Have the two teen leads been found for Transformers 4?

Dec. 11, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox/Rosie Huntington-Whiteley out, Nicola Peltz (THE LAST AIRBENDER) and Brenton Thwaites (BLUE LAGOON: THE AWAKENING) in alongside Mark Wahlberg?

That seems to be the rumored word out of Twitch today, something still unconfirmed by Michael Bay or Paramount (though Peltz was on the initial audition list).  But if true, the studio's planned new trilogy certainly won't be at a loss for a new set of pretty faces to plaster over everything Transformers-related. While you may not know their work now (as you probably tried to forget THE LAST AIRBENDER), Peltz has "Bates Motel" coming up on the horizon while Thwaites stars alongside Angelina Jolie in MALEFICENT.  Though Thwaites' credit probably won't help initiate him into the greater movie-goer's awareness all that much as the fairy tale update arrives in theaters just three months before the June 27th, 2014 date for TRANSFORMERS 4.  Insofar as (albeit limited) character description goes, Peltz would "play Wahlberg's daughter in the film while the Australian Thwaites [would] play Peltz's biker boyfriend."  Oh the comedic possibilities, especially with Marky Mark's "grumpy father" quips and stares.  I just die for joy. 

We'll let you know if and when this information is substantiated or denied by Bay and Paramount.  In the meantime, what are your feelings on the direction of the Transformers franchise these days - are they the same? Or have they changed at all, and if so, from what to what?

Mark Wahlberg to the new male lead - "So you ride bike, huh? What's that all about?". I can only hope that the new male lead will be better than Shia LaBeouf. As for extra tidbit, M.A.S.K. I'm a die-hard M.A.S.K. fan. If they can make a big rig transform into Optimus Prime and back, how hard can it be to make a flying Camaro?

When they cast a big A-list star as the lead it pretty much confirmed this'll just be same-old same-old as far as the Transformers' movie formula goes. The autobots and decepticons won't register as anything more than CGI rendered background noise or the source of a slow motion explosion as an attractive actor or actress moves through the foreground. The plot will focus on some bullshit budding romance while Marky-Mark and Optimus trade one liners. All of the transformers will be regulated

All of the transformers will be regulated to side characters with about as much personality as the chair I'm sitting on. Pass.

Will the plot actually feature the Transformers this time?

Or more formulaic nonsense focused on a nerd getting the girl with action in the background?

To be honest...

I think I'm over the whole transformers thing, these movies are made for all the wrong reasons: toys equal more money. its a shame that the medium of film has turned into a propaganda for products. I'm sorry Bay, but you need to stop shoving transformers down everyone's throat.

teenagers equals dumb humor again

If wahlberg is cast while the are at it also cast the rock as a bad ass general or something, please no teenagers again.

The rock looks like he can take on a decepticon on his own, maybe like the headmasters take control of an autobot and create destruction

This whole thing reminds me of the Floyd Gondolli scene in Boogie Nights.

I would love to see an adaption of the board game Risk. A world at war movie like that could be awesome.

With the new approach, I just hope the new film will bring something new besides robots taking a long time to transform. On second thought, I like that. But anyway, I really hope they bring something new, since this is going to be made.
