Even though Transformers 4: Age of Extinction drew in the big bucks at the box office and broke the record for this year thus far, it seems like its sequel Transformers 5 is still not a surety as new reports emerge suggesting that the movie's future is in a state of limbo.

The most recent bit of news that has been doing the rounds on the internet is about Michael Bay -- who has directed all the movies in the series thus far -- backing out of the franchise now. If Bay were to actually make good on his suggestions it would be a big blow to the series which is branded by the director's stylistic sensibilities. In fact this report  is also corroborated by earlier reports wherein Bay was waffling about coming on board Transformers 5 and even wanted to ensure he worked on a passion project before making the next mega blockbuster, thus pushing the release date.

In another recent development, another member of the crew was rather clueless about the sequel in the pipeline. In an interview with Mstars dated July 31, the composer for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, Steve Jablonsky, revealed that things weren't definite yet and he wasn't sure if the movie was even getting made. When asked if he was working on Transformers 5 as well, he seemed pretty clueless.

"I literally don't know anything about Transformers 5. I don't even know if they're going to make it," he said. "So I haven't even thought about it at all."

Janlonsky's complete lack of knowledge on the subject might raise suspicions about the next movie getting made at all.

"You probably know more than I do! Nobody's said anything to me whether Transformers 5 is happening or not," he added. "If it does happen, then I will think about it at that point."
