The upcoming fourth film in the Transformers franchise now has a confirmed female lead. Director, Michael Bay has confirmed via his Twitter, that actress, Nicola Peltz has landed a coveted lead spot in the robot rampage romp.
Peltz, who appeared in the notorious The Last Airbender, can be currently seen on the new A&E Psycho prequel TV series, Bates Motel as the romantic interest of the young man destined to don drag and deal death in a shower. She will now follow a sacred tradition upheld by Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whitely of being the film's resident "babe" amongst Bay's monolithic metamorphic anthropomorphs. (Which is a lot more fun to say than simply "Transformers.") It is speculated that she will play the daughter of Mark Wahlberg's main character, while playing romantically opposite to a character from newcomer, Jack Reynor.
The news probably delivered a satisfying moment for news site, Twitch, who back in December actually reported that Peltz, along with Aussie actor, Brenton Thwaites would be the fourquel's featured young couple, only to be debunked. It turns out there was some veracity to their report. (Well 50% of it, anyway.) Now, the wild young coed who's trying to tame the creepy young Norman Bates will tangle with a different kind of loose cannon: GIANT ROBOTS WHO BLOW S**T UP.
At the moment, practically nothing is known about the film's plot (despite a recent widely-publicized false report), however, with the clock ticking closer towards the film's projected release date, you can bet those details won't be left a mystery for too long.
Transformers 4 (title not yet confirmed) uses Burger King-sponsored Decepticons to squash the Bates Motel in slow-motion when it hits theaters on June 27, 2014.
