The director of all the movies in the sequel, Michael Bay, is reported to be backing out of the franchise. Baym who is known for his great visual abilities, plans to shift his focus elsewhere, according to reports by Telegraph. He is all set to hand out the steering wheel of the adventure franchise.

"There's kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make," says Bay to USA Today, about moving out of the "Transformers" world  "I have a lot of stories to tell. And it's about flexing new muscles."

Bay has worked on some of the interesting horror films including "Ouija" (and sci-fi thriller "Project Almanac") which are yet to be released. He is also looking forward to work more on TV based projects. He has helmed the TV series including "Last Ship and "Starz's Black Sails."

Meanwhile, another crewmember of the film, Steve Jablonsky recently hinted in his interview that he has no clue of "Transformer 5."

"I literally don't know anything about Transformers 5. I don't even know if they're going to make it,. So I haven't even thought about it at all. You probably know more than I do! Nobody's said anything to me whether Transformers 5 is happening or not.f it does happen, then I will think about it at that point," stated Steve to MStarz.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" released in theatres on June 27, 2014.  The movie proved to be a major success in the  box office. The film was lead by Mark Wahlberg and it tells the story of Chicago five years after it was destroyed in the last film.
