Four Actresses Make Shortlist for 'Transformers 4' Female Lead: Who Would You Choose?

Transformers 4 may be almost two years away from hitting theaters, but the entire casting process and story development looks to drag on for the foreseeable future.

With a general idea of the sequel in place (it takes place four years after the events of Transformers 3) and a leading man recently cast in Mark Wahlberg, all eyes are now on who producer/director Michael Bay will cast in the female/eye-candy role.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who supplanted Megan Fox in the third film will not be returning. I suppose it's safe to presume that her character and Shia LaBeouf's Sam Witwicky drove off in the Chicago sunset to live happily ever after.

Now four actresses have emerged as front-runners for the female lead role, which, according to THR, would be Wahlberg's daughter.

The candidates (pictured below, clockwise) are Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender), Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers), Isabelle Cornish (Abbie Cornish's sister) and Margaret Qualley (Andie Macdowell's daughter).

Bay has been keeping plot details under wraps, but has previously suggested that the characters might go into outer space. We do know that the movie will feature an all-new robot cast as well, but first things first – which one of the four front-runners would you like to see nab the female lead role? Or would you like to nominate a different actress/model for the part?
