Transformers 7 - Production Look to Cast New Female Lead Like Tessa Thompson?

Entertainment news site Full Circle have posted an update on Transformers 7 following the sources that gave up the "Transformers: Beast Alliance" title and timeline. They have learned the production is looking to cast a new female lead role similar to Tessa Thompson, who also played in Creed II under the direction of Steven Caple Jr.



Paramount and Hasbro are looking to reignite the Transformers franchise with a brand new installment. And now, according to insider Daniel Richtman, they are looking to cast a Tessa Thompson type actress to lead the film.

Now Richtman has revealed that the studio is looking for an actress like Thompson for one of the two leads. Interestingly, the film isn’t looking to cast Thompson herself instead opting for someone different. Some potential actresses that could fill this role could be Ruth Negga, Jurnee Smollett, or Zoë Kravitz. Details on the role are currently unknown, but fans should expect further updates as production on the film continues.

I was too young to be super into the G1 designs but I do like how similar this OP looks. The G1 designs aren't my favorite but I still think they're cool. It also gives me Transformers Prime vibes and since that's the cartoon I grew up with (I think Transformers Animated slipped past me) and my favorite, that's an instant plus for me!

I like the designs of Transformers prime. I think it was an excellent merger between the Michael Bay designs and Transformers animated. I'm not a huge fan of overly technical designs. It's almost like they're naked with car parts on top of their body. I don't like that because it makes me feel like in a fight, they're completely fragile and exposed.

This model seems better than the Bumblebee Optimus Prime. Anyone else? Please post your thoughts!

I don't agree with this. This looks like the G1 toy combined with the first Michael Bay Prime. I would have to get used to this like I did at the Bay movies version.

Hey I mean Bay brought us the first three movies and did what he had to do but...I look forward to seeing what this new guy will bring to the table. Guess I need to actually watch Bumblebee first though?

I'm glad, I'll leave room in my imagination for this one being a really killer film. First Bay movie wasn't too "true" to the original content/ characters, obviously, but struck a great chord with me and my friends and family for being very funny and having some great action scenes. Haven't seen Bumblebee but it seems to have won back over the audience that saw the first one, so I hope they continue doing well with these. The live action films add something to Transformers that the other media doesn't, even if the "true" fans don't like it (no disrespect to the "true" fans, of course).
