Director Michael Bay delivered a few pieces of news last night at CinemaCon, revealing that he’ll shoot the big showcase scenes in Transformers 4 with the new IMAX 3D digital camera and that Stanley Tucci will join the cast.
Bay was reportedly very excited to have Company You Keep star Tucci onboard the movie, which will star Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz, as well as another mysterious young actor that Bay teased will be announced very shortly.
At this time, nothing has been revealed about Tucci’s character.
The sequel follows ‘a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists [who] attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control—all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs.’
Transformers 4 will be released on June 27th, 2014.
Tucci is currently starring in Jack the Giant Slayer, and will next be seen later this year reprising his role as Caesar Flickerman in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
