Roles for TF Movie Announced

LOS ANGELES -- The Transformers, those familiar shape-changing robot toys from the 1980's, are preparing for their first live-action feature film. The highly anticipated movie is scheduled for a theatrical release of summer 2006, marking the Transformers' first return to the silver screen in almost two decades.

While Hasbro Properties Group retains creative control over the license, they have granted producers Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto a wide berth in presenting their vision of the popular robots in disguise. "The movie is going to break lots of new ground, in terms of what we can do with the characters and settings," says DeSanto. "We definitely plan on keeping true to the original vision of TRANSFORMERS while making it bigger, better, and more action packed than ever before."

Voice casting has begun for the stars of the film, which include Optimus Prime, commander of the Autobots who transforms into a tractor trailer truck, and his arch-enemy Megatron, who leads the Decepticons. The natural choices for the lead roles would be Garry Chalk and David Kaye, who have lent their voices to the characters in three separate Transformers series, and currently perform the roles on the televised TRANSFORMERS ARMADA and TRANSFORMERS ENERGON.

Principal casting has also begun for the human characters, who will co-star alongside the digitally-animated robots.

"The potential to promote TRANSFORMERS in a live action setting is enormous," explains Jane Ritson-Parsons, president of Hasbro Properties Group. "Our human actors will have a real synergy with the TRANSFORMERS that was never possible before."

Tony Michael Donnelley plays Spike, a human who befriends the Autobots and plays a key role in their adaptation to their new Earth vehicle forms. Benjamin Hendrickson plays the role of Sparkplug, father to Spike and a skilled mechanic--just the sort of friend an army of mechanical beings might need. Jamie Dudney plays Carly, girlfriend to Spike.

The Autobots aren't the only ones who will be making friends on Earth, however. Also joining the cast is veteran actor Ray MacDonald, who plays the malevolent scientist Doctor Arkeville.

UPDATE: We've been reminded that the figures in this leaked image from Weibo are the Titan Guardians sofubi (Soft Vinyl)-style figures. The figures shown were SDCC 2014 exclusives, and the purple exposed leg is a match for Beast Hunters Shockwave. So, does this "leak" actually mean anything? Who knows, but keep reading to see the image.
