Will Michael Bay Be Involved With TRANSFORMERS 5 After All?

Will Michael Bay Be Involved With TRANSFORMERS 5 After All?

Actor Glenn Morshower, who has appeared in all three of Michael Bay's Transformers films, reveals that Bay is not only working with executive producer Steven Spielberg on Transformers 4, but potentially a fifth installment as well.

When Michael Bay signed on to direct Transformers 4 for Paramount Pictures earlier this year, he stated that this would be his final installment in the highly successful series. However, he also said the same thing when he helmed Dark Of The Moon last year, leading to some thinking that Bay will be back for a fifth film in the franchise. And if these words from actor Glenn Morshower - who plays 'General Morshower' in the Transformers trilogy - are anything to go by, it looks like Bay isn't done with the Transformers movies yet.

Last weekend at the Con X KC in Kansas City, Missouri, Morshower (who also provides the introduction to Universal Studios' Transformers 3D ride) discussed the continuation of the series, as well as whether or not he'll be back for future installments. "After I did the opening ceremonies for the ride, [executive producer] Steven Spielberg walked up to me and chatted and said 'You know we've got you set to do the fourth one and probably the fifth one on the heels of that," Morshower revealed. "So, I guess in December we are on our way to making 4 and 5."

Very interesting. When Michael Bay signed on to direct, it's been said that Transformers 4 will abandon most (if not all) of the human characters from the first three films. However, if what Morshower is saying is true, we can expect to see him in two more films from Bay and Spielberg. Additionally, there was a rumor this year that Paramount were considering shooting both a fourth and a fifth movie back-to-back. But since that rumor also said that Jason Statham will be taking over the lead role (something that the actor has denied since), it was probably bogus. Still, take the possibility a fifth Transformers movie from Bay with a grain of salt until we receive official confirmation.

Transformers 4 is set to hit theaters June 27th, 2014.

Dammit. Bay lied to us, again.
SuperDude001 - 9/23/2012, 1:59 PM
Oh god no. Bay has made some good films, heck the first Transformers was a blast, but come on why can't this imbecile just leave the frickin franchise already so it can be rebooted and actually be great.

"Will Michael Bay Be Involved With TRANSFORMERS 5 After All?"

I think the real question is,

"Do greedy assholes ever get tired of money?"
logan71 - 9/23/2012, 2:09 PM

A two movie story arc featuring unicron, the dynobots, and more cybertron would be forgivable

lol 2 more tries to get it right? , guess hes pulling a wolverine :D !
CaptainObvious - 9/23/2012, 2:28 PM
If this is true, can somebody tell Bay to stop being selfish and greedy and let somebody else take over? Seriously, I don't want to have to wait years to see a Transformers movie not directed by Bay. It's time for new blood.

"...it's time to set the many adventures to come amongst the stars!"

If they go that route, that means the US military won't be in it. We all know Bay will never let that happen.

I wouldn't trust Bay to direct me to a bathroom at Wal-mart.

I don't want to see the release of 1 more film, let alone 2. God forbid.
angus666 - 9/23/2012, 2:51 PM
Just make 4 first.
DCwanabe - 9/23/2012, 2:55 PM
HA, the island was the only good movie michael bay made.
Ichaos - 9/23/2012, 2:56 PM
Bay needs to stop directing movies!!!! Let him do what he does best and direct special effects sequences.

Enough Transformers. Getting Nimoy to upchuck the needs of the few line was just one of the may jump the shark moments.

The movies suck for the most part but the action is absolutely incredible.

I'm going to get lots of hate for this but the final battle in dark of the moon puts the action sequences in the avengers to shame! Only the action sequences in the incredible hulk come close.

Glen Morshower is a very nice guy. I worked with him on After Earth. For prove check me out on twitter....


Pics of night and jaden for proof.

Great! I want more.....
jessepostal - 9/23/2012, 3:42 PM
he's probably gonna be a producer, he's just setting up 5 to line up with his vision of 4
daftendirekt9 - 9/23/2012, 3:49 PM
as a huge fan/collector of Transformers I say, no thanks :)
but if it helps bring on more cash to help Transformers Prime, a new show, or a new game from High Moon, and improve the toys, then why not, LOL
aquaman52 - 9/23/2012, 3:56 PM
Keep 'em coming.
BlackFlash - 9/23/2012, 4:15 PM
Just give me a New Bad Boys and i'll be fine.

Please no Witwicky family... All of them...
OrganizedChaos - 9/23/2012, 4:44 PM
ruining my favorite franchise....please reboot it and give it the same style as the High Moon Studios Video Games: War for Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron
JMESS - 9/23/2012, 4:44 PM
AmazingFantasy - 9/23/2012, 4:45 PM
War/Fall of Cybertron style anyone?

I vote for what Optimus83 said, as a huge Transformers fan I say we need to get some of them on the big screen, comic style.

Oh [frick]ing Grimlock.
uvsk420 - 9/23/2012, 4:57 PM
Transformers 1 was off the [frick]ing hook badass and then comes Go-Bots revenge of the(who the hell is the) fallen and Go-Bots dark of the moon, yeah i had hope after watching the first on but yeah, and if you don't know what a Go-Bot is then that is the reason you "kids" like those crap ass sequels
DioFoRio - 9/23/2012, 5:09 PM
if the lines at the amusement park are any indication then Mikey would say yes
marvel72 - 9/23/2012, 5:10 PM
can't fault the transformers films for action or cgi effects,its every else in the movies that make them shit.
XavierLehnsherr - 9/23/2012, 5:13 PM
Bayformers movie series will go on longer than Resident Evil's.
Originator2000 - 9/23/2012, 6:59 PM
There is really no way to continue the story after Dark of the Moon's ending.
Pooh - 9/23/2012, 7:18 PM
I'm not going to see another Transformers movie until Michael Bay is replaced.

These movies could be so much better.

Is that the guy from 24?
Natetrix79 - 9/23/2012, 9:44 PM
I like the Transformer movies, & they are nowhere close to that bile Resident Evil!!! I mean I really didn't expect much from Transformers I thought it would be really bad but it was action packed & funny & a treat for the eyes. Did you guys really think talking transforming robots would have amazingly well written dialog & would win some Academy Awards? Could someone tell me how the movies could have been better???........Naybe if Nolan or Wheadon would have directed it.....
