The much-awaited movie will be directed by Michael Bay Paramount Pictures

The filming of Transformers: The Last Knight kicked off in Cuba just a week after director Michael Bay revealed the shooting destination. The movie will be the second major Hollywood film after Universal Pictures's Fast and Furious 8 to utilise the country's different locations

A week ago, Bay shared a photo that featured Optimus Prime and was accompanied with these words on his Instagram account: "michaelbayMy Next Film - starting production this week in Cuba." "#autobots #transformers."

Now, the director has shared the first photo from the movie set in Cuba. The photo shared on Instagram shows a green car parked on the street of some undisclosed location in the country.

Bay wrote on Instagram: "michaelbayCUBA! Second American Movie shot in Cuba. Transformers. Amazing place!#transformers."

As of now, it is not known as to which cast members and what scenes will be filmed in the country. Also, Paramount Pictures has been tight-lipped about the movie's plot details. Moreover, the studio has refrained from releasing the movie's official synopsis.
