Transformers 5 to film in the UK

The next Transformers movie will film on location in the UK, with Michael Bay (pictured) returning to the director’s chair.

A casting call has revealed that the film is currently in pre-production as E75. The movie will be the fifth in the hugely successful franchise and is currently planning to shoot this summer.

From 24 February, Production Intelligence subscribers will be able to get details of key crew currently attached including the unit production manager and supervising location manager.

The first three Transformers movies were largely US-based productions but the fourth, Age of Extinction, took the brand to China for the first time, filming on location in Hong Kong and on the mainland. The move was part of a larger bid to gain better access to the lucrative Chinese market – internationally the film delivered $1.1bn at the box office. 

Transformers 5 is the first of three more planned films in the franchise, with theatrical releases already set for consecutive summers from June 2017. 

The UK is one of the world’s biggest production centres and with experienced crews, generous tax credits and top studio infrastructure, is likely to also be on the shortlist for the sequels.
