Up-and-coming Irish actor Jack Reynor has scored a leading role in the next year’s Transformers instalment. Director Michael Bay issued the following statement to announce it, which also includes some teeny-tiny plot details about the flick…
“I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg. Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously who does that? Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie WHAT RICHARD DID. This kid is the real deal.
Transformers 4, is not a reboot. That word has been floating around on the net.
This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago. The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast. This Transformers will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.”
Aside from Reynor and Whalberg, no other cast members have been officially announced, but Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender) is heavily rumoured to playing the daughter of the latter, with ex-Home and Away actor Brenton Thwaites as her boyfriend. We await their confirmation with baited breath...
TRANSFORMERS 4 is released in the UK June 27th 2014.
