In a perfect storm of movie casting for ambitious young acting talent, some major movies that could make (or break) the next rising star are all in a simultaneous casting process. Here’s a look at the latest developments:

Hit the jump for much more on each picture.

Heat Vision reported isabelle-cornishon the slew of lucrative roles now available for young, talented actors. Let’s start off with Transformers 4, which already has quite a line-up of possibles. Director Michael Bay is expected to begin screen tests this week for the roles of the daughter and boyfriend. Isabelle Cornish (Abbie Cornish’s younger sister, Home and Away, Puberty Blues) and Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender) are both up for the former role. [Update: Gabriella Wilde (Three Musketeers), Margaret Qualley (Andie MacDowell's daughter) are also under consideration.]

The role of race car driving boyfriend may go to Luke Grimes (Taken 2), Landon Liboiron (Terra Nova), Aussie Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening), newcomer Jack Reynor or Weeds actor Hunter Parrish. Whoever lands the part, they’re in it for the long haul because Paramount is reportedly signing the actors to strict three-picture deals. The shoot is expected to take place between April and November.

In related casting news, Neil Burger’s Divergent, adapted from the Veronica Roth novel, is also eying Reynor and Thwaites to star opposite Woodley’s character. The male lead trains and falls for the heroine in what Lionsgate is hoping becomes the next big teen sensation. No names were listed for Need for Speed‘s casting considerations.

    Isabelle and Landon for Transformers. Especially Isabelle as I’m waiting for Abbie’s little sister to make a state-side film.

  • Bay should hand over the reigns

    Bay should hand over the franchise’s reigns to Chris Nolan. Nolan already proved he can direct a Transformer’s level film with the Dark Knight Rises.

      You’re funny.

    Newcomer Aurelia Scheppers is also testing and is in the running for Transformers 4!!! She has been working steadily behind the scenes since her early teens. She was recently featured in Backstage West Magazine 9/20/12 edition (with Mindy Kaling on the cover.) She may have come to Michael Bay’s attention through this or her many projects and commercials. Possible pairing is with Liam Hemsworth.

    Mark Wahlberg’s daughter character should go to Margaret Qualley (Andie MacDowell’s daughter)
    as well as…
    the race car driving boyfriend should go to either Brenton Thwaites or Hunter Parrish.

    I haven’t been able to wrap myself around this franchise, similar to that of The Fast and Furious Franchise, but only until I saw Fast Five (good flick)… so, in respects to this article…
    I think Mark Wahlberg’s daughter character should go to Margaret Qualley (Andie MacDowell\’s daughter) as well as… the race car driving boyfriend should go to either Brenton Thwaites or Hunter Parrish.
    Just saying…
    I also hear that Nicola Peltz is in talks, they should pair her up with Jackson Rathbone (Twilight) as well, those two would be perfect.
