Considering the plot for Transformers: The Last Knight is still under lock and key, Anthony Hopkins role is yet to be elaborated on, but from initial reports, his part will be a substantial one.
Since the first installment hit cinemas back in 2007, it’s grossed over $3.5 billion worldwide – no wonder Hollywood’s elite are eager to join the Transformers family, with recent rumours suggesting that previous alumni Tyrese Gibson, Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox are all in contention to reprise their roles for the fifth installment that could be Michael Bay‘s last behind the helm.
Transformers: The Last Knight hits cinemas worldwide from June 2017.
