Jack Reynor set for ‘Transformers 4’

Thesp to star opposite Mark Wahlberg

Jack Reynor is set to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in Paramount’s untitled “Transformers” sequel.

Michael Bay, who directed all three previous installments, is back to direct with Ehren Krueger penning the script. Plot details are unknown, except that it will not be connected to past characters.

Bay announced the casting on his site saying, “I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg. 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 added the pic is not a reboot and will be set four years after the last one ended.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy, Ian Bryce and Tom DeSanto will produce. Paramount has slated the pic for June 27, 2014.

Reynor has been in demand of late, with several studios looking to lock him up in some capacity. Besides “Transformers,” Reynor had also tested for Summit’s “Divergent” back in November, but as Variety first reported today, he was not among the three actors who will test for that role later this week.

Reynor just wrapped production on the DreamWorks pic “The Delivery Man” starring Vince Vaughn. He is repped by WME, ARG and Macfarlane Chard.
