Jack Reynor Officially Confirmed for Transformers 4; Second Trilogy of Movies Planned

jackfinal-web-945x1024

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.

    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.

    New trilogy, old robots. Not sounding too bad, as long as they can rectify the "goofs" from the earlier two films.

    so it is a trilogy and there will be TF5 AND tf6 and Bay will probably direct them (never a good idea to switch direxctors in the middle of a trilogy)

    Why would anyone think a movie with a big "4" in the title would be a reboot?

    Hehe, ohhh Michael, you almost make it sound like you care if your "stars" can actually act or not.

    Well maybe this time they will plant the trilogy ahead of how they intend the story to go and aw who am I kidding!

    In the sad, sad hopes that it's actually a Fantastic 4 reboot.

    Tell that to the Star Wars Original Trilogy with three different directors.

    Anyway, let's just get to filming. I need trailers already to confirm I won't see this.
