A TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT Sequel Is In The Works At Paramount (For Some Reason)

Transformers: The Last Knight was considered something of a commercial disappointment following the success of the first three instalments, but it's now been confirmed that a fifth movie is on the way!

Despite the fact that Bumblebee was supposed to be a soft reboot for the Transformers franchise, producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura has now revealed that a sequel to 2017's The Last Knight is in the works. This news is sure to leave fans baffled, especially as it feels like now is the right time to move on from the Michael Bay era of movies. 

"We are already working on two projects and both have scripts under development. One is the latest in the main family series following the events of Transformers: The Last Knight and the other is a sequel to Bumblebee. So, we are thinking of films where Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will be the buddies, but when Optimus and Bumblebee are the movies of the protagonists … how human beings get involved in their drama In the first place, the size is different between human beings and theirs …. It’s a worrying point (laughs)."

That all sounds rather weird, but it will be even stranger to have these movies playing out in both the past and present, especially if Paramount Pictures is going to attempt to link them and create a "shared" universe similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  

What's even more surprising, though, is the fact that a sequel to The Last Knight is even happening. The movie took in only $605 million at the worldwide box office in 2017, making it the lowest grossing instalment to date and a huge disappointment when previous films passed the $1 billion mark. 

No release date has been revealed for this sequel, and it's unclear how involved Bay would be.
