Speaking to Slash Film this week, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura stated that they are not working on a sequel to Transformers: The Last Knight. He also mentioned that director Michael Bay will not return to the director’s chair for the franchise.
For the next Transformers are you looking for new directors or hoping you can still make Michael Bay an offer?
I think Bay has made it really clear that he loved what he did and he’s not doing anymore. So I think the answer is we’re writing a script. At that point, once we get script we have a strong belief in, then we’ll begin to debate that. Michael’s made it really clear that he didn’t want to do it. I don’t blame him. He spent a hell of a lot, a decade of his life, shooting them.
Are you developing a script that picks up where The Last Knight left off?
