Director Michael Bay has signaled the start of production on “Transformers: The Last Knight” with the first photo from its Havana, Cuba, set.
The Paramount Pictures sequel is the second major Hollywood production to film in that country following the lifting of U.S. economic sanctions. Universal’s “Fast 8” was the first.
Bay’s photo, of a lime-colored vintage car, probably doesn’t reveal a new Autobot or Decepticon, but fans of classic rides can always hold out hope that the fifth installment of the franchise will go retro.
Billed as the director’s final “Transformers” film, “The Last Knight” will also shoot in Detroit and London.
Starring Mark Wahlberg, who will reprise his role as Cade Yeager from “Age of Extinction,” “Transformers: The Last Knight” arrives in theaters June 23, 2017.
