Luna Lauren Velez Joins Cast of Transformers 7

Screenrant was first to find out that Luna Lauren Velez (Shaft, MacGyver, Dexter, its a long list) has joined the cast of Transformers 7 as the mother of Anthony Ramos' character.  The site didn't indicate their source but likely it was her own Instagram where she posted last week "When your “movie son” is on the cover on the NYT’s Arts and Leisure section." Filming for the movie is rumored to start July 4th in Montreal, Canada and set in 1994. Currently no known details on the story or characters.

Transformers 7 Begin Production July 4 in Montreal, Film Set in 1992?

A leak of a potential extras casting call notice to provides a filming location and possible time frame of Transformers 7. The "Figuration Memo" (never heard that phrase before) is seeking extras to film on July 4, 7, 12, and 13 in Montreal, Canada who are willing to wear 1992 clothing and have hair shaved to match as necessary.

If the film is set in 1992, than it would make it a likely sequel to Bumblebee movie rather than a continuation or reset of the Bay films. Depending on the story, it could be a sequel only in how it lands on the timeline, doesn't necessary mean its a continuation or in relation to that story or anything in the Bayverse. It would be easy to have it stand as its own film to be inserted or ignored in continuity based on future films as Hasbro sees fit simply by character choices and not making any references to any previous film.

To the left is the image posted by the site, below is the google translate of its text. E77 might be the production code of the film. 
Figuration E77 | Hello, 

We are looking for extras for E77 for several dates for different things.

***** We are in 1992, doc very possible that you are asked to change or shave your facial hair with a few exceptions, but you should be prepared to do so just in case.

shooting date July 4 Montreal
shooting date July 7 Montreal
