Fellow Seibertronians, Dr.Va'al - who is on quite the roll today - has pointed us towards an article that reveals that Paramount has hired cinematographer Jonathan Sela to work on Transformers 5. Jonathan Sela has previously done work for projects such as 'John Wick', 'A Good Day To Die Hard', and 'Max Payne' as well as the TV show 'Limitless' in the pilot episode. So what do you think of this addition to the movie crew? Think it'll work out for the better, or not so much? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Here is an interesting post on Instagram from DJ/producer Diplo.
"Big meeting about transformers 6 transformers vs major lazer #michealbae"
Could this mean that Major Lazer is going to produce the soundtrack for The Transformers 6 movie? For the Transformers fans that are unaware of who Major Lazer is, they are an American electronic music group of DJ/producers Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Some of their musical sytles includes electronic, reggaeton, house, mixing EDM with reggae, and moombahton genres. Which would work perfectly with Micheal Bay's Transformers Movies. This is certainly only speculations right now as of course this early in the stage things can fall through so please treat this as a rumour for now until we get an official announcement.

In a little bit of news, which probably only counts as trivia at this stage, Collider had a quick chat at SXSW with Robert Kirkman, co-creator of The Walking Dead comics series among other things, about his involvement with the Goldsman-led Transformers writers room - which he only attended for a day, as personal matters took priority. See more below, including the embedded video!
As you can see in the video, Kirkman says that he loves Transformers, and became a part of the writing team after a casual lunch wth di Bonaventura, who optioned his comic Invincible (the comic adaption list that Perri mentions in the video is Dave Trumbore’s 10 Comic Books That Need an R-Rated Adaptation). Still, though he’s no longer a part of the project (which is a bummer because it seems insane and his involvement made it seem somehow less so), he says,
“I have heard from the people that are in that room there are a lot of amazing Transformers things coming, and I’m very happy as a fan to see what comes from that.”
Fellow Seibertronians, an article has surfaced, which announces that Transformers 5 is to be filmed, in part, at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac among several other locations across the state. The article may be viewed here, but can also be seen below.
Transformers 5, directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg and Peter Cullen, is expected to film in part at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac beginning this summer, along with several other locations across the state.
“They have filmed several Transformers productions (at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios) in the past, and I expect they would utilize some of the same locations,” says Jenell Leonard, commissioner of the Michigan Film and Digital Media Office, formerly the Michigan Film Office. “However, all production locations are tentative and fluid.”
Leonard says the film’s production will use Paramount Pictures’ last planned Michigan tax credit funds. She says even though the film tax incentive was cut last July, the state must honor existing deals with studios, like a multi-project agreement with Paramount.
She says Paramount offered to return half of a $42 million planned tax credit that was allotted for multiple films to the state. Doing so allowed the studio to allocate the other $21 million exclusively to Transformers 5.
“Paramount came to the table and said if they could apply half of their encumbered incentive dollars to Transformers, they would be willing to give the other half of the $21 million dollars back to the state,” Leonard says.
Michigan’s film tax credit program took the form of reimbursements awarded after filming was complete.
Leonard expects that production on Transformers 5 will start in the summer and will end in the fall. Transformers 5 will be the fourth film in the series shot in Michigan, joining the original 2007 film as well as Transformers: Dark of the Moon and last year’s Age of Extinction. In Age of Extinction, Paramount created a set in downtown Detroit on the site of the former Statler Hotel that was designed to look like Hong Kong.
Studios must prove they are spending their dollars in Michigan and hiring Michiganders in an independent audit conducted before filming, and be in regular communications with the Michigan Film and Digital Media Office.
Studios are required to hire Michigan residents and out-of-towners at a 1:1 ratio. Leonard says the Transformers 5 shoot will create around 228 full-time job equivalents.
“Studios submit a line-item budget with how many hires they would have and submit the script for review,“ Leonard says. “We base the incentive they would be eligible for off that application process.”
Via Comic Book Resources, we learn that the Michigan Film and Digital Media Office has greenlit a deal with Paramount to film the next instalment in the live-action Transformers movie series, directed by Michael Bay. While we had heard rumours and casting about this previously, this is the first official confirmation - read more here and below!
Director Michael Bay’s “Transformers 5″ will shoot this summer in Detroit, the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office announced today.
The news comes as a result of a restructured incentive agreement with Paramount Pictures that will save the state $21 million.
The big-budget sequel is expected to inject $80 million into the Michigan economy and hire 850 cast and crew members, 450 of which will be state residents. In addition, about 700 extras will be needed.

After the US, with Chicago in particular, and China, it appears that Transformers will also come to the UK. According to a number of sources, including Screen Daily, Michael Bay and Paramount might be set to head to the UK for their casting and part of the shooting of the next instalment in the live-action movie series for the Transformers. Read more here and below!
a franchise first UK shoot could bring with it significant benefits in the shape of the UK tax credit should the production hit the minimum spend threshold.
Iceland also offers an enticing incentive for inward investment productions.
Some UK studio work on the film is a possibility, but the production is not yet booked into one of the major facilities, according to sources.
Paramount has its sights set on a summer shoot for the Michael Bay-directed film, having already announced a US release date of June 23, 2017.
The studio may also be lining up repeat visits to the UK, according to sources, with additional Transformers films due to be released in 2018 - a Bumblebee spinoff - and 2019.
After the confirmation during Toy Fair 2016, from Paramount and Hasbro directly, that the sixth instalment in the movie series for the big screen Transformers will focus on Bumblebee alone, today we receive an update via The Hollywood Reporter in which gives CEO Brad Grey a little more detail on the 2018 feature. Read more here and below!
Paramount will sandwich a Bumblebee movie between its next two Transformers pics. The three films will roll out in successive summers beginning with a Michael Bay-helmed Transformers 5 on June 23, 2017, followed by the Bumblebee spinoff June 8, 2018. Another stand-alone will arrive June 28, 2019.
The studio announced the dates for the three movies Feb. 12 but was vague about whether or not the trio would include a spinoff, simply calling the films Transformers 5, 6 and 7.
“There are characters in the Transformers universe that can be and should be made into their own movies,” Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey told The Hollywood Reporter. “We will make the first movie with Michael and go right into a Bumblebee movie, which will be at a lower cost.”
Considering the Transformers franchise has spawned $3.8 billion in worldwide box office since 2007, it should come as no surprise that Paramount is looking to pick up the pace on its robot juggernaut.
As announced in the investors meeting and webcast, Paramount and Hasbro are already reaping the fruits of the writers' room production, and have not one but three new movie releases lined up for the coming years! Hasbro reached out directly with the full information, which you can find below. What do you make of the continuation of the series, and the Bumblebee spin-off?
