Over night rumors began circulating that Mark Wahlberg was being sought out to star in Transformers 4. The “truth” behind this being Wahlberg recently finished working on Pain and Gain with Michael Bay and now the two were discussing another project, assumed to be the upcoming Transformers 4. This obviously conflicted with the reports we’d been hearing that Bay was seeking a female actress for the lead role, but the story kept getting stronger and was eventually being reported by many a reputable site.
Well, it’s wrong. Bay himself took to the forums to the dispute the rumor, stating,
The Mark Wahlberg T4 rumor is just a rumor. Mark and I are talking about another film project. -Michael
There ya go. Not happening. Then again, Bay also claimed some time ago he wouldn’t be doing a Transformers 4, and here we are.
What say you bastards? Does Bay speak the truth? More misdirection? Does anyone actually give a rat’s ass about Transformers 4?
