Transformers 4 News from Michigan Casting Call

Posted on 06-01-2013 at 03:30 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Fox Detroit has posted a video about the recent Transformers 4 casting call in Michigan. Following the previous Transformers live action movies filming in Michigan Michael Bay is stepping up his filming in the area - this video gives you an idea of just how much of Michigan is being used for Transformers 4, including a reference to how part of the story will be set in Hong Kong, but will be filming in Michigan.

Of interest to those tracking character reveals - Maryellen Aviano, the Transformers 4 casting co-ordinator, when discussing the vehicles that will be used in Transformers 4 mentions Corvettes, suggesting more than one Corvette character will be featured in the new movie. We already know that a 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray is to be featured, but this suggests that a second Corvette will also be appearing - could Sideswipe be returning?

Check out the video segment embedded below:

I'm picturing Barricade with an OCP Police car paint job.



(not really interesting in the human casting part)

I'd buy a Robocop Transformer that turned from police car to giant Robocop (EDIT - for a dollar)!

I was just there this morning, waiting for about 3 hours. I was #476, but I think there were more like ~300 people in front of me. A long line from outside to get into a long line inside to get into a ballroom with 300 chairs.

First off... I was there today and can say for fact that there was at least 1500 people that showed up. I want you all to see this vid and comment on a few things. First off, the casting director ( very nice woman by the way) says they will miss the old cast including Josh? And when she talks about the new cars in the movie, she mentions the Bugatti but when mentioning the new Corvette, she does not say new Stingray or new Corvette but says Corvettes with an S.

Could it be a slip or just that she didn't mean to say it with an S?

No Josh or Tyrese?

Slingshot, AND Sideswipe maybe? Please?

I guess that means Markie Mark is confirmed to be in T4.... and that Shia "I can't actually Act" LaBoef will not be in T4 (Thank god for that)
Corvettes? Oh Sweet Primus let it not be a pair of idiots this time.

Those things were actually confirmed quite a while ago.

Just before reading this article I was discussing with a friend how sad it would be if neither Sideswipe nor Dino/Mirage (the two coolest 'second-tier' Autobots to survive the last movie) would return.

Oh please oh please let Sideswipe return! Absolutely my favorite Autobot (in both design and just all around badassery) from the films.

I guess Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Li BingBing, and Kelsey Grammer are all in the film too.

Whoa nelly.

Oh I hope Sideswipe comes back! It wouldn't be the same without him now that Ironhide is dead.

"Optimus & Bumblebee are the stars"


Why Bumblebee? Optimus I get, he's the leader of the good guys, but who gives a shit about Bumblebee??? Why is Bumblebee a "star"? Especially now that Sam isn't in the movie it makes no sense.

And who wants more Bumblebee toys? Isn't everybody pretty much Bumblebee'd out by now?

Why would you even post this? EVERYTHING Fox says is bullshit. They can't truly inform anyone with their lies and slander. The entire casting list is more than likely 99% wrong. You should've waited for a more NON-BIASED news source.

I guess in the studio's eyes they've been the two Autobots who have been the focal point throughout. The rest of the them have always been a supporting cast really.

Absolutely. The casting director didn't know what she was saying.

Man, I sure hope Sideswipe comes back.
optimusb1327
Sideswipe?? Sunstreaker?? I think we already got enough autobots (five). We need some more decepticons!!

You think? I mean, someone who works close to the movie obviously has no idea what she's talking about.

You do realize that you're confusing the independently run local station with that of the Cable News Station, right? Their bias only comes down to Politics that can get a spin on it, just like all the other cable news. When it's actual news, something that happened, they tend to just report it normally. As do the smaller outlets that are run independently of the national Cable channel. That's why they don't juggle Morning shows with outlets. Settle your sabres.

Boy do I hope they bring back Swipes. Now that I think about it, Sideswipe and Slingshot does sound like a duo when put together.

Keep in mind the guy you quoted is the same user who insulted someone for liking the FOC combaticons and said transformers toys should be designed by "true fans".

Corvette possibilities:

Sure, SideSwipe in the new Bayverse. I like him.

Tracks would be nice to see.

Sunstreaker could be a 'vette this time since SideSwipe is.


As for Decepticons?

Well, they can retcon some of the Stunticons. Dead End would be a candidate. I like Breakdown and Wildrider as the cars they traditionally were. I guess I'm a lesser fans of Porsches unless we're talking Jazz' 911.

Now I forgot that Hot Rod could come in as a Corvette.

If they want to make him special however, I don't think he should be the same kind of car as SideSwipe.

Finally, it'd be great if SideSwipe had a larger role in this movie.

BumbleBee was fun because they added Wreck-Gar's personality to him a bit (his speech anyway) to make him even more interesting.

See, part of his G1 charm (BumbleBee's) was his close relationship with Spike. In the earliest episodes HOUND shared that as well.

I think for that to work, and to make HOUND as I always loved him, he needs to be a small vehicle like a Jeep Wrangler.

I have very limited experience with TF Prime and so I don't really know the Bulkhead character. But the vehicle Michael Bay presented as Hound sure looks like it'd be a great Bulkhead. With Ironhide's tough-guy character deceased, Bulkhead would be great to take on that role - especially with this vehicle.

But Kup had served that purpose in G1.5. And I miss Kup.

One other thing about the Bayverse:

Devastator was identified only by sub-title in TF TMP (2007 I think). They could have changed it to Brawl because if you don't take Bay just not caring about mistakes that could've been easily fixed into account, then you have Devastator returning as the Constructicon combiner he was always supposed to be.

But hey, Megatron returned, right?

But what the hell had happened to Barricade in TF TMP?
