Michael Bay–director of the anticipated action film “Transformers 4″– took to his website to announce some exciting casting news regarding the upcoming film.
According to Deadline, Bay has recruited Jack Reynor to star alongside Mark Wahlberg as they run from robots and do other cool shit that action stars do.
“Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously who does that?” Bay wrote in the blog post. “Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie What Richard Did. This kid is the real deal.”
Bay also disclosed a little bit of info about the film. “Transformers 4, is not a reboot. That word has been floating around on the net,” he said. “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.”
A new trilogy?! Transformers 5 and 6, anyone?
