Fellow Seibertronians, courtesy of The Wrap we learn that actress Isabela Moner is being eyed for a lead role opposite Mark Wahlberg in Paramount’s “Transformers 5”. The article, which can be found here, is also quoted below, summarizes her acting credits, and the basis of her potential character in the movie. So what do you make of this choice - if it does indeed pan out? Let us know in the comments below.

Up-and-coming actress Isabela Moner is being eyed for a lead role opposite Mark Wahlberg in Paramount’s “Transformers 5”, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

Paramount did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Michael Bay is returning to direct the action-packed sequel, which boasts the involvement of executive producer Steven Spielberg as well as a litany of writers including Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman.
Moner is poised to play the young female lead of Izabella, a street-smart tomboy who grew up an orphan and was raised in foster care. She counts a small Transformer as her only friend… until she meets Wahlberg’s heroic inventor Cade Yeager.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce “Transformers 5” with Hasbro, and Paramount will release the film on June 23, 2017. Production is slated to start this summer in Detroit.

Hopefully it would be more tastefully designed than Devs was... :-s

Yeah, very true, but I think the designs have come a ways since then. They are going for whole new styles now :MAXIMAL:

Wow, 14 year olds now? Looks like Michael Bay's pedophilia-like sexualization of young women is going down an even worse rabbit hole.

Wow that's a bit harsh don't you think >:oP also you saying the writer's have a problem as they probably wrote the part with a teenager in mind.

I smell cade getting a foster daughter in the new film. As for the other tidbit...it would be cool if it was the second coming of minicons, they'll cash in on recent trends and have it transform into a hoverboard :lol:

Its Akiva 'Batman and Robin ' that upsets me.

And are we going to get more horrible designs like Drift, Brains and Hound with their'hair'?

Also TF 4 had the worst voice cast with Drift, Crosshairs, Brains and Lockdown .

You clearly missed the part where no teenager has ever starred in any film ever, ZW.

How in the PIT does a voice cast involving Ken Watanabe, John DiMaggio, Reno Wilson, and Mark Ryan classify as the "worst"?
Also, if the criteria for bad design is hair, that means Alpha Trion, Arcee, Wreck-gar, Scourge, and Unicron all have "terrible designs" as well.

In regards to the topic, however, I love the idea. And given how he actually PARODIED his habit of sexualization with Tessa, I'm sure it'll be fine. And even if he does sexualize her, at least it won't be as bad as Kiss Players.

This is nothing new people. I think going with a younger teen is more feasible given the cheesy dialogue at times. I'd rather hear it come from a real teenager's mouth than a 20-24-year-old pretending to be a teenager. Am I wrong? :HEADHURTS:

My only hope is that we finally see the death of Bumblebee in this movie. Please spare me all the comments about how popular a character he is and Hasbro will never... . We all know he is getting his own movie anyway...why not kill him off in this one and set a new movie sometime between 2 and 3 or 4 and 5? I loved Ironhide and he got the boot post haste. TF4 would have been better with Ironhide than bringing in Hound. I loved Hound's design and Goodman rocked it don't get me wrong.

Down with Bee has been my mantra for the last 3 films...hope it comes true. I will be boycotting Bee solo film as well. ;)^

Sorry, I think bee will be with us for some time yet, especially with him being the lead in RiD. As for his solo movie it may be a prequel the the first film, before he arrives on earth but at the same time I can see it being set between 5 & 6.

So true ZeroWolf...a man can dream though. A prequel to the first film would make the most sense. We could also see a solo film between 5 and 6 as you said. I'll still boycott. I like the RID representation, but it's nice to keep the animated and film universe as separate entities.

I agree with both of these points. I thought the "hair" was done well, and the voice acting was very good. They all did a good job, and Goodman and Watanabe were awesome. Loved them both :MAXIMAL:

I hope Wheelie survived. I didn't mind him in RoTF, and there was no explanation for his disappearance. He was just gone after the pyramid scene. And why do we need a new teenager? Is Nicola Peltz still going to be cast?

Does the guy really need a second daughter? Hey, movie people, you realize you're making a movie about toys right? Howabout targeting your demographic by, you know, giving him A SON!? A tom boy isn't the same as a boy. Can't wait to see how they top the short shorts and trying to explain why the boyfriend wasn't a pedophile in the last movie. :roll:

To be fair the ages were only an issue because of where the film took place. Had it took place in the UK, there would if been no problem and no one would of batted an eyelid

She should have just been 18 and it would never have been an issue. Instead they go out of their way to make her underage and further out of their way to explain why it's OK. There's something messed up about that.
