Bay is currently in post-production on the fifth installment of the Transformers series, The Last Knight , which is out June 23rd. Hunting El Chapo: The Thrilling Inside Story of the American Lawman Who Captures the World's Most-Wanted Drug Lord , out October 3rd, chronicles the manhunt for the infamous drug lord. "El Chapo," real name Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, evaded authorities for over a decade before his capture and extradition last year to the United States.
