The General Motors Autobots are calling in reinforcements for the third installment of the Transformers franchise… from Italy. That’s right, the newest Autobot won’t be from a far-off galaxy, but from Italy – Maranello to be specific.
Director Michael Bay has confirmed on his personal blog that a Ferrari 458 Italia will play the role of a yet-unnamed good guy.
Bay had a few more details about the upcoming movie, which starts filming soon. Shooting will take place in LA, Chicago, Washington DC, Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow, and China. As for the cast, it will include Frances McDormand, John Malkovich and Ken Jeong – known for his work in the Hangover and as Senor Chang from the TV show Community.
There’s still no word on if a Gallardo has joined the Decepticons.
