The filming for Transformers 4 is underway in Chicago, and has started with typical Michael Bay explosions. The set has been created to look like Hong Kong, continuing the story that was started in Detroit.
Also, thanks to of marcodelau of Reddit, a Transformers 4 casting sheet was discovered that reveals names assigned to vehicles that will be on set. They are: New Optimus, Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Drift, Hound, Lambo, Pagani, and Cyclonus. The sheet also gives names to some of the human characters, including: Mark Wahlberg as Cade, Stanley Tucci as Joshua, Kelsey Grammer as Attinger, Nicola Peltz as Tessa, Jack Reynor as Shane, Sophia Myles as Darcy, Li Bingbing as Su Yueming, Titus Welliver as Savoy, TJ Miller as Lucas, James Bachman as Gill Wembley, Melanie Specht, Abigail Klein and Victoria Summer are also listed, playing executive assistants to Joshua and lastly Ty Smith as SOG Agent #3.
As to which vehicle is which remains unknown, but Seibertron is thinking Crosshairs is possibly the Corvette, Drift the Bugatti, Cyclonus the Argosy. They also are thinking this means that Cyclonus or Drift could be the rumoured samurai ‘con looking to regain his honour? Or does Cyclonus’ inclusion pave way for the arrival of Unicron?
So it looks like some of the rumors that have gone around for months now are starting to look like they are true. Obviously until official word from Michael Bay or the studio confirms any of it, it is a rumor. Having the casting sheet certainly helps though. Transformers 4 is directed by Michael Bay, starring Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammar, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci and Jack Reynor, set for release on June 27, 2014. (Source: MichaelBay.com & Seibertron)
