Mark Wahlberg - Transformers 5 has 2016 release date

The fifth 'Transformers' film is to be released in 2016.

Paramount has today (19.06.14) unveiled its official 2016 slate, revealing that the fifth movie in the sci-fi-action series will be in cinemas in two years time, following on from the upcoming release of 'Transformers: Age of Extinction'.

Michael Bay returned to direct the fourth film in the series - which will star Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci and Nicola Peltz - but it is so far unknown whether he has agreed to helm the next instalment.

Bay previously stated that 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' would be the beginning of a new trilogy, implying that he would be working on the fifth and unannounced sixth 'Transformers' movies.

The original trilogy starred Shia LaBeouf as teenager Sam Witwicky, who discovers he owns a mystical talisman named the Allspark - which would give unlimited power to whoever owns it - and becomes involved in a battle between the Autobot and Decepticon robots.

'Transformers' producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura previously revealed that the Mark Wahlberg starring fourth movie would be a ''continuation'' of the previous films.

He said: ''On a certain level it's a continuation of the previous stories, in the fact that it acknowledges what has transpired before it.''

Other Paramount films slated for release in 2016 include 'Paranormal Activity 5', 'Beverly Hills Cop IV', 'G.I. Joe 3', 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2' and 'Star Trek 3', The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

'Transformers: Age of Extinction' is to be released on June 27.
