By BEN F. SILVERIO
After many years of thanklessly being a badass, Michelle Yeoh is finally getting the recognition that she deserves as a bonafide movie star. Her upcoming schedule already includes high-profile projects such as "The Witcher: Blood Origin" for Netflix, "American Born Chinese" at Disney+, and the "Avatar" sequel, and now she has officially joined the cast of "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts."
In addition to Yeoh and the previously announced cast members that include Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, and Ron Perlman, filmmaker Steven Caple Jr. has also added "Saturday Night Live" alum and "King of Staten Island" star Pete Davidson to the mix. He will voice the Terrorcon named Mirage.
The film is said to be more of a live-action adaptation of the fan-favorite series "Transformers: Beast Wars" and will start a new trilogy of "Transformers" movies produced by Michael Bay. "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts" premieres in theaters on June 9, 2023.
