Headlines - Transformer 5 Title Revealed

Yesterday, the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise has a title - Transformers: The Last Knight.

The Last Knight title is likely a reference to the Knights of Cybertron which were alluded to in the most recent Transformers installment, Age of Exctinction.

Production of The Last Knight is set to begin June 6 in Detroit with other locations scheduled around the world. “Having one of the highest-profile film franchises created in Michigan is a major economic boost and a testament to the talent of the state’s production community,” said Jenell Leonard, commissioner of the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office when production plans were first revealed. “The production and economic investment is now happening sooner rather than later, and obviously, the project is a certainty rather than merely a possibility.”

Mark Wahlberg is returning to the franchise after debuting in 2014's film as Cade Yaeger and will be joined by Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael. Michael Bay will return to direct the film written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Ken Nolan.

Transformer: The Last Knight is set for release June 23, 2017.
