Jack - Tuesday, January 08, 2013
It appears the news leaked by the Irish Film & Television Network about Irish actor Jack Reynor getting the part in Transformers 4 film is true! According Bay's own site, he has offered the role himself to Reynor after being extremely impressed with the actor who beat out five other contenders for the lead role playing along side actor Mark Wahlberg. Additionally, Bay mentions Chicago, hinting at shooting in this summer. Read more about Transformers 4 and Reynor from Micheal Bay below.
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.
