TJ Miller Joins Transformers 4; Two Autobot Vehicles Revealed
The fourth film in Michael Bay’s Transformers series is about to begin its principal photography in the coming weeks, with full production coming later this summer. The cast is coming together as well, with an interesting group of actors. Mark Wahlberg will headline the film with Bates Motel’s Nicola Peltz playing his daughter. Up-and-comer Jack Reynor will play her boyfriend. We also know that veteran actors Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammar will also take part. Joining the cast today, via The Wrap, is comedian TJ Miller. Miller previously starred in Yogi Bear and She’s Out of Your League, and has appeared numerous times on Chelsea Lately. The comedian will play a blue-collar mechanic and long-time pl of Wahlberg’s character.
Also appearing online today is our first look at two of the vehicles that will represent the Autobots in the upcoming film, which will apparently do some film in the Monument Valley of the Navajo Nation near the Utah-Arizona border. You can check out the cars below, and here is what Yahoo had to say about the two unique cars:
A 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse worth more than a whopping $2.4 million!
A special race-inspired C7 Corvette Stingray, based on Chevrolet’s upcoming 2014 production car
Previously, we’ve seen Bay use Chevy vehicles in this series, so seeing the Vette make an appearance isn’t much of a surprise. Not to mention, a Stingray concept was used in Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon for Sideswipe. Still no word on which robots will be used in the film, but it was rumored that the Dinobots may make an appearance, as well as Hound and an unnamed “samurai” robot that is a Decpticon-turned-Autobot. Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee are also expected to return. As for the baddie, Galvatron may be making his first appearance now that Megatron has found his way to the scrapyard.
