Like it or not there’s another Micheal Bay Transformers movie in the production pipeline. Principal photography on the fourth Transformers film is set to start this Thursday. Paramount has released a couple of new images of two new Autobots, don’t get to excited though, it’s just their robots in disguise look.
First up is the 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse worth more than a whopping $2.4 million! The character name is most likely Drift.
I guessing this beauty will have its own computerized stunt double as well as on set security. A much cheaper car was stolen off the Captain America set after all, and don’t forget the last Transformers movie had police cars crashing the set and damaging Bumblebee.
The second is a special race-inspired C7 Corvette Stingray, based on Chevrolet’s upcoming 2014 production car. Slingshot is thought to be the character name. You know Chevy is going to cross market the heck out of this movie and new car.
Those are two sweet looking cars, and just what we’ve come to expect from Bay’s Transformers franchise. The only question left is, “What horribly racist and demeaning accents will the two new characters use?”
Lastly, Bay has given the world its first look at the updated look of one Optimus Prime in truck form, via his own website, accompanied by the following description: “The completely upgraded, custom-built Optimus Prime from Western Star (a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America).” Welcome to Pimp My Transformer on MTV.
In related news, The Wrap is reporting that TJ Miller (Pictured above) has been cast in the film as the blue-collared comic relief mechanic and friend to Mark Wahlberg’s character, I’m sure he’ll be saying , “Hi to his mother.” for him.
