    If they plan on making the 2016 release date they will need to have someone on board already. So when will we find out who it is?

    I have a hard time believing it's coming out in 2016.

    When they announce for a second time that Michael Bay is returning after all, so we'll get the same crap a fifth time.

    even if Micheal bay doesn't direct, he'll be so involved with it it'll still feel like he did!

    i think TF5 will come in 2017, otherwise we would have some news by now (unless TF5 is coming in christmas 2016), maybe we'll get some news this toyfair, as bay was confirmed to return for AOE in toyfair 2012

    This is correct. As of right now it is 2017. I'm sure filming will start spring 2016.

    It's interesting that months later Bay hasn't personally addressed the story. If he really is going to direct again, he would've at least clarified "nothing is set in stone", but he's been silent on it, right? This is very odd.

    Last time, we didn't learn until February 2012 of Bay's return, but that doesn't mean anything. We still don't have true official dates or word on Bay's departure. They must be really confused about the movies' future, even though it made bank. Critical reception has never stopped them, so it must be the domestic gross which lagged quite a big that's concerned them.

    I doubt we'll hear anything before this summer. I also don't think T5 will be released in 2016, maybe more like 2018.

    We haven't even heard any speculation yet. There are a few rumors for who will direct G.I. Joe and any Marvel or DC movie from this point on, but we don't even have that. I think we will hear about by this summer, and they'll shoot next year for an end of June release in 2017.

    This is not correct. Paramount Pictures International SVP Edward Ryan already confirmed the release of Transformers 5 will be June 24, 2016.

    We will likely find out who's directing, be it Bay or someone new, by the end of March.

    Same producers, same suits at Paramount, so even if we did get another director they would just get someone they could tell to do everything like Bay did. An attempt to have Bayham without Bay which should be disastrous.

    2017 seems far more likely. And, let's face it, Bay will be back.
