Director Michael Bay has taken to Instagram to reveal that the official title of Paramount’s fifth “Transformers” movie will be “Transformers: The Last Knight.”

It’s unclear who (or what) the title may be referencing, but it’s certainly a departure for the franchise.

Mark Wahlberg is set to return, while Nickelodeon actress Isabela Moner and comedian Jerrod Carmichael (“The Carmichael Show”) are expected to join him in the action-packed sequel.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” boasts the involvement of executive producer Steven Spielberg as well as a litany of writers including Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the sequel with Hasbro, and Paramount will release the film on June 23, 2017. Production is slated to start next month in Detroit.
