Internet rumours see Wahlberg edge closer to Transformers role

November 7th, 2012 by bash Comments

A few weeks back we reported, a long with a number of other news outlets, that Michael Bay was considering casting Mark Wahlberg in the next Transformers film.

Then came the denials, from none other than the director himself.

However, Bay has now posted on his website that the rumour had given him a new idea for T4.

He wrote: “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 there you have it. Wahlberg could be cast alongside Optimus Prime and Co in the next big screen adventure. Is this a good idea? As ever let us know what you think.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
