Its been a while since Bay gave us any real news concerning the status of Transformers 3. On his website, Michael Bay gave a huge update concerning the shooting of the film, the cast and the car model for one of the new Autobots.
Thanks to ComingSoon.net:
“Hey, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. Just been a little busy.
Transformers 3 has been going very well. We are going to shoot in LA, Chicago, Washington DC, Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow, and China. On the talent front, we just locked in Frances McDormand and John Malkovich. Both amazing actors I’ve always wanted to work with. We also just got Ken Jeong, he is the super funny actor stuck in the trunk from “Hangover” and the Doctor from “Knocked Up.”
We start shooting pre-shoots in about one month.
I also was at a Ferrari charity event this week raising money for a hospital being built by Ferrari in Haiti. I announced that night the newest Autobot to join Transformers: the Ferrari 458 Italia.”
You can say what you want about Bay and his films, but you can’t deny the man knows how to assemble a great cast(I’m not counting Megan Fox). John Malkovich being in a Transformers film is going to be great. If you ask me, hes going to play Sam’s Grandfather. I’m guessing McDormand would play one of the scientist in the film. This is all me just guessing for right now. These two could very well be voicing the new Transformers for all I know.
I have a real good idea as to what Transformer will be the Ferrari, but won’t say anything for the sake of those who didn’t read the leaked script.
Transformers 3 is set to hit theatres on July 1, 2011.
Does this make you more excited about Transformers 3?
