Director talks casting Mark Wahlberg, says he never lied about it
Just a few days ago, Michael Bay confirmed rumors that Mark Wahlberg would star in the upcoming “Transformers 4,” right after he firmly denied them. He’s now offering more details on the next installment in the franchise.For starters, Bay is denying ever lying to fans about Mark’s involvement, Slash Film reports.
He’s well aware that this is how it looks like, like he lied, but insists that, at the time he denied Mark was in it, they really had come to no agreement in this sense, even if they were toying with the idea.
He also denies that Wahlberg will be playing an older version of Shia LaBeouf’s Sam Witwicky.
“The movie will continue four years from the Attack on Chicago; which is in the last movie. So it’s going to still have the same lineage,” Bay says.
“And it’s going a full new direction and feels very natural how it’s going in that direction, there is no way you’re going to ever find out what the story because you don’t have to dig through my trash but I shredded my trash…Pentagon level encryption on our computers. So good luck to ya!” the director adds.
“Transformers 4,” whose official logo is in the image above, will be out in theaters in June 2014.
