Michael Bay just announced new casting for Transformers 4 on his website. “I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg,” Bay wrote. “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,” Bay added, explaining that the rumor has been floating around on the net. “This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago,” Bay writes. “The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast. This Transformers will feel very different then the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.”
