Briefly: More Transformers 3 news is coming in, but this is not quite as much fun as Shia LaBeouf‘s comments from yesterday. But Firefly and Dollhouse fans will be happy about the fact that Alan Tudyk has now been cast in the film. His role hasn’t been revealed, but we don’t know much of anything about the plot at this point, so that’s no surprise. We do know that the film features the likes of John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and Patrick Dempsey in addition to LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Tyrese Gibson and hopefully John Turturro. [The Wrap]
Meanwhile, spy photographers continue to catch snaps of two Chevy Sparks, detailed green and orange, that are reportedly part of the production. That leads to the suspicion that Skids and Mudflap, the awful caricature Autobots, are in fact in the film, despite Bay’s insistence to the contrary. Or, since these are different versions of the cars, could they be revamped versions of the characters? Given that Michael Bay claimed that Megatron would not be in the second film before the character was a rather large part of that movie, there’s the suspicion that Bay is throwing up a smokescreen, Spy Hunter style, about the twins.
