No Sequel To TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT Planned As Producer Backtracks

Though Travis Knight's Bumblebee didn't reach the lofty box office heights of Michael Bay's past Transformers films, fans and critics agreed that it was the best live-action Transformers movie to date.

A Japanese media outlet quoted Transformers producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura last month as stating that scripts for sequels to Bumblebee and Transformers: The Last Knight were in the works at Paramount, refuting a previous report that Hasbro had officially declared Bumblebee a reboot.

Previously, the film had been marketed as a prequel but several elements severely contradicted the events that unfolded across Michael Bay's 5 Transformer movies.

Recently, /Film caught up with Bonaventura to set the record straight. The producer stated that the focus right now is on the script for a Bumblebee sequel and that there's been no decision on who will direct the next installment. However, his most notable comment was the simple "No" he provided when asked if the script in development would be a sequel to The Last Knight. 

Director Travis Knight previously indicated that he would like to return to his award-winning stop motion animation studio Laika, though he did not rule out coming back for a sequel.

Bumblebee was officially greenlit for a sequel by Paramount once the $135 million pic passed the $400 million mark at the box office. It recently ended its theatrical run at $465.9 million, and is currently available on digital OnDemand, Blu-ray and DVD.
