‘Transformers 4’ Gets Newcomer Jack Reynor; Michael Bay Confirms It's Not a Reboot

Jack Reynor signs on for a lead role in Transformers 4 Director Michael Bay announced on his official website today that actor Jack Reynor has signed on for a lead role in Transformers 4. Take a look at the filmmaker's statement, where he clarifies that Transformers 4 is not a reboot.

"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.


The young actor's role was not specifically revealed. We reported last month that Nicola Peltz is playing the daughter of Mark Wahlberg's character, while Brenton Thwaites is playing her boyfriend. It still isn't known when production may begin on this highly-anticipated sequel.

Transformers: Age of Extinction was released June 27th, 2014.
