Nicola Peltz - Nicola Peltz signs up for Transformers 4

Nicola Peltz is set to star in 'Transformers 4'.

The up-and-coming actress has been confirmed for the lead female role in the Michael Bay-directed alien robot blockbuster, joining Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor.

Asked whether former 'Transformers' star Megan Fox might return for the forthcoming movie on Twitter, Bay responded: ''No. Female lead has been cast. Nicola Peltz.''

The 18-year-old actress previously starred in M. Night Shyamalan's 'The Last Airbender' in 2009, which was a big screen adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'.

Peltz is currently working on TV show 'Bates Motel', which is a loose prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's serial killer horror, 'Psycho', and follows the lives of a teenage Norman Bates and his mother Norma.

Based on early plot outlines, it looks as though the actress will play the daughter of Wahlberg's character, who is dating the arrogant race car driver played by Reynor.

Peltz follows in the footsteps of beauties such as Megan Fox, who starred in the first 'Transformers' movie and 2009 sequel 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen', and model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who starred in 2011's 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon'.

The latest film, which is set after the events of the previous movie, is due to begin filming in Michigan later this year and is scheduled for release in June 2014.
