Seibertronian moderator Rodimus Prime has kept an eye out for Transformers: The Last Knight news, and found some over on ComingSoon.net - it appears that initial photography has started in Cuba, as we reported would happen not long ago! Find out more here, and below, where we've included Michael Bay's shot of a lime green car - a new Transformer, or just something lying around the location?

Transformers News: Transformers: The Last Knight Starts Filming in Cuba


Production has begun on the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight and they’ve set up shop in an unlikely place: Cuba! Director Michael Bay made the announcement on his Instagram page, noting they were only the second American production to be filming in Cuba (following the upcoming Fast 8 ).

The Transformers: The Last Knight cast includes the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as newcomer Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show, Neighbors) is also set to play an unspecified leading role. Josh Duhamel will also reprise his role of Lieutenant Colonel Lennox from the first three films.

Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to come stateside on June 6 in Detroit, where Transformers: Age of Extinction was also shot.

Michael Bay returns to the director’s chair for the film, which is set to be written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the sequel.

Combined, the previous four Transformers films have brought in over $3.7 billion at the global box office with 2014’s Age of Extinction the second-highest grossing in the series. Current plans call for Transformers: The Last Knight to be released on June 23, 2017. It will be followed by a Bumblebee spin-off film in 2018 before Transformers 6 arrives in 2019.

Can't see a faction symbol but that does look like the Chevrolet badge on the front, so I'd say there's at least a fair chance of it being a new bot

Does anyone else weirdly get a Kup feeling from it? It's old-timey, it's a shade of green, it has that taller on the front and shorter at the longer back thing going on...

You do know most movie transformers don't have faction symbols in alt mode right?

They're never plastered on, but I could swear that there's often a subtle symbol either somewhere on the bonnet or the radiator, similar to where you might find the manufacturer's badge

I'm going to say it's just a joyrider, not an actual bot.

it'd be cool if it was though :MAXIMAL:

I am calling that it's gonna be Wasp or a similar Decepticon, if that car's even a Transformer.

The only transformers to retain their original colours in the movies are Optimus, Bumblebee, Hound and Megatron and Megatron is only loosely based on the G1 colours.


So it could be anyone hell it could be Blurr for all we know.

...THAT car being Blurr? Nah. Nascar is the better option for him. :-P

Hmm Idk. It reminds me a lot of Cybertron Downshift for some reason.

They could always add something like that via CGI in post production.

And Brawl, one-third of Arcee, another one-third of Arcee named Chromia, The Fallen, Ravage, Long Haul (debatable), Scrapmetal (there was a yellow/black version), Topspin, Shockwave (debatable), and (sorta) the Dinobots (they were at least largely gray in the movie).

Shockwave only really kept his colouring in the toys.

Yeah, it's debatable with him. Some DOTM imagery gives him more of a purple hue while other imagery of him doesn't.

I'll be shocked if any Transformer appearing in Cuba isn't shown with a cigar and woven fedora because Bay loves stereotypes.

He actually looks purple to me. Maybe it's just because purple stands out to me more since it's my favorite color.

You people really have ridiculous assumptions when it comes to Bay's decisions.


You would probably excuse idw for Kup's cigar.

Thanks to Observer.com we bring to you an interview with Josh Duhamal, also known as William Lennox in the Transformers Live Action Movies. The full interview can be found by clicking the link above, but we bring to you a section regarding Transformers: The Last Knight, which includes him talking about filming that occurred in El Mirage, California. He also talked a little bit about Bay's sets. Check out the conversation below.

Josh Duhamel wrote:At the top of his work docket is, of course, his role as Lt. Colonel William Lennox in Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight. The day before we spoke, Mr. Duhamel was stationed to film his scenes 70 miles outside of Los Angeles in El Mirage, California. “I had never been there and it’s a trip,” he said of the far flung locale. “It’s this giant, flat lakebed with 40 MPH winds that didn’t stop all day, but Michael [Bay]’s set is unlike any other set. He has all of the gadgets and the coolest stuff, and the energy of that set is just really – well, it’s a spectacle, and it’s really changed my career. It’s helped me to pursue other little creative things. I love the big Transformer movies, but I also love these passion projects.”
