Since appearing in the original Broadway cast of Hamilton, Anthony Ramos has booked a ton of high profile projects. This includes a starring role in Spike Lee’s Netflix show She’s Gotta Have It, as well as film roles like Godzilla: King of the Monsters. And according to Deadline, the actor/singer is in final negotiations to join the mysterious installment in the Transformers franchise.
While Transformers has been absent from theaters for a few years, Paramount is currently developing a few different movies. One of said movies will be directed by Creed II filmmaker Steven Caple Jr., and now it looks like Anthony Ramos may end up starring in the mysterious blockbuster. This will mark Ramos’ return to another big budget movie, and comes shortly before his starring role in In The Heights is finally released to the masses.
It’s been fascinating to see how Paramount continues to make decisions about the Transformers franchise. In addition to Steven Caple Jr.’s upcoming movie, there’s also an animated blockbuster in development. Clearly it looks like the property is going to have some major changes, which should hopefully result in revived interest in the sci-fi flicks.
