Transformers 4 Adds Jack Reynor In A Lead Role; New Trilogy Announced

Body

4954 In addition to Mark Wahlberg, Michael Bay has added Jack Reynor to the cast of Transformers 4.

It's thought that Reynor will play the race-car-driving boyfriend of Wahlberg's daughter, a part previously rumored.

Bay let the news be known on his website and made a point of mentioning again that it's not a reboot and that this the beginning of a new Transformers trilogy.

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.
