Age of Extinction
Transformers 3 Budget Hits $400M, Still Going; Hardcore Eddie Character Detailed

By bwbm on Wednesday, September 01, 2010



Lestor Speight, who stars as Hardcore Eddie alongside Tyrese Gibson (USAF Retired Master Sergeant Robert Epps) in Transformers 3, has revealed that the film has surpassed Titanic as the largest budgeted film ever, and also revealed additional information on his character.

Speaking with Movie Mikes, Mr. Speight says that Transformers 3 surpassed the $400 Million mark and is "still going north!"

In comparison, Transformers cost $150M and Revenge of the Fallen was budgeted at $300M.

Each film easily eclipsed their budgets at the box office, so it is not surprising Paramount Pictures gave Director Michael Bay more money to play with this time around.

Mr. Speight also provided additional information on his character Hardcore Eddie, which is an old friend of Epps' father.

"Robert Epps calls me in. I was in a war with his father," he says.

"I always told his dad I would look out for him and watch his back. I am doing all the heavy shooting, rocket launchers and kicking ass. Hardcore Eddie is old school soldier who has seen it all and done it all. I am just kicking ass and blowing up shit. Michael (Bay) just created such a great character."
