Apr 18, 2013 | 6:04am EDT

Movie executives behind the upcoming Transformers sequel have launched a TV talent show to give aspiring actors the chance to win roles in the blockbuster. Michael Bay's fourth robot movie, starring Mark Wahlberg, is being made in conjunction with a Chinese production company, so executives at Paramount Pictures have decided to boost the film's fan base in the country by launching a small screen side project. The show, titled Transformers 4 Chinese Actor Talent Search, will allow wannabes to compete for four coveted roles in the movie in front of a judging panel which includes Sid Ganis, former President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Transformers producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura, and casting director Denise Chamian. Transformers 4 will be partly shot in China and is set for release in the summer of 2014. The TV talent contest will begin airing in China in June (13).
