A just thing to note here is that it says Dinobot stunts for a few characters on the list which could be implying the a Dinobots scene will be shot.

TF4 casting sheet confirms Dinobots, Cyclonus, Drift, Crosshairs, Hound & Human Character Names

A casting sheet has been posted to Reddit, which calls for 'Dinobot Stunt' assignments.
Also listed are various names assigned to vehicles that will be on the set including:

New Optimus
Bumblebee
Crosshairs
Drift
Hound
Lambo
Pagani
Cyclonus

The sheet also gives names to some of the human characters, including

Mark Wahlberg as Cade
Stanley Tucci as Joshua
Kelsey Grammer as Attinger
Nicola Peltz as Tessa
Jack Reynor as Shane
Sophia Myles as Darcy
Li Bingbing as Su Yueming
Titus Welliver as Savoy
TJ Miller as Lucas
James Bachman as Gill Wembley
Melanie Specht, Abigail Klein and Victoria Summer are also listed, playing executive assistants to Joshua
Ty Smith as SOG Agent #3

Is Crosshairs the Corvette? Drift the Bugatti? Cyclonus the Argosy? and does this mean that Cyclonus or Drift could be the rumoured samurai 'con looking to regain his honour? Or does Cyclonus' inclusion pave way for the arrival of Unicron?

The post can be viewed here: http://www.reddit.com/r/transformers/co ... firmation/

Other stunts listed also confirm various scenes that will feature in the film, including Bumblebee rescuing Cade (Wahlberg) from 'Joshua', A fossil find, the autobots surveying a building, Crosshairs doing a drive-by, a decepticon fighter being chased into a tunnel, and a decepticon fighter crash, among others See bottom left of sheet.

Weapon: Gattling Gun
Finally some big "Transformers 4" news! As most of you are aware "Transformers 4" is currently filming in Chicago, well it appears a Reddit user managed to get a hold of a call sheet that reveals a whole slew of character names, both human and Transformer! Spoiler warnings start here, if this call sheet is legitimate you may want to turn back here.

The sheet mentions the following Transformer names:

  • New Optimus
  • Bumblebee
  • Crosshairs
  • Drift
  • Hound
  • Lambo
  • Pagani
  • Cyclonus

As you can see the list seems to confirm the previously rumored Drift and also adds two brand new names to the mix, Crosshairs and Cyclonus.

The sheet also gives us the names of the human cast:

  • Mark Wahlberg - Cade
  • Stanley Tucci - Joshua
  • Kelsey Grammer - Attinger
  • Nicola Peltz - Tessa
  • Jack Reynor - Shane
  • Sophia Myles - Darcy
  • Li Bingbing - Su Yueming
  • TJ Miller - Lucas
  • James Bachman - Gill Wembley
  • Titus Welliver - Savoy

But wait there more! The sheet also mentions "1st Dinobot Attack" and goes on to list multiple actors assigned to Dinobot Stunts! That's right, it appears all the rumors were true, and despite director Michael Bay previously stating he did not like the idea of Dinobots, they are in the film.

The call sheet goes on to mention details regarding a couple of other scenes:

  • Joshua threatens Cade, then ridicules him an Yeager enterprises
  • Bumblebee rescues Cade
  • Attinger questions Cade
  • Darcy challenges Joshua on the fossil find
  • Fighter crashes through grating
  • Crosshairs driveby
  • Fighter dives into tunnel with fireball in pursuit
  • Autobot surveillance

Here's a mirror of the call sheet in question:

Yet again the article warns for spoilers, that are displayed in the headline!! I don't care about this movie as much as Prime, but the front-page spoilers are getting annoying.

I would not be surprised if there was 1 Dinbot, name Dinobot and its in there because Bay wants to shut fans up about the Dinobots.

Although I I enjoyed the first 3 movies, that might frustrate me a bit. I hope I am wrong.

cant wait to see the stupid way bay explains the diobots existence. Also curious if there are multiple dinobots or if theres just one & will it be called dinobot or be one of the g1 names, this is bay after all so he could do either. I know this is a long shot but i hope cyclonus doesnt get screwed up like everyone else, another fan favorite character could get ruined yet again.

Well, seeing as this is a Michael Bay Transformers movie, in all likelihood these names mean nothing, just requests from Hasbro to keep the trademarks alive for a couple more years. Also, "Lambo?" "Pagani?" Cool, one of the few things I didn't like about the last two sequels was the lack of really incredibly blatant product placement!

Whatever, man. I'm still gonna see it. :QUINT:

I think they're saving the Menasor reveal for later. 8)



Although, I gotta say, overall, the guy who leaked this sheet is a D*CK! There's no reason to leak something like this! The move is coming in less than a year. I would have preferred to be surprised by previews (no thanks to Seibertron's amazing titling staff).

PS: "But Michael Bay said there'd be no Dinobots! He said so! :-B :-B :-B "
Can some of you nerds accept that what people SAY and what people DO are two different things? I swear if I hear one more, "But Hasbro staff said...!" :BANG_HEAD:

I think Bay has Dinobots because even Bay can understand how cool Dinobots can be. OR, it's quite possible that Hasbro did indeed tell him to throw them in there, to keep copyrights and such (as another poster suggested). Either way, maybe we can all agree to stop using quotes interchangeably with facts? :roll:

OH! Yea, yea, yea I hope we gets those Dinobots. They mentioned an archeology dig so maybe they will be actual dinosaur alt modes, please? Cyclonus also awesome. Just hope the Menasor rumours are true, Stunticons are my favorite combiner.

This has been an ongoing battle between some users and Seibertron.com for the past 10 years since movie news first started appearing. The purpose of Seibertron.com is to inform our users or anything relevant to Transformers. To ensure that articles can be found via Google searches and such, we put prominent key words in our titles. We have no intentions of making Seibertron.com a spoiler free zone. One of the primary purposes of this site is to provide as much information as possible including any available spoilers that we come across. If all of the titles of our news articles were spoiler free, they'd make for some pretty boring titles to read.

I changed the title this time around but this is not standard practice here and our titles will continue to NOT be spoiler free as that hurts us tremendously with search engine optimization and getting general movie going audiences to read our articles (which far outnumber us die hard fans).

My guess is that there will be a "Dinobot" named Cyclonus, who changes from a robotic "dinosaur" into some sort of product placement item. He will be called Cyclonus because of his ability to fart.

He will also drool a lot and talk with a "funny" accent.

The SU-47 would be perfect for Cyclonus. So I now know Bay will go in the complete opposite direction, maybe a Prius or something.

Why has this been removed from front page? Did Nelson ask for it to be taken down?

And I apologize for the title in the forum, but i agree with Ryan, this is a news site after all >:oP

I have a feeling that Cyclonus will join the autobots and will be the samurai looking to regain his honour, as opposed to drift, who will probably represent the character in name only. I mean who drifts in a bugatti, of all cars.

Happened to look a little closer before the link was taken down. It lists Peter Cullen as a stunt driver. Could he be cast as not only the voice of Optimus Prime, but also his holodriver?

The irony is that this IS a site for hardcore fans. Of course, from a business point of view, I respect and understand your stance. But as an actual customer, I can interpret the same sentence as, "Look, you're poor compared to the masses of non-customers we could be shaking down!" I recall a similar statement from Hasbro; a testament to your sound business decisions. :APPLAUSE:

Nonetheless, say I DON'T want to be spoiled about the new movie: you're saying I can't really visit Seibertron until some time in Summer 2014, in order to avoid the inevitable spoilers.

Wait a second: NINTENDO! That's what your statement harkens back to (i.e. fans are nice, but look at the non-gaming market!!! :ic$: ). If I was a shareholder, I'd be quite happy with that philosophy, but alas, just a visitor. And the obnoxious (not you or Seibertron, I'm speaking generally) rabid desire for TF4 spoilers is quite detestable, IMO. SOME of us like being surprised about our movies... It's like missing the Super Bowl, and everyone won't shut up about it, so you can't (in any known dimension) actually enjoy the game AFTER it was aired. :sad:

FYI to ALL: PARAMOUNT requested this story/images be removed from the website. I saw something similar on TFORMERS.

Again, irony - visibility? Yes. To Paramount. Which is a good thing? :roll: Ah well, as Seiberton correctly stated: the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. If any of you need to NOT be spoiled.... ehhh, you're f-ed! :lol: :sad: :BANG_HEAD:
