Apparently director Michael Bay is in early talks with Mark Wahlberg to star in Transformers 4. As talks have just begun nothing is official. Wahlberg and Bay recently worked together on the film Pain and Gain, so it makes sense that they would want to work together again. Wahlberg has that kind of personality that would fit a movie like this. Wahlberg is hit and miss for me with the films he makes, but he's able to bring that everyman feel to the characters he plays. He also is a solid action star that gets people into the theaters.
Transformers 4 is going to be a sequel that I think will end up feeling like a reboot, as there's going to be a whole new cast, and a new gang of robots. It was recently revealed that one of the main characters would be a high school girl, Twitch adds in their report that the story will revolve around an adult character, that character would be the girl's father which might end up being played by Wahlberg. The site goes on to explain that the child "would then grow to be the focus of subsequent entries in the series."
What do you think about the possibility of Wahlberg starring in Transformers 4?
