The trades ran pretty light with this one, but once he wraps Six Underground for Netflix, Michael Bay will segue into an early 2020 start for ensemble action drama, Black Five.
Details are unknown about the production which is housed at Sony Pictures. Bay is reportedly partnering once more with fellow 13 Hours producer Erwin Stoff to produce the new film.
Ehren Kruger, who penned the second, third and fourth Transformer films of the five-part film saga, is penning the script.
Bay’s history of making iconic, bustling, fast-talking, set-destroying action cheese and spectacle precedes him further with the likes of Bad Boys 1 & 2, Armageddon and The Island. All guilty pleasure in my book with highs and lows.
Indeed, there are legit reasons to critique him but I won’t pretent Black Five doesn’t excite me. That Bay is still directing is pretty good news itself, so now all we need is to see some results and judge from there. Cheers! (DEADLINE)
