Director Steven Caple Jr. revealed to CinePOP that the production will have action scenes shot in Machu Picchu, the so-called “lost city of the Incas,” located atop a mountain 2,400 meters above sea level in the Urubamba River Valley, Peru.
“It will be difficult to shoot there. But we’ll get there. We analyze the strategy. Not that I have to go with just a camera in hand, but we’re going to have a great action sequence there, ”said director Steven Caple Jr. (“ Creed 2 ”).
Machu Picchu was elevated to UNESCO World Heritage status in a global vote and, with the analysis of architects and archaeologists, classified Machu Picchu as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World .

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has revealed that the film’s title will be “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” (or Transformers: Rise of the Beasts).
“We wanted to give the public a lot of news. We have exhausted, I would say, the battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons. As we can find a new set of villains and priorities, saving the world is left to the Autobots and, in this case, the Maximals. Part of the new news, if you’ve seen the other movies you’ll see villains you’ve never seen before and a lot of stuff we’ve never done before. “
Anthony Ramos (‘In a New York City’) and Dominique Fishback (‘Judas and the Black Messiah’) will star in the next film in the franchise, which will have a screenplay written by Joby Harold (‘King Arthur: The Legend of the sword ‘). During an interview with Variety, Ramos was asked if he could give some advice on the film, to which he replied:
“We’ve just started preparations for the film, so hopefully I can give some details later.”
However, he said the project will bring a lot of changes to the franchise, especially on the issue of representation.
For Ramos, it’s a pride to represent the Latino community in a franchise previously reserved for whites.
“These films started with Shia LaBeouf, then Mark Wahlberg and Hailee Steinfeld. Now it’s me and Dominique Fishback, it’s very different. ‘Transformers’ has transformed and I’m so proud to be a part of it!
Finally, he praised the visionary ideas of director Steven Caple Jr. (“Creed 2”).
“Steven Caple Jr. is a visionary, I can’t wait for people to see what came out of this man’s mind and show everyone the fullness of his glory. You can’t even imagine what we’re up to.
As he said, at the moment there aren’t many details on the film, but updates should be released as soon as production begins.
Previously, Deadline reported that the studio was just waiting for a director to move the project forward, but it was not revealed when the cameras are on.
The film currently has a working title of “Transformers: Beast Alliance,” which naturally suggests that it could bring elements of the beloved Beast Wars side of the Transformers universe. The movie is set in the 1990s, it’s also around the time of Beast Wars, so the links are definitely there.
Launched in 2007, the ‘Transformers’ film saga has always had considerable box office performances, despite harsh negative reviews on most films. Directed by Michael Bay, the first five chapters grossed more than $ 4.3 billion, while the spin-off “Bumblebee”, directed by Travis Knight, got 92% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and grossed nearly $ 469 million.
