Michael Bay announced on his website on Tuesday  that he has cast Reynor in the upcoming Transformers 4.
“I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg,” said Bay. “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.”
Bay went on to add: “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.”
Paramount holds worldwide rights.
