AFTER an exceptionally successful collaboration on the forthcoming Pain and Gain, Michael Bay has cast Academy Award-nominee Mark Wahlberg in Transformers 4.
The film will be released in June, 2014.
The director said: "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 calibre is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers’ legacy.”
Bay will direct the next instalment in the Transformers series which begins shooting next spring.
To date, the Transformers franchise has earned more than $2.6 billion worldwide.
Pain and Gain is an action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie, based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. It opens in theatres everywhere in May, 2013.
