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.

Cinematic Universes are a Thing right now, with Marvel and Star Wars leading the way. Now, according to Deadline, Paramount is looking at their biggest movie property with an eye towards more varied (and frequent) releases. To that end they're enlisting writer Akiva Goldsman, whose credits range from the drama A Beautiful Mind to the well-received TV series Fringe ...to Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. This should be interesting. The story also hints that Michael Bay may unsurprisingly be returning for Transformers 5 after his current movie project - or at least that TF5 won't go ahead until that project is complete.

Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has posted images of the upcoming Hybrid Metal Figuration Age of Extinction Bumblebee from Herocross, a large figure featuring (as the name implies) diecast metal in its construction.

ToysRUs Japan has posted new images of Black Knight Optimus Prime!

Fans in America are quick to forget about those Bayformers robots. However, in Shanghai a Hunan father and son team have turned away from farming vegetables to the much more profitable endeavor of building Transformers robots statues out of car parts. According to a report on Shanghaist, they are taking in 1 million yuan ~ $160,00 usd each year.
Thanks to 2005 for pointing this out! Yexel's Toy Museum in Las Piñas, Phillipines houses an impressive life-size (1:1) scale bust of movie Optimus Prime!
