Malkovich, McDormand, Jeong & a Ferrari Join Transformers 3
Today the master of explosions himself, Michael Bay, updated his own website with a big casting addition for the forthcoming, guaranteed box office hit Transformers 3. The director revealed John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, and Ken Jeong (The Hangover, Knocked Up) have all joined the sequel. Deadline also has a bit of extra information revealing McDormand's character is a big one as the National Intelligence Director while Malkovich will be playing Sam Witwicky's first boss. No word on Jeong's role, but all three of these additions should make things a little more interesting, not to mention the newly announced Autobot.
The new Autobot that'll be rolling out on screens next summer will be the Ferrari 458 Italia (seen below) and it's one sexy piece of machinery. Bay made the announcement at a Ferrari charity event this past week raising money for a hospital being built in Haiti. Remember, this huge box office bonanza will be shooting pretty much everywhere: Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow, and China. Surely there's more details on the way as the project will be starting pre-shoots in a month, so stay tuned for more news on Transformers 3 as it arrives. Do this new casting make anyone more excited for this?
