Michael Bay has posted an update on his official website
, confirming that Jack Reynor (previous credits including "What Richard Did") has been cast for Transformers 4.
This confirms the rumor that surfaced in December
last year that Jack Reynor had landed the role.
On the subject of the movie's story, Michael Bay had the following comments to make:
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.
A new trilogy of movies is a bold statement (and no doubt dependent on box office profits); however this does confirm the intent for new Transformers movies to carry on being made for a good many years to come.
As always, watch this space for future developments.
