Michael Bay looks likely to return to direct two more transformers movies, which will be shot back-to-back! As for former leading man Shia LaBeouf, it looks like Jason Statham will indeed be taking over from him... Showblitz report that Paramount and Hasbro (who we have already discovered are considering more Transformers movies) are now considering shooting fourth and fifth movies back-to-back with "active discussions" said to be taking place. Sources close to the site have informed them that it's likely two films will be produced at the same time due to the massive savings this ensures the studio. Screenwriter Ehren Kruger reportedly has an well liked idea for the two future installments, but they do NOT include Shia LaBeouf, who’s says he’s moving on, with other close sources indicating that it'll be Jason Statham who takes over.

He will however return as executive producer alongside Steven Spielberg. Transformers 4 And 5 May Film Back-To-Back; LaBeouf Out, Statham In?
