TRANSFORMERS 4 Casts Jack Reynor; New Trilogy Confirmed
After previously being rumored for a lead role in the next Transformers movie, director Michael Bay has confirmed that What Richard Did's Jack Reynor has been cast in the first film of a new trilogy.
Shortly after Michael Bay denied recent casting additions to his fourth Transformers movie, young Irish actor Jack Reynor was rumored to be offered a lead role in the upcoming film, which has Mark Wahlberg signed on to star. Now, the director has taken to his official website to confirm that Reynor has been cast in Transformers 4 alongside Wahlberg, calling him "the real deal". He also addresses comments claiming that the four-quel was a reboot of the franchise, saying that the story is a natural transition from the last movie. Finally, Bay confirms that the film, which will be very different from the last three, will be the first of a brand new trilogy.
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 then the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.
With filming beginning this May, Transformers 4 is set to hit theaters June 27th, 2014.
