Well, according to news breaking tonight, it seems that Michael Bay is – as we assumed for a while now – in talks to direct Transformers 5.

But that’s not the end of the Transformers coming this way.

The writers’ room have come up with an idea – an experiment, if you will – where they release Tranformers 5 AND an animated movie at the same time, telling one big overlapping story.

Academy Award winner Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend, A Beautiful Mind) will write Transformers 5 while Ant-Man writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari will write a story based on Cybertron that will tell the origin of the Transformers.

Oh, and Mark Wahlberg is tipped to return as inventor Cade Yeager. That name, though.

No dates for either of these movies yet, but we reckon it will happen pretty quickly.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
