Chinese star Han Geng has been cast in 'Transformers 4'.
The actor-and-singer will join fellow Chinese star Li Bingbing in the action blockbuster, which will partly be filmed in China following a co-production deal between Paramount Pictures and China Movie Channel.
Director Michael Bay announced the casting on his official website and hailed Geng as one of the most ''influential'' stars in China.
He wrote: ''He's one of Asia's top stars in the worlds of music, television and movies and has become one of the most influential entertainers in China.''
29-year-old Geng is a big star in his native country, as well as South Korea, and boasts 35 million followers on the Chinese equivalent to Twitter, Weibo.
Beginning his career as a member of boy band Super Juniors, Geng recently starred in one of China's biggest home-grown blockbuster movies, 'So Young', which grossed $117 million in the country.
Geng is the latest name to be added to a growing cast list, which also includes Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Sophia Myles and Kelsey Grammer.
Producers previously announced a reality show in China to hire four actors - two professional and two amateur - to win roles in the flick.
