The Movie Reporter aka IESB.net has posted a statement on their site regarding Frank Welker. According to their article, several sources have confirmed to them that Frank Welker is only days away to officially signing on to the Transformers Movie and reprise his role as the voice of the Decepticon leader Megatron.

"One of our sources tells the IESB that Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg never expected the legions of Transformers fans to rally behind both Frank and Peter the way they have, fans have been vocal and their message went all the way to the top. We should expect an official announcement very soon".

For the moment we will view this as a rumor, until more solid evidence present themselves. We will keep you updated. It should be noted that The Movie Reporter does have a pretty good track record on these types of things.

Update:
The article has been updated with a rather interesting tidbit.

"We just received a very interesting tidbit of information, while I stand behind my studio sources that claim that Frank Welker will indeed be Megatron, another reliable studio source is telling me that as of two weeks ago, Hugo Weaving was also a leading contender for the role of Megatron. Frank Welker or Hugo Weaving? Hmm, something to think about".
