Stanley Tucci joins Transformers 4

Michael Bay has used this year's CinemaCon to drop some tasty morsels regarding Transformers 4 , revealing that Stanley Tucci will join the cast and that some of the film will be shot using new IMAX 3D digital cameras.

Tucci becomes the latest confirmed cast member to join Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor, and although nothing has been revealed about his character, we've no doubt he'll be an excellent addition to proceedings.

Meanwhile, Bay was also excited to announce that certain sections of the film will be shot using IMAX cameras. But not just any old IMAX cameras. Apparently Bay has got his hands on the new IMAX 3D digital cameras, which are smaller and easier to use than the traditionally unwieldy IMAX technology.

As you might expect, they're hugely expensive and output a huge amount of data, so Bay will only be using them to shoot the most action-tastic sequences. Then again, this is Michael Bay we're talking about, so those scenes probably won't be scarce.

Transformers 4 will be the first film to employ the technology, although Bay will be taking a pass on high frame rate. We'll get to see how the finished article looks when the film opens in the UK on 27 June 2014.
