Josh Duhamel joins Mark Wahlberg, Michael Bay for Transformers: The Last Knight

Will reprise his franchise role

Josh Duhamel, star of Michael Bay's popular Transformers franchise, is returning to the series after not appearing in the fourth film.

Duhamel will reprise his role as Major Lennox for the first time since Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon in 2011. Maor Lennox was in charge of handling the transforming vehicles following the events of the first movie. The third movie also marked the last movie in the franchise for Shia LaBeouf. Michael Bay is set to return to direct the film and Mark Wahlberg, who starred in the fourth film, will also join the cast.

Bay tweeted out the confirmation earlier today, jokingly asking Duhamel if he still knew his way around the set. Bay also revealed yesterday that the newest installment of the franchise would be called Transformers: The Last Knight.

The movie is set to be released in 2017.
