With pre-production and casting starting on Transformers 4, Michael Bay and his production team have made some casting rumors official. Actor Nicola Peltz has been added to the cast of Transformers 4 as the female lead. Peltz will be following in the footsteps of other Transformers’ “damsels in distresses” (not to sound too reductive) Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.


The casting update came via @S4TE – the official Twitter account for Michael Bay’s website – when a fan asked if Megan Fox would return to the Transformers series. Fox left the series after she called Michael Bay a “Nazi” and had a falling out with the director after Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in 2009. She was replaced with Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as Sam Witwicky’s (Shia LaBeouf) love interest in Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 2011. Read the Tweets below:

@S4TE also confirmed that Transformers 4 would be shot using 3D cameras. Considering that Transformers: Dark of the Moon was also shot using 3D cameras, the confirmation of Transformers 4 being in 3D was no shock, but Michael Bay is one of the few directors out there that knows how to use a 3D camera to create something spectacular. The last 45 minutes of Transformers: Dark of the Moon was the most thrilling action sequence Micheal Bay has directed yet.

Nicola Peltz will be joining Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor in Transformers 4. Peltz will be playing Wahlberg’s teenaged daughter. It is rumored Australian actor Brenton Thwaites will play her character’s love interest, but it hasn’t been made official yet.

Transformers 4 will take place four years after the events of Transformers: Dark of the Moon and will follow a new cast of characters and new Transformers. Prinicple photography will begin this summer in Michigan. Although a plot synopsis has been leaked, Paramount Pictures denies the authenticity of the film’s description.

Transformers 4 will hit theaters everywhere on June 27, 2014, in 3D (and most likely IMAX).
