Mark Wahlberg confirmed for Transformers 4

After hinting at the prospect earlier this week, Michael Bay has confirmed that Mark Wahlberg will star 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 Bay.

Filming will begin early next year, and the fourth film will be released June 27th, 2014.
