If you've been keeping tabs on Transformers: The Last Knight, you may already know that Michael Bay has once again been touting the idea that he will be done with the franchise after the fifth movie. As this isn't the first time the famous director has expressed this sentiment, the real interesting news is what actually helped Bay to commit to the upcoming movie. Luckily, he recently answered that question, stating it had to do with the terrific writers on the movie coming together to create a couple of good ideas. Michael Bay said:
Based on what Michael Bay said at CinemaCon, he was the person who reached out to Paramount about Transformers: The Last Knight, and his big condition for coming back for another movie involved getting the correct writing staff. He also mentioned on the red carpet for the movie, per Comicbook.com, that his writing staff came up with at least two good story ideas and then he and Steven Spielberg took those stories and then worked to mash them together, calling the end result "fresh."
The final product was written by Ken Nolan, who wrote Black Hawk Down, and Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, who wrote Iron Man. By now, we've seen trailers for Transformers: The Last Knight and we also have a good inkling regarding what the upcoming movie will be about. The movie will pick up with the war between the humans and the Transformers in full force. Optimus Prime is still floating in space, and in his stead the Last Knight will work to bring peace between the two sides. Which should look something like this:
We already know plenty about the upcoming Transformers film, but we'll be able to see the high-octane drama when Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters on June 23, 2017, and is (probably) (maybe) Michael Bay's last movie on the franchise.
