Emmy Award-winning actor Stanley Tucci is confirmed to be on board Michael Bay's upcoming film. Attending CinemaCon on April 15 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to promote "Pain and Gain", Michael Bay announced that "The Lovely Bones" actor would star in "Transformers 4" alongside Mark Wahlberg.

The sequel to "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" has had two rising stars Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz in the cast ensemble. Bay revealed that he would add another young promising actor to join his film, which is the fourth film of the "Transformers" film franchise, and promise to name this mystery star shortly.

In addition to the casting news, Bay announced that the production of the robot-themed film would use new smaller IMAX 3D cameras. "We're screwed with the amount of computing power we're going to need here," said the 48-year-old director, who has been nominated for worst director four times at the Golden Raspberry Awards.

With a brand new cast ensemble, the film was rumored to be a reboot. However, Bay denied the false report. "It's not a reboot, that's maybe wrong," he said to Hero Complex. The action film opens June 27, 2014 in the United States.
