‘Transformers’ taps Voight

Jon Voight has joined the cast of Michael Bay’s big-budget actioner “The Transformers: The Movie.”

The DreamWorks/Paramount live-action production starts lensing later this month, with release scheduled for July 4, 2007. Voight is the latest actor confirmed by the studio in a cast that has received a lot of attention online. While a casting list recently leaked onto the Internet, many of the rumored names are not likely to end up in the film. Budgeted well north of $100 million, “Transformers” is based on the comicbook, cartoon and Hasbro toy line hugely popular in the 1980s. Story centers on the central saga of the Autobots vs. the Decepticons.
