Tyrese Gibson will reprise his role of Robert Epps in “Transformers: The Last Knight,” the actor announced on social media.
Gibson appeared as Epps in the first three “Transformers” movies, but was left out of 2014’s “Age of Extinction,” which focused on a character played by franchise newcomer Mark Wahlberg.
Wahlberg is also returning for “Transformers: The Last Knight,” the fifth installment in Paramount’s blockbuster franchise, co-starring Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins and Josh Duhamel. Plot details have remained under wraps, but in May, Bay shared a video on Instagram which teased the return of Megatron.
Last week, Bay introduced a new adorable character named Squeeks.
The film is currently in production and is set for a June 23, 2017 release.
Paramount had no comment on the casting — Gibson’s reps have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
