As speculation is making the rounds that chances remain pretty high that Megan Fox will be killed
in the third installment of “Transformers,” director Michael Bay is doing his duty to the fans, offering new updates on his blog
. Bay is known and appreciated for his way of always keeping fans up to speed with the developments on his latest productions, so confirmation of new cast members is clearly most welcome.
Not only has Bay managed to get two of the most critically acclaimed
and awarded stars to appear next to Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf, but he’s also added a new car to the list of “cameos” fans are to look forward to. Thus, John Malkovich and Frances McDormand have been added to the list of cast members, while auto aficionados are to keep an eye for a Ferrari 458 Italia in the upcoming film, as Bay himself says on his official blog.
“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,” Bay writes on his blog.
“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. I also want to thank everyone on this site that donated to the Make-A-Wish charity. We raised $20,000 which I will personally be matching. This is a great charity where they make wishes come true for kids who are very ill. We have had many Kids from Make-A-Wish visit us on our Transformers sets and this time we will be posting video of their visits on Transformers 3,” the director goes on to say.
Bay communicated with fans about how the third installment in the “Transformers” franchise was going was back in January this year, when he also estimated the film might go into production in May. Also then, he let it slip that the plot for the third movie would be different from the previous two, but he wouldn’t say more on that.
