TRANSFORMERS 7 Adds SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE And DEXTER Star Luna Lauren Velez (Exclusive)

Talking to us about her new movie Rogue Hostage, Luna Lauren Velez reveals that she has a key role in Steven Caple Jr.'s upcoming Transformers movie starring Anthony Ramos. Find out who she plays here...

There are a few Transformers movies currently in the works at Paramount Pictures, but one of the most exciting is heading our way from Joby Harold (Army of the Dead) and Steven Caple Jr. (Creed II).

In The Heights and Hamilton star Anthony Ramos was recently added to the seventh instalment in the long-running franchise as a character Collider has reported will be "a flawed and vulnerable hero who has made mistakes in his life and is eager to redeem himself with the help of Optimus Prime."

Now, we know who's playing his mom!

Talking to us about her new movie Rogue Hostage (which is now available to watch in select theaters and On Demand after being released on June 11), star Luna Lauren Velez (Dexter, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) confirmed that she recently boarded the cast of the seventh Transformers movie. 

"I'm doing Transformers 7 which I'm very excited about," Velez told us earlier today. "I play Anthony Ramos' mom in that film, so there's some exciting stuff coming up." 

When we put it to her that it must be incredibly exciting to board a big budget franchise like Transformers, she added: "It really is. I have to confess that I haven't seen any of the films, so to come in a project like this at this moment was really great. I'm excited about that. It's going to be fun stuff."

We don't have a release date for Transformers 7 yet, but it's clearly putting together a fantastic cast. Production is expected to take place in Montreal, and Ramos has previously confirmed his involvement. We'll bring our full interview with Luna to you soon, including some intel on what Rio Morales will be getting up to in the highly anticipated Into the Spider-Verse sequel.
