Rising 14-year-old actress and singer Isabela Moner (Nickelodeon’s “100 Things to Do Before High School”) is being eyed for a leading role opposite Mark Wahlberg in the fifth “Transformers” film at Paramount Pictures.
Moner is poised to play the young female lead of Izabella, a street-smart tomboy who grew up an orphan and was raised in foster care. She counts a small Transformer as her only friend… until she meets Wahlberg’s heroic inventor Cade Yeager.
Michael Bay is returning to direct the project which Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce and Steven Spielberg will executive produce. Production is slated to start this summer in Detroit ahead of a June 2017 release.
