Production is currently underway on Transformers: The Last Knight and we’ve got a pretty big addition to the film’s cast. The official Transformers Twitter account has revealed that Sir Anthony Hopkins (Thor, Silence Of The Lambs) has joined the cast of the upcoming fifth installment in the franchise in a currently undisclosed role. There’s no details whether Hopkins will be portraying a human character or a Transformer in the upcoming film.
I’ve got a feeling that this recent casting addition ties into the tease posted yesterday that “Cybertron’s newest knight already has an armor of gold…” and could potentially be the titular ‘Last Knight’. Stay tuned for any further developments regarding this news. Sound off with your thoughts on this casting addition and who you think Hopkins could potentially play in the upcoming film in the comments section below.
