Thanks to Fox News we have a way that you can possibly end up in the next Transformers movie! Transformers: The Last Knight will be filming in Detroit for the next 8 weeks, and extras are needed. Maryellen Aviano was actually part of an interview with Fox, announcing the call for extras. The story has been mirrored below for you to check out. You can also watch her interview by clicking on the above link to go to the original story.

(WJBK) - The Transformers are returning to Detroit this summer. The next movie in the Transformers franchise is being filmed partly in Detroit -- and the crew is looking for some local flare.

They have an open casting call for extras. Maryellen Aviano joined us in studio to tell us more about the casting call. You can watch the interview in the video player above, or get the details below.

She says those who are interested should email transformers5extras@gmail.com. Things to include in the email are a recent photograph of yourself and your stats (height, contact info, schedule, etc.) She said most extras will be for those 18 and older, but there may be some spots available for 16-18 year olds.

Extras needed for 'Transformers 5' filming in Detroit
The crew is fresh off filming in the Arizona desert, and will be in Detroit for the next eight weeks. That's the longest they'll be filming at any location for the movie.

"We're trying to hire as many local people in every capacity that we can," Aviano said. "[Director] Michael Bay loves Detroit and loves the iconic landmarks and the architecture."

She said Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhmel are back for the film, as well as Anthony Hopkins.

"It's just going to be a really great time while we're here," she said.

The fifth installment in the franchise is reportedly titled "Transformers: The Last Knight." IMDB says it's due out in June of 2017.

If I did a Transformer voice, it'd probably have to either sound like a very evil-sounding Starscream-esc voice, Soundwave, or a cowboy.

Also that thing above looks like some sort of turd made out of Batman's tumbler.

Remember last week when we posted some potential plot spoilers and you were told to take them with a grain of salt? Well, a part of those rumors appears to have gained a little more traction.

So...

The Transformers Twitter page posted a behind-the-scenes 15 second video, and within that video Mark Walhberg is shown taking a nap with Micheal bay impatiently waiting for him to wake up. But as the camera man passes by Bay, an interesting exchange takes place, where the man behind the camera says:

"Hey Bay, I got Squeaks"

and Bay responds:

"Hey, Squeaks. Wait for Mark Wahlberg to wake up."

As the rumor stated last week, there is a new character with the name "Squeaks" so is this confirmation of this part of the rumor? Check out the video on their Twitter page by clicking HERE and let us know what you think in the comments section, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries.

There's an eight second video on the Transformers Twitter with "Squeaks" getting "final touches."

Fellow Seibertronian Deadput brings us some more Transformers: The Last Knight news this fine day, with source including usual suspects Transformers Cars on Facebook, Mlive.com. The contents? Crosshairs in vehicle mode - is this confirmation to his return? - and some more shots of the drones and the Detroit location being set up. Check it all out below!

An array of giant metallic contraptions have landed at the long-vacant Packard Plant as preparations are being made for the filming of the next "Transformers" movie.

Among the crumbling concrete of the sprawling former Detroit automotive plant, scenes for the fifth Transformers movie, staring Mark Wahlberg, are beginning to take shape.

Two Chicago Transit Authority trains are positioned as if they careened off their artificial rail lines, and giant gears and machinery lie in pieces around the set.

Well, at least it's a practical set piece for the actors to interact with rather than a purely CGI creation.

I assumed when the rumor mentioned British Transformers and talk about location scouting around Stonehenge they'd be found in the UK somewhere. But it looks like Squeaks, an apparently rusty blue Vespa (makes sense), is right in Detroit.

Also there goes the theory on those being code names for familiar characters like they did in the previous movies.

EDIT: Oh Crap! It's T-Bob! M.A.S.K. crossover confirmed! (Not really.)

Ahh that's cool. I think it's pretty awesome that they actually made a model for this guy instead of entirely CGI. Looks like they used real Vespa parts too.
