Last week, we showed you new set photos from the London set of Transformers: The Last Knight, which offered our first look at Mark Wahlberg and Laura Haddock on the set, along with another glimpse at Bumblebee. Very little is known about what was actually being shot, but today we have even more photos of the vehicles featured in this sequel, directed by Michael Bay. We're not sure how long production will last in London for, or if we'll get a glimpse of some of the other cast members as filming continues.
We reported last week that Stanely Tucci will reprise his role as Joshua Joyce from Transformers: Age of Extinction. He won't be the only star returning from that movie, with Mark Wahlberg returning as Cade Yeager, along with stars from the original trilogy, Josh Duhamel as Lennox and Tyrese Gibson as Epps. The cast also includes a number of franchise newcomers such as Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Anthony Hopkins. Production also took place in Cuba earlier in the shoot, with location work also taking place in Russia as well. These photos from the London set surfaced through several different Twitter accounts, but we're not sure how much filming will take place in London.
It was also recently confirmed that Liam Garrigan has on to play King Arthur in this sequel. There had been rumors that the story followed Optimus Prime, returning to Earth to search for an artifact that had ties to both King Arthur and Merlin (Santiago Cabrera). We're not sure how much of this story will be set in medieval times, but there were recent photos taken from the set on the Scottish island of Skye, that featured a number of actors in medieval armor while riding on horseback.
Paramount has set a June 23, 2017 release date for Transformers 5, which will go up against Sony Pictures' comedy Rock That Body, starring Scarlett Johansson and Kate McKinnon.Michael Bay directs from a script by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan, who were all part of the Transformers franchise writers room, where they came up with numerous ideas for sequels and spinoffs. Paramount also set up a a similar writers room for future Hasbro movies such as the G.I. Joe franchise and more, following the success of the Transformers writers room.
While Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth movie in the franchise, it will kick off Paramount's new Transformers movies that they have lined up for the next few years. The studio will next release a Bumblebee spin-off on June 8, 2018, followed by Transformers 6 on June 28, 2019. Take a look at the latest videos and photos from the set of Transformers: The Last Knight.
