Bumblebee, Hot Rod Spotted in Transformers 5 London Set Photos
Production continues on Transformers: The Last Knight in London, and today we have new photos of some Autobots rolling out in London. Autobots such as Bumblebee and Hot Rod are seen in these new photos, along with the Decepticon Barricade and human co-star Anthony Hopkins during new scenes that are being filmed this weekend near Buckingham Palace. No details about these scenes have been released thus far, but we also have a new video with director Michael Bay
The official Twitter for the franchise posted a new video featuring director Michael Bay, who reveals that they're shooting "in front of the Queen's house," which he doesn't think a lot of productions are allowed to do. The scene in question features the exotic Lamborghini that represents the Autobot Hot Rod is seen speeding up to the Buckinham Palace entrance, at 80 miles per hour. Hopefully we'll learn more about this shoot at Buckingham Palace soon.
If that wasn't enough, we also have a video with Anthony Hopkins, who talks about his experiences on the set thus far. Unfortunately, he doesn't shed any light on plot details, which have been kept under wraps ever since filming began. He is just part of an all-star ensemble cast that includes Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci reprising their roles from 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson reprise their roles from the original Transformers trilogy, and newcomers Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael and Laura Haddock.
After Transformers 5 hits theaters on June 23, 2017, Paramount will debut a Bumblebee spin-off on June 8, 2018, followed by Transformers 6 on June 28, 2019. These movies were developed by a massive writer's room, that assembled under Akiva Goldsman. Transformers: The Last Knight writers Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan were part of this team, along with Steven S. DeKnight, Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn, Jeff Pinkner, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, Christina Hodson, Lindsey Beers and Geneva Robertson-Dorsett. Michael Bay helped oversee the writers room, along with Steven Spielberg, Hasbro's Brian Goldner and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian and Don Murphy.
Transformers 5 will put a new twist on the franchise, with the sequel recently bringing aboard Liam Garrigan as King Arthur and Santiago Cabrera as the iconic wizard Merlin. There had been rumors that this sequel would somehow connect to medieval times, with recent set photos showcasing actors in armor, riding on horseback, but we still don't have any official plot details quite yet. Take a look at the new videos and photos below from the set of Transformers: The Last Knight as production continues in London.
