Last month a rumor hit the internet that Mark Wahlberg was in talks to join Michael Bay's Transformers 4. Bay quickly went on his blog and said that it wasn't true, and that they were collaborating on a different project. Today Bay is back on his blog, hinting that Wahlberg might end up in the film after all! Here's what he said,
I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Walhberg. Mark was rumored to be staring in Transformers 4. We are working on another movie together, not T4. I had such a great time working with Mark on Pain and Gain, and he gave such a great performance – well let’s say that very internet chatter gave me some ideas. We are at the inception of our story process right now on T4. Let’s say some ideas are gaining traction with me and my writer – so I’m here to say thanks internet chatter.
So it sounds like the internet just got Wahlberg cast in the movie. Now that the film is moving forward with the possibility of Wahlberg starring in it what do you think!? Are you happy or pissed at the internet right now?
Transformers 4 is currently in development for a June 27th, 2014 release. There's no word on whether this will be Bay's last Transformers movie or not, but probably not.
