Mark Wahlberg has given a brief update about his work on Ted 2 and Transformers 4.
The actor said he’d he’d be working on the Michael Bay actioner first before moving directly unto the comedy sequel.
During recent press meetings of his new political thriller Broken Glass, Wahlberg revealed that his work on Transformers 4 came about after working with Bay on the forthcoming Pain and Gain.
“That’s why Transformers came about, because we had such a great time working together [on Pain and Gain],” he said. “We kind of complemented each other throughout the entire process, what he does and what I do and what we were able to do together, and then after that I was like ‘Dude we gotta work together again,’ and he was like, ‘Well I got a project, you interested?’”
As for Ted 2, he said: “We’re shooting Transformers in May, and then I believe we’re gonna do Ted 2 right after. They’re working on it now and we’ve kind of gone through the negotiation process. The great thing about it is Seth’s ideas for the second one are sick. He comes from the world of episodic television so he knows how to tell the stories, man, in a way that most people don’t, like for instance The Italian Job we’ve been trying to do the sequel for 10 years. He’s a different kind of guy.”
