Mark Wahlberg to star in Michael Bay’s ‘Transformers 4’
When Shia Labeouf, who starred in the first three Transformers films, announced his departure from the franchise, we doubt any list for his replacement featured Mark Wahlberg. But the actor has indeed signed on to star in the next film, Transformers 4.
Michael Bay announced the news, saying, “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.”
While it’s a strange move on everyone’s part, we can’t help but think it may indeed breathe new life into the increasingly stale action/sci-fi series. The film will hit cinemas on June 27, 2014.
