With Transformers 4 filming in China, Chinese actors being hired via a reality show, and numerous Chinese landmarks being destroyed in the movie, it’s no suprise that the Asian country is playing such a prominant role in Michael Bay’s next film.
As such, and not surprisingly, Marc Ganis, president of production company Jiaflix Enterprises, said the film “has a great deal to do with China”.
“Effectively, China is a character in it,” he said. “So much of the movie takes place in China and the character [Li Bingbing] plays is a Chinese national. So it’s a very natural position for her to have.”
Transformers 4 stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and T.J. Miller. It will be released on June 27, 2014.
