Director Michael Bay has taken to Instagram to reveal that the official title of Paramount’s fifth Transformers movie will be Transformers: The Last Knight.
It’s unclear who (or what) the title may be referencing, but it’s certainly a departure for the franchise.
Mark Wahlberg is set to return, while Nickelodeon actress Isabela Moner and comedian Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show) are expected to join him in the action-packed sequel.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the sequel with Hasbro, and Paramount will release the film on June 23, 2017. Production is slated to start next month in Detroit.
