Michael Bay Announces 2014 Transformers 4, to Star Mark Wahlberg
Proof that in Hollywood, it still pays to be buff, not just a scrawny make-beleive vampire, Shia LaBeouf is likely to be dropped in favor of Mark Wahlberg. “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 for the fourth movie of the franchise which will likely be called “Rise of Galvatron” or something along those lines will start in spring 2013. Galvatron is the name given to the reborn Megatron, the leader of the Decepticons.
The film will be produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.
