The Chevrolet Camaro Concept will star in the forthcoming "Transformers" movie, which is due for release on July 4th, 2007 (07-04-07). The film -- which was first announced last year -- is a collaboration between Paramount, DreamWorks, and Hasbro. Apparently, "Bumblebee" is going to start out as a 1970s Camaro, and then be rebuilt as a 2008/2009 Camaro. Meanwhile, "Starscream" is going to be an F-22 Raptor, and "Optimus Prime" is going to be a fire truck. Judging by the license plate on the new Camaro, tuner Saleen also has involvement with the project. A Saleen Mustang police car will also appear in the film. Full image gallery after the jump...
