Fifth “Transformers” Begins Filming In Cuba

Production has officially begun on Michael Bay’s “Transformers: The Last Knight,” the fifth film in the blockbuster series which has generated over $3.7 billion at the global box office from its first four films.

Bay made the announcement on his Instagram page from Cuba where shooting is kicking off. The production is the second major American studio film to make use of the locale since the lifting of the decades old trade embargo, the other being the eighth “Fast and Furious” film.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” sees Mark Wahlberg returning as Cade Yeager and Josh Duhamel reprising his role of Lieutenant Colonel Lennox. Also onboard are Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael.

Filming will move stateside on June 6th to Detroit where much of the last film, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” was also shot. The film is currently targeting a June 23rd 2017 release.
