The overall box office has been down this summer despite there being an atypical number of genuinely good movies in theaters, but one film that didn’t disappoint at the box office was Transformers: Age of Extinction. Though the pic will likely be eclipsed stateside by Guardians of the Galaxy as the top domestic earner of the summer, Age of Extinction has already crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide. Consequently, of course there will be a Transformers 5, but the question now turns to who will direct it. Michael Bay has helmed each and every Transformers movie thus far, even though he briefly gave up directing duties on Transformers 4 before ultimately deciding to helm the movie anyway.
Now Bay is apparently planning on handing over the Transformers 5 director chair to another filmmaker, but will it hold? More after the jump.
