Update: Michael Bay has updated his official website with a message that this informatin is false:

Michael Bay wrote:Actor announcement on some web sites last night about Transformer cast joining Mark are completely false.


Those of you who have been keeping up with the Transformers 4 casting news as it trickles out will likely remember the news from last month that director Michael Bay had narrowed down his list of potential young actresses and actors to play Wahlberg's daughter and her boyfriend. twitch is reporting the selections have been made and we can look forward to seeing Nicola Peltz and Brenton Thwaites in these roles. According to twitch Thwaites will play "Peltz's biker boyfriend", though initial casting reports stated the character was a race car driver from Texas.

Hmm... they aren't big names, though the girl's known from Shyamalan's The Last Airbender train wreck (she played Katara).

Guess we'll have to wait and see how they do.

Gee, more teen demographic appeal. Yay. :-|

At first I was excited. Now, a great big cloud of pessimism hovers over me. I've lost interest.

You really expected anything else? At least these two look more like high school-aged teenagers this time.

Plus, they're relatively unknowns. They have more of a clean slate to start off with than Shia did, so we'll get to see them in these roles without too much of their past work to base them on.

dont care who they are. the more i see castings for TF4 the more i dont care about the humans in it. the robots should be the star of the movies. not these idiots. probably the only thing i will care about from the new movie are the toys.

So since someone is supposed to be a racecar driver.
Will that mean the wreckers are back?

The girl is pretty but I hope her role is actually a good role not just eye candy.

And as for the male character. I really dont know.

Wow, sensible sentence, I was going to post "And let the bitching begin!"

But it already started. And please don't start with the whole "it should be about the robots not the humans". Are you suffering from memory loss? You said that with movie I, movie II, movie III.

That whine should be conserved for a new Transformers movie series with another director.

wait, I'm ranting about rants.... sigh, IRONMAN 3 in a few months!!!!

I don't want more people. I watch the transformers to root for my favorite robots. I'd be happy if they could make a real transformers movie that is about the transformers and not some person. As I child, I never watched the cartoons for the humans...

Considering how quickly the last couple of rumors concerning Transformers 4 were shot down by Michael Bay himself it should go without saying that anything we hear as this point should be taken with a grain of salt unless officially confirmed. That being said, we do have another TF4 casting rumor. ITFN is reporting that Jack Reynor has been offered the role of Mark Wahlberg's daughter's love interest. According to the report the young actor auditioned three times before being offered the role by Michael Bay himself. So far Bay as yet to confirm or deny the validity of this one.

ITFN wrote:Reynor will take over the lead role initially played by Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the original three films, which are based on the Marvel comic series. Reynor is expected to play the love interest of Mark Wahlberg’s character’s daughter.

This is the Bayverse here, guys. The humans are the focal point of these films. No matter how much we wish against it, that is the sad truth of the matter.

Do we have to like that they are? No way. But are they still what these films revolve around? Sadly yes.

These films treat the title characters not as characters but as background effects and plot devices, which is how it's been done and is likely to remain that way if these films continue to be made as they have always been.

I don't like it either, but that's the way these films are. Movies 1-3 were essentially "The Adventures of Sam Witwicky Featuring some robots called the Transformers". I expect there to be little difference with the fourth one sans Mark Walhberg's character replacing Sam as the star.

I think they should crap-can the entire project! There is absolutely no plot whatsoever that they could come up with (Primus help me if you say "What about Unicron?" I will bitch-slap you for that is the WORST idea EVER!!) and all the main characters are dead or being drastically overhauled. So honestly, a 4th movie serves no other point than to reduce once respectable fellow fans to ass-scratching, knuckle dragging neanderthals squabbling over the most inane issues possible and embarrassing themselves and the rest of the fan community in the eyes of the rest of the world. At this point, given a choice between TF4, Star Wars: Ep VII or a vasectomy without anesthesia... I'll take the vasectomy and then go see the upcoming crap-fest that will be Ep. VII. And most of that decision is based on the behavior of my fellow fans!

Every plot line in pop culture has been done to death anyway. It's not just Transformers.

all the main characters are dead or being drastically overhauled.


The only "main characters" were Sam and his two girlfriends. Optimus and Bumblebee (and sometimes Megatron) were the main 'bots throughout each movie, with The Fallen and Sentinel Prime jumping in on the sequels. Everyone else had a supporting role.

At this point, given a choice between TF4, Star Wars: Ep VII or a vasectomy without anesthesia... I'll take the vasectomy and then go see the upcoming crap-fest that will be Ep. VII.

Yea, but see, I'm not saying the G1 cartoon show was better (which it is), yet you bring up a good point. Even with the humans and nebulans, they were still pretty much background characters when compared to the Cybertronians. The nebulans even began as regular fleshlings, but then got interesting by combining them as headmasters and targetmasters. Anyway, my point is that humans are boring parts of the movie that I don't care about and shouldn't be such a large focus. Yea, obviously this isn't going to change, I wasn't expecting it. This is how I am so accurately able to predict the next movie sucking. It will focus on the humans.
Course there are numerous other reasons, but whatever.

What a conceited statement. You don't know the plot of the movie, how could you be so sure that they're unimportant? Maybe they aren't to you, but you put that remark so bluntly as if they weren't important at all.


They are unimportant. The only important thing is the giant robots pounding on one another. If the human acting is good kudos to Mr Bay, but it is just so unimportant to me.

Not concerned with the life of a human boy, and his unending luck while amidst battling robots with sharp, jagged bodies where any contact during their motion would rip his body into pieces. Formulaic, unfocused, boring... that's what the new movie will be. Flame on.
This is the Bayverse here, guys. The humans are the focal point of these films. No matter how much we wish against it, that is the sad truth of the matter.

Do we have to like that they are? No way. But are they still what these films revolve around? Sadly yes.

These films treat the title characters not as characters but as background effects and plot devices, which is how it's been done and is likely to remain that way if these films continue to be made as they have always been.

I don't like it either, but that's the way these films are. Movies 1-3 were essentially "The Adventures of Sam Witwicky Featuring some robots called the Transformers". I expect there to be little difference with the fourth one sans Mark Walhberg's character replacing Sam as the star.


Thank you. :BOOM:


Yawn.

No one wondering why the daughter has a boyfriend AND a love interest?

Because like at least 3/4 of women, she is a slut?
