Mark Wahlberg has agreed to star in the rebootquel of the Transformers franchise. According to Michael Bay, he listened to internet speculation and decided to make a run at getting Mark Wahlberg. It paid off. The Shia-less sequel has been said to be a shift in the franchise from being a human story with robots in it, to being more focused on the robots. By removing Shia, I am hopeful that we get a more serious in tone film about toy robots. Yea I just said that.
Transformers 4 is scheduled for release June 27th, 2014, assuming the world doesn’t end.
