After first denying and then later saying it might be a good idea after all, director Michael Bay has officially confirmed that Mark Wahlberg has been cast in Transformers 4. According to Michael Bay, he was originally working with Mark Wahlberg on Pain and Gain, and it was only after the rumor surfaced on the Internet that he and his writer got the idea to cast Mark Wahlberg in Transformers 4.
“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,” said Micheal Bay.
In addition to making the announcement about Mark Wahlberg, Michael Bay also released a logo for the film. Transformers 4 begins shooting next spring. Transformers 4 will be released in theaters on June, 27, 2014.
