Anthony Hopkins Joins TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT
The Transformers film franchise has been able to attract the names of some very respectable actors over the years like Stanely Tucci, Jon Voight, Jon Turturro, Frances McDormand, Kelsey Grammer, and more. I don't know what attracts them to these films other than money, but Sir Anthony Hopkins is the latest actor to join the upcoming film Transformers: The Last Knight. The news was posted the film's official twitter account:
There's no information on who Hopkins will be playing, but he's either going to be some kind of government official, a crazed conspiracy theorist, or maybe even the voice of one of the villains. I personally think it would be awesome if he ended up providing the voice of Unicron, who we previously speculated could be in this movie. Orson Welles provided the voice of Unicron in the original animated movie, and Hopkins' voice seems like he would fit the character.
Hopkins joins the previously cast Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox, Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School) as the film’s female lead, Izabella, and Jerrod Carmichael (Neighbors) will play an unspecified leading role.
Michael Bay is directing the film, which is set to be released on June 23rd, 2017.
