Mark Wahlberg Signs for 'Transformers 4'

Actor Mark Wahlberg’s next role will be fighting robots as the new face in “Transformers 4”!

Director Michael Bay confirmed the news on his blog. “Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on ‘Pain and Gain’ and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers’ legacy.”
The film will premiere June 27, 2014… with a little help from fans. Bay wrote on his website, “Let’s say some ideas are gaining traction with me and my writer – so I’m here to say thanks internet chatter.”
Michael told the L.A. Times in an earlier interview that the latest installment will feature a new cast and possibly redesigned robots, a jump to the future, and a journey into space, but it definitely isn’t a reboot. “We’re taking the story that you’ve seen -- the story we’ve told in three movies already -- and we’re taking it in a new direction.”
