Sophia Myles Set For Transformers 4
She'll deal with robo-action

Sophia Myles

She’s more usually found in the indie or romantic drama world, but Sophia Myles is no stranger to dipping into sci-action fare with roles in films like Underworld, Outlander and (whisper it) Thunderbirds. Now Myles is about to take her biggest leap into blockbuster territory by signing on to co-star in Transformers 4.

Her role is being kept quiet, though The Wrap has ferreted out that she’ll be a scientist, and a major supporting part of a cast that already includes Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and recent addition Kelsey Grammer.

Ehren Kruger is back writing this one, which is set after the devastating events of Dark Of The Moon with the Transformers largely gone from the planet. When some foolish government types decide to exploit Cybertronian technology to craft new weapons, they awaken the interest of an ancient robo-threat and Optimus Prime and the gang must save us all with the help of some new human companions.

Bay is set to kick off shooting in June in Chicago, Detroit and China. The film itself will invade our cinemas on July 10 next year. Myles, meanwhile, will next crop up in Gallows Hill and Blackwood.
