What started off as a bad rumor is now a sad truth. Today, Michael Bay himself confirmed via his official website that Mark Wahlberg will now be joining the Decepticons and the Autobots in Transformers 4. Mark recently worked with Bay on the upcoming film, Pain & Gain. Pain & Gain is based on a true story and stars Mark Wahlberg and The Rock. The two actors play bodybuilders who get wrapped up in extortion, kidnapping and murder. Bay’s work with Mark on the film is what ultimately caused him to add Mark to the film.
“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.”
Complaints? Grievances? I know many hardcore Transformers fans have been upset with the series for quiet sometime now, but this has to be just unbearable.
Whether you want it to or not, Transformers 4 is scheduled to begin shooting next spring and is slated to hit theaters July 27th, 2014
