No plot details or other cast members have been revealed yet but it is probably safe to say that Wahlberg will replace Shia Labeouf as Optimus Prime’s best human friend.
“Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on ‘Pain and Gain’ and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his calibre is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers’ legacy,” said Bay.
Bay will start filming the fourth addition of the Transformers series in spring and is scheduled to hit the screens in June 2014.
