Star Hired for Transformers 7

Transformers 7 has its star. Deadline is reporting that Anthony Ramos (Hamilton) has been cast as the male lead in the film.  The movie, currently rumored to be called Transformers: Beast Alliance, will be directed by Steven Caple Jr. (Creed II) based on a script by Joby Harold.  Collider describes the character as "a flawed and vulnerable hero who has made mistakes in his life and is eager to redeem himself with the help of Optimus Prime."

The actor is now participating in hiring his female lead, attempting to make sure they show on screen chemistry. Those hoping to avoid the romantic component of an action film will continue to be disappointed (reason: proven to help draw woman to male centric films). Rumored names on the short list are Kiki Layne (Coming 2 America) and Dominque Fishback (The Deuce).

Another rumor is TF7 will go before cameras this summer in Canada. Still feasible but considering the actor's role for "In the Heights" musical being released on June 11 means his time in May and June will mostly be spent promoting the movie in the US and around the world, its unlikely he will be available to film then so looking at a post July 4th date if rumor proves true.
