Last month, word got out online that Mark Wahlberg was in talks with Michael Bay to star in the upcoming “Transformers” film, the fourth. Bay initially denied reports but, as per his own words, he’s had a change of heart.
Writing on his official webpage, Bay is letting his fans know that their voices (those saying they wanted Wahlberg on “Transformers 4,” that is) have been heard – more or less.
“I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Wahlberg. Mark was rumored to be starring in Transformers 4. We are working on another movie together, not T4,” Bay writes.
“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,” he adds. I can almost see him winking at this.
He goes on to explain that a cameo at the very least would be possible.
“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,” Bay adds.
Michael Bay is known to be of a fickle disposition even where his own movies are concerned. For the time being, not much is known of “Transformers 4” save that it will be his “last,” but we heard that before too.
