Director Steven Caple Jr. in his film about transformers, he plans to involve an actor known, among others from Hamilton or The Birth of a Star – Anthony Ramos. Ramos is reportedly in the final negotiations to appear in a new Bumblebee expansion pack to the Transformers movie franchise. Paramount and Hasbro previously announced that two films will be made about extraterrestrial mechanical beings. The second production will be handled by director Angel Manuel Soto ( Charm City Kings ).
As reported by Deadline , Anthony Ramos has been Caple’s main choice since he took the Transformers director’s chair. The main female role is yet to be cast, but two candidates are competing for her position – Kiki Layne ( Prince of New York 2, The Old Guard ) and Dominique Fishback ( Judas and the Black Messiah, Project Power ). The production is set to take place in the 90s; photos will be taken in New York and South America. Steven’s film will be based on a screenplay by Joby Harold. James Vanderbilt is working on another project from this universe. It will be based on the animated series Beast Warsfrom the mid 90’s. It tells about humanoid robots that transform into animal-shaped characters such as Cheetor (Cheetah), Optimus Primal (Gorilla), Rhinox (Rhino) and others.
Since 2000, the Transformers franchise films have had highs and lows, but all together have generated close to $ 5 billion in revenue. The premiere of this part is planned for June 24, 2022.
