Age of Extinction
Transformers 4 - Exclusive Names Hot Young Actors Vying for Leads in Next Three Movies

By Jack on Thursday, November 15, 2012

A new exclusive with Hollywood Reporter names names Micheal bay is testing for TF4. Following the announcement of Mark Whalberg, is quite a few new young star names making the rounds in recent movies and television. Names dropped vying for the female lead include Isabelle Cornish, Gabriella Wilde, Margaret Quallay and Nicola Peltz. They have also named five vying for the young male role including Luke Grimes, Landon Liboiron, Brenton Thwaites, Jack Reynor, and Hunter Parrish. The article also reveals story development is focused on the next three movies.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Transformers 4 has a story that centers on Wahlberg's character and his daughter. In addition, the daughter’s boyfriend, a race car driver, is the third lead in the film.

Testing for the daughter and boyfriend roles is set for this week. Among those vying for the female role are Isabelle Cornish, sister of Australian actress Abbie Cornish (Limitless); Nicola Peltz, who appeared in M. Night Shyamalan’s Paramount movie The Last Airbender and has a part in A&E’s Bates Motel; Margaret Quallay, the daughter of actress Andie Macdowell; and Gabriella Wilde, who is in the new Carrie movie.

There are five young men testing: Luke Grimes, who appeared on ABC's Brothers & Sisters and is in Taken 2; Landon Liboiron, who co-starred on Fox's Terra Nova and will be seen in the upcoming Netflix series Hemlock Grove; Australian Brenton Thwaites, who starred in the telefilm Blue Lagoon: The Awakening; relative newcomer Jack Reynor; and Weeds co-star Hunter Parrish.

The first thing everyone will notice is these actors are young and I think it is for a good reason. These are the faces we are going to see in the next THREE Transformers movies. That's right according to Hollywood Reporter, Paramount is signing these pups to three year contracts.
Sources say Paramount is signing actors to strict three-picture deals, but no one is balking because the chance to be the next Shia LaBeouf is seen as a huge opportunity.

IF this is list is for real, chances are two of these actors will be the next "young" leads judging from how Bay as worked in the past. What is your take on these new faces coming to the franchise? Share your comments below.

Let me guess, these "stars" will get more screen time then Optimus Prime and the rest of the Autobots.

What remake, and know for a fact that this one person is truly box-office. Obey me, Michael.

In a keynote at MIP Junior 2015, Hasbro's Stephen Davis touched on many topics related to the company's media franchises. In the process of answering questions, he revealed that the recently concluded writers room did not just plan Transformers 5, but that they worked to plot Transformers movies for the next ten years, which he suggests will take the property through an eighth film. He also specifically mentions Michael Bay's involvement once again, to no one's particular surprise. Video of the event has been posted to Youtube, so click through to have a look!
Today Deadline is reporting that TJ Fixman, known perhaps best to this audience For his contributions to the Ratchet & Clank series, has been hired in to Hasbro Studios as a creative consultant. Fixman's role will be to work with the existing media producers to help develop the fiction and media sides of the major brands, including Transformers. It sounds like Hasbro Studios is making a serious effort to up their media game, and only time will tell what influence will be seen from this latest addition.
Thanks to Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook, we have some nice photos of the Platinum G1 Dinobots. These are the Generations Series AOE Dinobots in classic colors and with G1-based robot heads, which for better or worse are probably the nearest we're going to get to true Classics Dinobots anywhere in the foreseeable future. Fortunately on that front, these come off looking quite nice with these decos and their retooling. Click through to check out the photos!
Hold up before you sign that check and buy a used car, because there's a statue of a robot you may want to think about first! Prime 1 Studio has posted an extensive image gallery of their elaborate Museum Masterline Transformers Galvatron statue, and it looks pretty impressive! (As it should for an SRP of $1,899 USD!) The Exclusive edition - limited to 888 pieces where the Standard run is 1,000 - includes Megatron's severed head. Keep reading to see!
In a message posted just a short time ago to michaelbay.com and his own Twitter account, Michael Bay states that as of right now he has not officially joined the production of the next Transformers movie. In the very brief and to-the-point statement, Bay notes that he has taken at least one meeting already and that things are being discussed. However, given Bay's track record, we don't expect to see Transformers 5 with someone else ultimately in the director's chair. Stay tuned here for more updates!
