Well that didn’t take long, did it? Just 24 hours after Michael Bay teased the announcement on his blog, Mark Wahlberg has officially been unveiled as the new star of Transformers 4. Having initially dismissed internet stories surrounding
the casting as mere speculation, Bay then announced
that the rumours had given him an idea, and now here
we are, with Wahlberg officially attached. “Mark is awesome,” said Bay in an official statement.
“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
calibre is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise
and carry on the Transformers legacy.” All of which leads us to wonder whether Bay had
Wahlberg in mind all along. Still, if you take his account
at face value, it’s a rather remarkable turn of events,
and a demonstration of how plugged-in Bay is to
internet chit-chat. Perhaps now all those Shia-haters will have a leading
man to rally behind. Transformers 4 will open on 27
June 2014, and it has a shiny new logo to boot. Lovely.
