Although details are decidedly few, Spoiler TV is reporting that Michael Bay's Transformers 4 could feature a female protagonist. According to the site, a search is now underway for an actress to play the leading role of a high school senior. Also being cast, they say, is the character's boyfriend, a Texan racecar driver.
Bay recently spoke about the project, now in development for a June 27, 2014 release, suggesting that this is likely the final Transformers adventure with him at the helm. Ehren Kruger is providing the screenplay which is rumored to take the storyline into outer space with a brand new cast of both humans and robots.
Bay's next project, Pain & Gain is a bit more down to earth, starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as a pair of bodybuilders who, in a true story, take to a life of crime. That film is scheduled for release on April 26, 2013.
