Mark Wahlberg was recently confirmed as the lead in Transformers 4.  We first heard Wahlberg was in talks from Twitch, so now that the site has a new Transformers 4 casting update, we’re ready to listen.  Twitch hears that Michael Bay has cast Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender) as Wahlberg’s daughter and Brenton Thwaites as Peltz’s biker boyfriend.  Both Peltz and Thwaites were on the shortlist that was reported a few weeks ago.

We don’t have many concrete details on the plot—just these character descriptions and the hints that Transformers 4 will be set in China four years after the events of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.  If this casting pans out, then Ehren Krueger (writer on the last two Transformers movies) should have everything he needs to lock in the script, at which point you won’t be able to escape Transformers updates.  The still-untitled Transformers sequel is scheduled for release on June 27, 2014.

      Whoops. Fixed the typo is fixed.

    It’s always a good sign for your franchise when you start mining the cast of an M. Night Shyamalan film.

    Michael Baaaaaaayyyyyyy!

    You just know all the people who hate TDKR and Prometheus are going to excuse their enthusiasm for Transformers 4 with, “Hey, not every movie has to be Shakespeare. I like explosions.”

    Good news, fellas! I believe “Battleship” is now available on DVD!

    That dude screams biker. Ugh. So for sure not a biker gang type biker. More like a bike club Fast and Furious type doucher. I’m sure he’s gonna ride the crotchrocket chick bike from Transformers: Prime.

    I thought Transformers 4 was suppose to be set in Cybertron?

  • ScaredForMovies

    This all just sounds wonderful. And Razalian, you’ve mistaken Cybertron with China.

    This girl did the worst acting in the Last Airbender…and that’s quite an accomplishment in a movie full of amateur grade acting.


    Bahahaa! Has nobody picked up on the fact that their surnames sound like something they would lampoon on Family Guy??

    Peltz and Thwaits, If only Thwaits first name was Cuthbert that would really have a ring to it. lol… move over Beiber, your replacements have arrived!

    Remember folks, these names will be on movie posters! I thought Hollywood had a penchant for changing actors names to sound better.

    There has to be another formula to get kids to see a TF movie! I thought the Robots where everything! Why this? oh is Michael Bay of course, Just want to see a release of the 1987 animated movie on blu, all of this pile of c rap can go away fast! I hope someday someone can do this franchise some justice, is not always about money! shhiss?!

    This time, Bay will give to T4 an indie touch.Not a single explosion. Not a single boob. It will go all dialog and profound philosophy.
    Wait!! Wahlberg playing a dialog ?
    wake up Neo…
