The Transformers 4 is doing a little transforming of its own. Its getting a new cast, a makeover for its main Autobot, and two sexy, exotic new stars.
The new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse will join the Autobots for the movie, slated to open June 27, 2014, according to photos posted to the official Transformers Facebook fan page.
The Veyron is a luscious two-tone black and baby blue, the Stingray a neon-lime green with a race-spec rear wing (which was probably added for transformability), Carbuzz reports.
No word yet on which robots the newbies will play, but it hardly matters: it’s going to be thrilling to watch them transform.
And because even transforming alien robots need a makeover once in a while, the Autobots’ earnest leader is getting more than just a tune-up for the new movie, USA Today reports.
The new film, slated to open June 27, 2014, features an upgraded, custom-built Western Star truck as Optimus’ vehicle form. Prime was a Peterbilt Model-379 for the last film, 2011′s Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
The humans will also look a little different this time around, too: Transformers 4 replaces previous lead Shia LaBeouf with Mark Wahlberg, and he’ll be part of a cast that includes Kelsey Grammer, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Jack Reynor, Sophia Myles, TJ Miller and Chinese actress Li Bingbing.
