Thus with Transformers: The Last Knight upon us—the fifth in the Bayformers saga—the auteur behind the world’s most famous helicopters-at-sunset iconography has something to say: he’s out.
While speaking with Fandango, Michael Bay confirmed Transformers: The Last Knight is his final Optimus Prime rodeo.
I'm going out with a bang on this one, and I feel like you gotta go out while you're ahead, you know.
Look, with Mission: Impossible, I understand you need very choreographed stunts, but I like dirty, sloppy stunts.” So scratching off the possibility of working on an Ethan Hunt movie, it’s a mystery what Bay will do next.
He’s recently shown more of his political hand with 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, so he likely might wish to do another such film.
