Michael Bay Says 14 Transformers Stories in Development

There are 14 Transformers stories outlined, according to Michael Bay

Michael Bay says that there are 14 Transformers stories currently outlined, according to Yahoo UK. The director talked about what might be coming for the franchise at a preview event for the upcoming film Transformers: The Last Knight at London’s Cineworld IMAX. The event showed fans new footage from the film. Bay reportedly appeared in a pre-recorded segment before the footage and said that the new stories had come out of the development process for the current film. One of the stories is likely to be the Bumblebee spin-off, which will be directed by Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight. Knight is also the President and CEO of LAIKA, which is known for stop-motion animated films like Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls.

This does not mean we’re getting 14 Transformers films. This just means that there are 14 Transformers stories that came out of the writers room. Bay reportedly reiterated that Transformers: The Last Knight was going to be his last film in the franchise.

Here is the official synopsis: “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.”
