Tranformers fans, rejoice! It looks like the franchise’s first spin-off has finally gotten a director. In a report by Deadline, it has been confirmed that Travis Knight of Kubo and the Two Strings will oversee the project.
The Oscar-nominated director is set to make his first live-action debut with the title. Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg are attached to direct the project. The script was penned by Christina Hodson.
So far, there is little know about the spin-off venture, but fans can expect it to focus squarely on the vibrant yellow Transformer. During a recent set visit by Collider, the site asked how many other bots were expected to appear in the film. Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura said he didn’t see that number being very big for now.
You can check out the synopsis for the next Transformers movie below:
“The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.”
The cast of Transformers: The Last Knight features Mark Wahlberg (Planet of the Apes) as Cade Yeager, Isabela Moner (100 Things To Do Before High School) as Izabella, Josh Duhamel (Life as We Know It) as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox, John Turturro (The Big Lebowski) as Seymour Simmons, and Tyrese Gibson (Furious 7) as Robert Epps, as well as Jerrod Carmichael (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising), Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World). The voice cast includes Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime and John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane) as Hound.
Michael Bay, who has directed the previous four installments in Transformers live-action film franchise, returns to direct the fifth installment. Transformers: The Last Knight was written by a trio of screenwriters: Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Ken Nolan.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the yellow Camaro, this comes along. Will this series have the same impact as the Transformers? Would you be willing to see a movie that pretty much focuses on Bumblebee?
