Michael Bay's live-action thriller Transformers Age Of Extinction became a massive box-office success by earning over $1bn globally in 2014. Loyal fans of the franchise have been anxiously waiting to get any positive update about the fifth instalment, and they were only getting bits and pieces for the past few months.
Finally, multiple updates for the movie have emerged, which will elate fans. Akiva Goldsman and his writer's room team have finally framed the blueprint of the upcoming sequel of the action-filled movie trilogy. Deadline reports that the Oscar winning writer and director has started working on the script of the Transformers sequel with Mark Wahlberg as the lead. The production for the movie will begin in June 2017 and rumours are abuzz that Bay will return to direct the sequel of Age Of Extinction.
But the American filmmaker has claimed that his involvement in the science fiction action film has not yet been finalised as talks about the same are only being 'discussed'. "Directing TF5. No, it's not official. I have not committed to any idea as of yet. Just met with Steven and we are discussing," Bay explained on his official Twitter account.
The plot of the upcoming movie is a well kept secret, but as Akiva hinted earlier, Transformers 5 will follow the mythology of the robotic saviours (Optimus Prime and his troop of Autobots) and the destroyers (Decepticons) from the universe of the Hasbro toys.
Deadline also claimed that an animated movie is being planned that would narrate the origin of the Cybertron planet. Paramount has signed Ant-Man scribes Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari who will head the writing department for the animated prequel movie.
