Transformers 4 to Film on Location in London

Casting website Mandy.com has put out a casting call for Transformers 4, containing similar information to previous casting calls, with one additional detail - a filming location is given. According to the details they have posted, Transformers 4 will film at various overseas locations including London! Yes, in 2012 London hosted the Olympics, and in 2013 it will play host to Michael Bay shooting the fourth Transformers movie. It might not be on the same level but it is certainly going to be interesting to see how it plays out.

Keep it TFW for more Transformers 4 news.

So Michael Bay might be filming........... in London?!? In the UK?? The Health and Safety officials are going to go absolutely mental
Oh but maybe we'll get a British police car robot, that'd be awesome
Starfire22
I almost feel sorry for the people of london.
jackgaughan
Maybe Chase or Prowl'll be in it, and be a Transformer version of PC Plodd from Noddy.
SHINOBI03
I'll be damned if there won't be any Transformer with British stereotypes like thick accents or politeness or being gentlemen (or gentlebots?), tuxs, top hats, monocle, mustaches and drinking energon in tea cups.



What?! We all know he's going for that approach! He's Michael EFFing Bay! Was there any movie without racial stereotypes?!
PrimesRule
Sounds cool. Perhaps where the fourth film's final battle will take place.
Alooulla
Difficult one for me. As a Brit i enjoy references to my country, but as a fan of London's gothic architecture, i would wince to see it destroyed. But maybe he'll take out the Gherkin and that horrid new tower so it wont be all bad.

Also yes, British Autobots or Cons please.
uchihabro77
This will be where prowl comes in and takes ironhides place, then they kill off bumblebee and bring in hot rod/hot shot or rodimus.

I'm pleading for a GoBots Tux homage.
Brooticus
One can hope we're treated to some Cock-er-ney TF's resident to the UK (and I'd love to see prowl in UK police force livery), but more likely it's a case of "The world is in peril, so we need to quickly show a montage of the worlds most famous landmarks".

I demand this. I actually really love it when shows like the Simpsons or Family Guy lampoon the English, and this could be equally (and perhaps unintentionally) hilarious.
PrimesRule
I would love some British Cybertronians. It worked so well with Jetfire so I can't see why it would not work now if it worked so well in the past.
MV95
I find it interesting that we have a character from Texas and filming is in London.
Lazerwave
I can imagine one of those British Secret Agent cars as an Autobot.
Krueger
Good news. Just don't do what Hollywood usually does and annoyingly give the English “Alfred the Butler” accents like they do in all Roland Emmerich films. Not everyone in England speaks like that. In fact, virtually no one does, expect the snobbish elite. I'm sure Americans know that.
Wheeljack_Prime
Double decker bus bot or GTFO.
FatalT 71
I would only accept TF4 if it starred Thew.

It needs to be voiced by Boris Johnson!

Didn't Gordon Brown say he wanted Optimus Prime to come and help the UK a few years ago? Maybe he can have a cameo
Gingerchris
Now all we need is a British combiner TF to use the London Eye for a monocle.

Actually, the London Eye would make a nice Space Bridge/Ground Bridge ring...

How big would that thing be??!? As for the Ground Bridge, I just got a weird image of the Eye just spinning around reeeeally fast

A Postman Pat transformer voiced by Eric Idle is probably the only thing that can save this film.

More people speak like that than you realise. I speak like that. Mind you, i cultivated it from when i was a child and wishing to speak like Peter Cushing in Star Wars.
Gingerchris
There's going to be fog. Lots of thick fog. Even though London hasn't been like that for years. Wonder if there'll be a Jack the Ripper Cybertronian?

And the people inside the capsules going 'Wheeeeeee!' just before they all explode Bay-stylee.

I hope he doesn't go and make anymore transformers british, enough of them in the trilogy, looking at jetfire and bee.

Most of all I hope he doesn't ruin a G1 character like Prowl by giving him a british accent.

I always thought that Prowl could work with a English accent, and how are 2 robots enough?

tbh he could just film our New Year fireworks display, that always looks like it's going to blow up half of The Thames. Maybe to promote the film Bay could organise the 2013/14 display??
Gingerchris
Lemme guess: Big Ben is actually an ancient Cybertronian artifact.

Too high for me. I went in it with my girlfriend and a mate and didn't enjoy it at all. That and it was a baking hot day. Not the kind of weather to be enclosed in a glass bubble. Maybe some handy Baysplosions might've helped take my mind off vertigo and being sun cooked.

I hope not. London is going bye-bye in GI Joe 2. Still, I do hope an action sequence takes place there.

Terrible idea now that I think about it, especially within the British community considering that devastating earthquake several years back.
Dolza_Khyron
he doesn't even have a script yet, and he's already looking to blow up new cities!

so does that mean the high schooler is going to be british? if so, how does she have a texan race car driver boyfriend.

for that matter, how does a 18 year old high school girl, have a race car driver *aka nascar* boyfriend?

I remember going on it when I was 11 in the winter with my sister and dad and wondering why it was going so slowly, and later wondering why it started going backwards when we finally got to the top , it didn't help how they kept going "oh look! Buckingham palace!" Whilst I was running around the capsule wondering where the hell they were looking at

A script has been penned for quite a while.
There are Americans that live in London, you know?
It's Michael Fucking Bay, all you need to know on the last part.

Tons of possibilities

Many NASCAR drivers are in their 20's. Plus, there was a driver a few years back that was 18 when he made his debut. On top of that, we're not even sure it's NASCAR. It could be some guy that races a beat up stock car on a local track where the winnings total $50. And there are infinite amounts of situations for her to meet him.

Thew/Kalel Prime double decker bus combiner. That explodes!

Never blow up the World Trade Center though. In fact, the Twin Towers are never seen during invasions on New York.

I'm not hatin' on TF4, I love most of Bay's TF movies. I'm just statin' facts is all.

Exactly.
MetalicGrunt
Well at least they won't have to re- film a whole new large chunk like Spiderman 1 back in 2001. Hell the movie studio even pulled the 1st trailer because of the helicopter in the spider web between the twin towers.
