Well, things are looking up at least.
Michael Bay, after dispelling the rumors earlier this week, has officially announced that Mark Wahlberg (Ted, Four Brothers) will star in 2014’s Transformers 4. For me, this is huge, as Mark is a tremendous actor, and any Bay Transformers can use all the help they can get. Check out the official word from Bay below, as well as the new Transformers 4 logo above,
HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 8, 2012) – After an exceptionally successful collaboration on the upcoming “Pain and Gain,” Michael Bay has cast Academy Award®-nominee Mark Wahlberg in the highly anticipated “TRANSFORMERS 4.” The film will hit theaters June 27th, 2014.
“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 Bay.
