Production is officially kicking off on Michael Bay’s “Transformers: The Last Knight” this week in Cuba, marking the second big budget Hollywood film to shoot there since the lifting of the longstanding trade embargo.
It follows in the wake of the first, “Fast and Furious 8,” which visited the island nation last month. Bay himself confirmed the T5 production news on his personal Instagram account today, though has revealed little else about the project as yet.
It’s unclear how Cuba will be utilized in “The Last Knight,” a film which still little is known about beyond the return of Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel’s characters from the previous films. Actor Tyrese Gibson has also expressed his interest in returning, but Bay is not saying either way about his involvement just yet.
All that’s been speculated about the plot is that it will involve the Autobots searching for the Quintessons, the beings believed to be responsible for the creation of the Transformers race. Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan penned the script with the film slated to hit cinemas next Summer.
