TRANSFORMERS: Steven Caple Jr.'s Movie Casts HAMILTON And IN THE HEIGHTS Star Anthony Ramos In Lead Role

Steven Caple Jr.'s Transformers movie just made a big casting addition, with Anthony Ramos (Hamilton) boarding the project in a major lead role. Find out everything we know so far on this one right here!

We recently learned that a new Transformers movie is on the way from writer Marco Ramirez (The Defenders) and director Angel Manuel Soto (Charm City Kings). That's not the only one we're getting, though, because Creed II director Steven Caple Jr. and John Wick: Chapter 2 writer Joby Harold have their own robots in disguise adventure in the works.

That project has taken a big step forward today with the news (via The Hollywood Reporter) that In the Heights and Hamilton star Anthony Ramos is set to join the movie. 

We don't have any plot details to share on this one, but testing is said to be underway for a female lead.

Ramos' star is on the rise. His breakout role came on stage in Hamilton (which received an overwhelmingly positive response when it hit Disney+), and his film and TV credits include She's Gotta Have It and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. There's also a huge amount of excitement surrounding In The Heights.

In moving on from Michael Bay's vision for Transformers, it seems Paramount Pictures is looking to take the franchise in a fresh direction. That hopefully means exploring different settings and time periods, as Bumblebee definitely benefitted from taking that Autobot to an unfamiliar setting. 

We'll hopefully have more to share on this one soon, but it's definitely refreshing to see Paramount turn to some diverse voices in order to tell more of these Transformers stories.
