Mark Wahlberg Confirms 'Last Knight' is His Last 'Transformers' Movie

Transformers War for Cybertron

As producer and director for all five of the films - including the new Transformers: The Last Knight - it's been his creative vision that has shaped the $1.5 billion franchise.

"These movies that I've done, they are massive movies".

Transformers: The Last Knight could probably be the best title by far going by its sheer hype.

He said on The Graham Norton Show yesterday: "It's the last one so I get my life back!" Look, with Mission: "Impossible, I understand you need very choreographed stunts, but I like dirty, sloppy stunts".

Bay spoke with Fandango about his next release, and he said that he's simply exhausted from making these movies. "I love doing 13 Hours, I love doing Pain & Gain - I think it'll be something more serious and more adult, I guess". It's something not every director would have enough money to pull off, but the Transformers films have made enough cash over the years that Bay is being allowed to go out with a bang.

So yeah, Bay says he's done with the franchise but it's entirely possible he returns for Transformers 6. Fans will have to wait and see if his departure sticks this time.

He had recently filmed Patriots Day before Transformers 5 went into production, which required a totally different body shape.

Starring Isabela Moner, Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Josh Duhamel, John Goodman, Sophia Myles, John Turturro, Honey Holmes with Ken Watanabe and Sir Anthony Hopkins, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT lands in Cinemas and IMAX 3D on June 22.

Paramount is slated to release at least four more Transformers films after The Last Knight, one of which will be a standalone "Bumblebee" movie set for release in 2018. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
