Hugo Weaving Voicing Megatron in Transformers!
The very latest news on all things Transformers is that the one and only Agent Smith from The Matrix, Hugo Weaving, is voicing the Decepticon leader Megatron in the upcoming Transformers movie from Michael Bay. Ain't It Cool News helped break the story with a bit of top secret work on the secretive Transformers website - www.sectorseven.org. Type NBETWO to login and click the scorpion to read the e-mails. They have confirmed this and it is a go, topping off everything else this movie has pulling for it. I love Hugo Weaving, like a very few rare other actors, anything he touches is gold. And now it's getting more and more impressive, especially after the 20 minutes we were shown at ShoWest. I really expect July 4th to be a huge opening day, guaranteed.
Aw man. I was hoping they were gonna be using Frank for it. But still I think Hugo can do a good job with it.

As a fan of the original Transformers series, I was eager to see this movie despite the massive design changes if Peter Cullen and Frank Welker provide the voices of Prime and Megatron. These two have the potential of saving the film from being less than average if that were the case. Now that Welker is cut in favor of Hugo Weaving, I am disappointed. Though I'm curious as to see how Hugo would sound as Megatron, the overall feel I get over this movie is that it's just another incarnation like Transformers Armada and Transformers Cybertron rather than an actual remake because none of the original voices save Peter Cullen are in it. If that's the case, then I'd rather have Gary Chalk (who voiced Prime from Beast Wars onwards) as Prime instead.

Hugo Weaving's got an awesome voice, I mean, did anyone hear his voice as V in V For Vendetta? Smexy! But that'll be weird, hearing his gorgeous voice with a robot...oh well, I heard his voice with a penguin earlier this year...

Frank Welker was supposed to do it, but it changed and Hugo got cast, but Peter Cullen is still voicing Optimus.
