Hugo Weaving to voice Megatron in Bay's Transformers?

There's a new email available on the website which can be accessed with the password NBETWO. The message alludes to actor Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings, The Matrix) being cast as the voice of the evil Decepticon leader Megatron in this summer's upcoming Transformers movie from Michael Bay, Paramount and Dreamworks.


From: S7 Department of Network Security
Subject: Counter-Information Campaign
Date Received: Mar. 23, 2007 21:14(MST)
To: Agent Alexander Powers
CC: Agent W. Snup

Operation: Hungry Dragon 2 continues. As of today, Agent H. Weaving has officially convinced S.S., M.B., R.O., AND A.K. to assign him to oversee the Megaman issue. The recording will commence immediately.

All the years of investment into Agent Weaving's public persona have finally paid off. He will monitor the campaign from the inside and report on its progress free from suspicion.

By this summer, the population will think N.B.E.S. are nothing more than a figment of someone's overactive imagination.

Our power lies in our secrecy.


Hugo Weaving first made it big with his role as Agent Smith in Warner Brother's blockbuster Matrix trilogy starring Keanu Reeves and Hugo Weaving. He also gained further popularity after playing the role of the half-elf Elrond in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. One of Weaving's most recent roles was that of V in the movie translation of the political V for Vendetta starring Weaving alongside actress Natalie Portman.

The references to Agent Weaving above is a reference to Weaving's role as Agent Smith. "Megaman" is the name the humans give the frozen Megatron in issue #2 of IDW's Transformers Movie prequel comic book series. The abbreviations from the email are as follows:

S.S. (Steven Spielberg)
M.B. (Michael Bay)
R.O. (Roberto Orci)
A.K. (Alex Kurtzman)

It is unknown at the time of this post what the "N.B.E.S." acronym stands for. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

The Hollywood Reporter has reported from the Metrodome Distribution that one of the theaters in London’s West End will be showing the 1986, Transformers: The Movie. The animated movie will run for two weeks starting May 4th. The movie is being re-launched in order to tie into the "high level of interest from fans of the Transformers brand in anticipation of this summer's Michael Bay blockbuster," Metrodome said.

And the piggybacking doesn't stop there. Metrodome also said it hopes that the theatrical run will help publicize the release of the double-disc DVD of "Transformers: The Movie -- Ultimate Edition," which hits shelves June 4.

Michael Bay has posted a small update in his forums at In this latest update Bay talks about still writing the robot voices and about some of the recent events involving the Transformers Movie. Here is what Bay posted:

"Almost a 100 days left. I guess I should start posting every week? I've been working my ass off - the cut is really coming along -the shots ---awesome. Some of the most difficult renders in ILM history. Sometimes up to 38 hours per frame. The Show West thing was fun to see the scenes play in a 1000 person house. But they just saw 25 minutes so it is hard to feel engaged because they are not seeing the full run of a movie. Harry called me to tell me how he loved it. I see all the dickwad talk back people who claim they have read a finished script. Impossible - I kept the only draft for the last two months before shooting. That's where did major retooling to the script - yes the scene beats are similar but a very different script. We are still writing the robot voices. They talk about just 20 minutes of action at the end - yeah right. This is by far the most action I have ever put into a movie - I have 12 huge set pieces. Boy I get tired of these lame cry babies on the net.
