TF4 Filming Dates and Lead Character Info

Acting-Auditions has posted a casting call for Transformers 4, which confirms the previous lead character rumor. According to the post, Michael Bay is looking for an 18 year old girl who can play a high school senior and a male in his early twenties that will play a race car driver from Texas and the girl's boyfriend. The post also reveals that filming will begin in April or May of 2013, which conflicts with what was previously reported by Glenn Morshower, who stated filming would commence in December of this year. This shows that Morshower might have been talking about pre-production instead of actual filming.

Take a look at the official release from the site after the jump. (The above image is not official)
Di Bonaventura Pictures and DreamWorks SKG in association with Hasbro are in development on the Paramount Pictures science fiction action film "Transformers 4". The casting directors are auditioning actors for the new lead roles in the film, as neither Shia LaBeouf or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are returning. The female lead role is an 18 year old or above who can play high school senior age, and the male lead is an early twenties Texas race car driver who plays the female lead's boyfriend. Shooting will take place in various locations beginning in April or May of 2013. This film is currently being referred to as "Untitled Transformers Sequel".
Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Michael Bay will return to direct his fourth installment of the film series from a screenplay written by Ehren Kruger, who also wrote "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon". Bay has said that this will be his final installment in the franchise, however Hasbro has stated that they would like to continue making additional Transformers films with or without Michael Bay. Writer Ehren Kruger's other credits include "Arlington Road," "Scream 3 & 4," "The Ring," "The Skeleton Key," and "The Brothers Grimm".

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg will again executive produce, along with Mark Vahradian for Di Bonaventura Pictures, and Brian Goldner for Hasbro. Producers are Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto, and Academy Award nominee Ian Bryce. Spielberg and Bryce have collaborated on other films including "Saving Private Ryan," for which they both won Golden Globe Awards. Bryce also worked as assistant director on the Spielberg directed film "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", and production manager on Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". More recently Bryce and Michael Bay both produced the Paramount Pictures feature film "Pain & Gain", on which Bay also directed.

There has been some speculation that "Transformers 4" and "Transformers 5" will be shot back-to-back with Michael Bay at the helm, however there has been no official confirmation of this. Hasbro CEO announced at the company’s third quarter earnings conference that they were actively discussing this strategy with Paramount, director Michael Bay and producer Steven Spielberg. Glenn Morshower, who appeared as General Morshower in the first three "Transformers" films stated that Bay and Spielberg were not only working on "Transformers 4", but more than likely "Transformers 5" as well. "Transformers 4" is scheduled to hit theaters on June 27, 2014.


  1. I think Bay will be changing up the main human character this time from a male to a female. I hope this is the case! It'd be great to see a female be the leading character for a change.
    You rarely see that in action films today, especially in a film that is based off of car and Robot action figures.
