The latest Transformers 4 rumor from Twitch is that Mark Wahlberg is negotiating a role in the movie.
The Oscar-nominated thesp has reportedly entered early talks with Michael Bay to take on the lead role in T4.
However, according to the director’s blog the story is ‘just a rumor’. Bay and Wahlberg were in talks, but for another project:
The Mark Wahlberg T4 rumor is just a rumor.
Mark and I are talking about another film project.
From a financial standpoint, the idea of Wahlberg involvement in the next installment of the Transformers series certainly makes sense, but Bay is still in the early stages of T4 and we should hear more about the fourth entry as we move closer towards the June 29th, 2014 release date.
Wahlberg and Michael Bay have just worked together on low-budget dark comedy Pain and Gain.
Do you think Wahlberg would make a good antagonist in T4?
