"Transformers 4" Starts Filming This Summer

For all you regular M3 readers, you already know I am a nerd. For those who are new, this post is going to let the cat out the bag. I screamed like a school girl when I found out that there is going to be a new Transformers movie. My hands were shaking with happiness. When the first live action Transformer movie was announced in 2007, I was skeptical. Being a gigantic fan of the cartoon for years and seeing so many remakes, making a live action Transformers movies seemed unlikely. Trying to convert all the action and movement of the cartoon to live action would take a well-dedicated team of designers, writers, actors and most importantly, a director. But luckily, they found a team that brought Transformers to a whole new level of awesomeness and nerdiness.

Transformers 4 Storyline 

As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues.

Jack Reynor little-known Irish actor Jack Reynor will be joining the mayhem in the fourth installment of the extremely successful franchise. Although his role has not yet been officially revealed, he is assumed to be playing the co-leading role as the boyfriend to the daughter of Wahlberg's character. IN other words, it's a huge break for the young actor.

Nicola Peltz Amidst all that we’ll meet Wahlberg’s character, his daughter (Peltz) and her racer boyfriend (Reynor). No idea yet on whether Thwaites will score a part or was even in final contention, but Bay and co. will be headed to Detroit to shoot in the spring ready for a June 27, 2014 release date. We just hope Peltz, who has been seen in Deck The Halls and The Last Airbender, along with episodes of the new Bates Motel TV drama, has her Bayhem insurance up to date. She’ll need it.
