It was recently confirmed that Irish actor Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) would star opposite Mark Wahlberg (Broken City) in Michael Bay's fourth Transformers film, which the director calls the start of a new trilogy in the multi-billion dollar franchise. Speaking with BANG Showbiz at the London Critics Circle Film Awards, Reynor confirms that he is bulking up for Transformers 4. "I'm training very intensely at the moment. I'm going to keep that up until we shoot. I'm going to do some different courses, some different things I need to pick up for the film. My character seems to be a race car driver so I'm going to be doing a couple of driving courses and getting out on the track." He also briefly comments on his audition process and how he nabbed the coveted role. "It was after a film I was doing, 'The Delivery Man', with Dreamworks. I went through quite a rigorous audition process out in L.A., and after a certain amount of auditions and meetings with different executives, I managed to pull it off."

Concerning Wahlberg, Reynor says that he hasn't met him yet, but he's excited. "I haven't met him before, but I'm really excited. He's one of my favourite actors. I just think he's brilliant. I have a huge amount of respect for him as an actor so I can't wait to get on set with him." He also has this to say about director Michael Bay. "I think Michael Bay has his ideas about it and I'm going to go along with him. He seems to know what he's doing."

With production commencing this May, Transformers 4 is set to hit theaters June 27th, 2014.

Transformers is such a great series. Just fun explosions and good humor. At least it's not some dead serious overrated trilogy like the uh *cough* Dark Knight Trilogy.

People love to hate these films. They're good fun. If your looking for something like The Dark Knight your an idiot. You go watch these movies to see some awesome special effects and cool looking robots beat the living [frick] out of each other. Bay knows what he's doing.

ForeverPowerful is correct. I love seeing people look for oscar worthiness from a movie about giant robots fighting. Go see it for what it is and stop complaining.
