Michael Bay Confirms - Transformers: The Last Knight Is his Fourth Final Movie In The Franchise
Movie website Fandango
has interviewed director Michael Bay about his plans for the future, and they once again do not include another Transformers
film. This is the fourth time Bay has made this declaration, having recanted after Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon,
and Age of Extinction
- frequently citing an admirable desire to keep his crew together and keep them getting paid. Keep reading for a link to the full interview and the relevant quote!
"These movies that I've done, they are massive movies. They take a lot out of you," Bay said when we asked if he was finally -- for real, this time -- stepping away from the Transformers franchise. "I've done it enough, and I've had a great time doing it. I'm going out with a bang on this one, and I feel like you gotta go out while you're ahead, you know. I think I've had a good run, and I've got a lot of other movies I want to do."
The interview was part III of a "Past, Present, Future" triptych of interviews with Bay discussing his career. Transformers: The Last Knight
hits theaters this Tuesday night.
Those curious to see a Transformers movie not
directed by Mr. Bay will not need to wait to see if he's in earnest this time: Travis Knight, director of Kubo & The Two Strings
, will be helming the Bumblebee movie due out next summer.
Regardless of whether or not he continues with the Transformers movie series, we at TFormers wish Mr. Bay and his film crew the best in all their future projects.
