at the end of the fiscal year.

The announcement of “Transformers 5” production comes a month after Viacom’s Comedy Central announced its “Detroiters” series would be filmed in Detroit beginning this summer. The television series did not receive an incentive. Rather, city of Detroit and film office representatives worked together to accommodate crews and budget for the television production.


Michael Bay Directing Transformers 5; Says It’s His Last


Michael Bay has confirmed he is directing Transformers 5 as well as mentioning it will be for the last time.

In the interview in which Bay confirmed Krang for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Bay told Rolling Stone, “I’m doing Transformers … 5, is it?” while joking about the amount of work he has taken on.

Bay later remarked it will be his last time directing Transformers with: “Transformers, I still have a great time. It’s fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see. But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else.” 

Little is known about the fifth Transformers movie, which is to begin filming this year for a 2017 release, but Mark Wahlberg is confirmed to be returning.

Paramount is also building a Transformers shared universe with Parts 6,7, and 8 said to be in development in addition to a Transformers animated Cybertron origin story that makes up the next ten years worth of stories.


Mark Wahlberg Will Be Back For Transformers 5


Mark Wahlberg reveals he will be back for the fifth Transformers installment and says he thinks filming will happen soon.

Wahlberg spoke with MTV promoting his latest movie, The Gambler, where he was asked about T5.

“I’m committed to doing a couple more,” he said. “I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon.”

Wahlberg was featured in Transformers: Age Of Extinction, with the movie making over a billion dollars at the box office.

T4 not only featured the Dinobots, but also left it open for a certain villain to return.

The Gambler has a December 25, 2014 release.


Transformers 5, G.I. Joe 3 & Star Trek 3 Coming 2016


It’s being stated that Paramount will be releasing Transformers 5, G.I. Joe 3 and Star Trek 3 in 2016.

Paramount Pictures International svp, EMEA Edward Ryan, is said to have promised for 2016:

Paranormal Activity 5, a new take on Ben Hur directed by Timur Bekmambetov, the return of Eddie Murphy for Beverly Hills CopTransformers 5GI Joe 3Hansel and Gretel 2 and Star Trek 3.

Back in April, leaked Hasbro images and concept art had Transformers 5 as coming out in the second quarter of 2017; so perhaps it’s been bumped up.

Regarding Star Trek 3, it’s said Robert Orci will direct, as J.J. Abrams is busy with Star Wars, and that Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are expected back.
