Valmont vs. Megatron!

Michael Bay has roped in John Malkovich, Ken Jeong and Frances McDormand to “Transformers 3″, the director announced via official website earlier today.

Malkovich, who had been in advanced talks to play the villain in Sony’s now-defunct “Spider-Man 4″, will play Shia LaBeouf’s “first boss” (says Deadline Hollywood Daily).

McDormand, relatively new to Blockbuster-ville, will play the National Intelligence Director.

No word on who funnyman Jeong, best known for his work in “The Hangover” and “Knocked Up”, is playing.

The flick, which will again star Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, kicks off it’s pre-shoot next month.
