The “Transformers” franchise is about to get even crazier than usual with The BBC today reporting that Michael Bay’s currently in production fifth installment in the series will go back in time.
Specifically scenes for “Transformers: The Last Knight” are being shot on the Isle of Skye in northwest Scotland, scenes that show actors wearing traditional medieval garments and riding on horseback.
Though the film will primarily take place in the modern era, it sounds as if there’ll be at least one flashback sequence which ties the mythology of the Autobots and the Decepticons in with the legend of King Arthur.
The report follows on from rumors that magic from Arthurian legends would play a prominent role in the upcoming film with Merlin having received his powers from an ancient Transformer at some point in history. It might also explain the first poster for the film released the other month which seemed to include Transformer ‘dragons’.
“Transformers: The Last Knight” is slated to hit cinemas on June 23rd 2017.
