John Malkovich happy with Transformers producers

July 15th, 2010

John Malkovich is glad to be working with "hands-on" producers on 'Transformers 3'.

The 53-year-old actor - who plays lead character Sam Witwicky's (Shia LaBeouf) boss in the action film - claims few producers are as good at getting "dirty" as those involved with the third instalment of the movie franchise.

He said: "Lorenzo and Mark at Summit are producing. They approached me about it. I'd seen the first one, which I liked and thought it was funny. I like working with them very much. They're very good producers, they're very hands-on, always around, really get their hands dirty which is not so normal."

The Oscar-nominated star also admits he is a big fan of popcorn movies, but rarely gets the time to see films in a cinema.

He told Collider.com: "I was never a fanatical movie person. There are many popular films I absolutely love like anyone else. Having said that, I don't have time to go to the movies very much. I work a lot of different things, I'm always busy. But I'm always happy to see a popular movie."

'Transformers 3' - which saw Megan Fox be replaced by British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as Mikaela Banes - is currently filming ahead of a planned release on July 1, 2011.
