Mark Wahlberg to star in ‘Transformers 4’

Michael Bay, director of the Transformers film series, confirmed that Mark Wahlberg, will star in next summer's Transformers 4. Bay and Wahlberg recently worked together on Pain & Gain, an upcoming action comedy that also stars Dwayne (formerly known as "The Rock") Johnson. 

In a post on his website, Bay says, "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."

The first Transformers film opened at No. 1 and earned more than $700 million worldwide when it was release in 2007. The second film, Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen grossed more than $830 million, and the last film, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, brought in more than a billion dollars, making it the fifth highest grossing film of all time. 

The fourth installment of the franchise hits theaters June 27, 2014.
