Actor Anthony Ramos is in talks to play the lead role in the new Transformers film. The latest film, which vibrates from Paramount, Eon and Hasbro, features cult II director Steven Capel Jr. as director, who reported Variety.
The plot is set under the curtain as the studio continues to search for the female head opposite Ramos.
In January 2020, Paramount decided to go for a soft revamp of the franchise, which has collectively grossed over US $ 4 billion at the box office.
The studio was working on two different scripts from writers James Vanderbilt and Joby Harold.
Harold’s position was chosen as the next project, and after that, Paramount began meeting with the directors to hear their visions for it.
In the end, Caple was chosen to direct the new film.
Paramount has also announced a new standalone film, which is not associated with films directed by Michael Bay or bumblebee spinoffs.
Angel Manuel Soto will direct the film with a script by Marco Ramirez.
Ramos was first seen when he portrayed Hamilton, the critically acclaimed Broadway production of Lin-Manuel Miranda. He played the dual roles of John Lawrence and Philip Hamilton.
The actor has acted in films such as A Star is Born and Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
He will next star in Miranda’s upcoming project, a adaptation of the famous musical In the Heights.
