I won’t say that the Transformers movie series is cursed. It’s too successful, too huge, and too popular to carry such a label, even if Transformers: Age of Extinction underperformed at the domestic box office. However, the Transformers movie series does have the nasty habit of chewing up actors and spitting them out and ensuring that nobody takes them seriously for a good long while. Look at Shia LeBeouf, whose time in the series saw him transition from a promising young actor into walking, weeping art project. Look at Megan Fox, who was reduced to a sex object and has had to spend the past few five years reminding us that she’s a perfectly fine actress with rock solid chops. Only Mark Wahlberg has weathered this series and that’s because he’s Mark Wahlberg – nothing embarrasses him anymore.

So the news that the young TV star Isabela Moner is joining the cast of Transformers 5 makes me want to grab her parents by shoulders and give them a good shake while demanding for them to explain why they obviously don’t love their child.

The news doesn’t come as a surprise, as Bay entered talks to direct last fall after months of speculation (and let’s be real, totally reasonable assumptions). There’s a catch this time, though: It’s going to be the last Transformers movie Bay will ever direct. Or so he says. For now. Read the Michael Bay Transformers 5 comments after the jump.  Read More »
