Brenton Thwaites, Nicola Peltz Will Reportedly Join Mark Wahlberg in 'Transformers 4'

Brenton Thwaites and Nicola Peltz

A couple weeks back, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Michael Bay was testing out young actors to play the role of Mark Wahlberg's daughter and her race car-driving boyfriend in Transformers 4. It seems like those screen tests have been completed and Bay has found his actors.

According to Twitch, the coveted roles have gone to Nicola Peltz and Brenton Thwaites, with Pletz playing Wahlberg's daughter and Thwaites, her boyfriend. Better get familiar with those two because, unless they pull a Megan Fox, they'll will be most likely be signed for all three of the new Transformers movies.

Peltz was last seen in the theaters playing the character Katara in M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender.

As for Thwaites, he was a regular in the Australian TV series SLIDE and Home and Away. He plays the prince in Disney's forthcoming Sleeping Beauty tale Maleficent.

Transformers 4 is said to take place four years after the events in Dark of the Moon and production will begin in the spring of 2013.

According to Bay in an interview, the release date for Transformers 4 has been changed from June 27, 2014 to July 4, 2014.
