As the aesthetic embodiment of the American ethos of “More! More! More!” the Transformers franchise, of course, wasn’t going to stop at just four films. This thing is going to ten, 20, 100 movies, baby! Today Deadline brings news that the Transformers writers room has wrapped up and the fifth installment in the series is officially a go, with Michael Bay directing and Mark Wahlberg continuing as the male lead. (Missing the opportunity to reboot the Transformers series as the movie version of True Detective, with a different Hollywood star interacting with gigantic fighting robots every installment.) There’s no word on a title, but someone in the room had to have brought up Tran5former5, right?
Transformers: Age of Extinction.
