Production is well underway with Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight and it looks like The Musketeers star Santiago Cabrera is the latest addition to the cast of the movie. Paramount Pictures broke the news with a post on the official Transformers Instagram page, which you can check out below.
Cabrera joins the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson, as well as franchise newcomers Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock and Sir Anthony Hopkins. A number of Transformers have also been confirmed for the sequel, including Bumblebee, Barricade, Megatron, Sqweeks and most recently, Drift.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but rumor has it that the story will revolve around Optimus Prime trying to locate a mysterious artifact to bring Cybertron back to life. That artifact apparently has ties with Merlin (as in, Merlin the Magician of King Arthur lore), so it’s safe to say that he’ll be looking for Excalibur. After all, the logo for this movie does include a sword, so what else could it be?
Directed by Michael Bay from a script by Ken Nolan and Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Transformers: The Last Knight is currently scheduled to open in theaters on June 23, 2017. Are you guys looking forward to the movie?
