After much reflection and soul-searching, the director of such cinematic gems as "The Island" and "Pearl Harbor" has decided to bless humanity with another Transformers movie. Entitled "The Last Knight," the film’s plot is unknown at this time – and likely unnecessary – but one tidbit about the 2017 guaranteed-blockbuster shows that Bay may be attempting to make up for his sins.
Freya, a six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, has lived in an animal shelter in Liverpool for nearly her entire life. Overlooked by over 18,000 potential owners, she was dubbed "Britain’s loneliest dog."
Bay recently stumbled upon Freya’s story on Facebook, and the director decided to give the canine a leading role in the upcoming film.
"Freya has epilepsy and has been in a shelter her whole 6 year life. We are also going to find her a home," the director tweeted.
The shelter says that the publicity has drawn attention to Freya’s case.
"We are thrilled at the opportunity of a movie deal for Freya and at such interest and support from a major film director who is also a dedicated animal advocate," a spokesperson for the Freshfields Animal Rescue Center said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "We look forward to showing the world what a wonderful and special dog Freya is.
"We have had a fantastic response to our appeal for a new home for Freya, with lots of interest shown from around the world as well as closer to home in the UK."
Bay also pledged to adopt Freya himself if the film role doesn’t find her a home.
"If not she will come to my house. Welcome to the cast Freya!" Bay tweeted.
"Transformers: The Last Knight" will begin filming in the UK this summer.
