Mark Wahlberg to star in Transformers 4?

Nov 8 2012, 10:06am CST | by

Michael Bay has hinted he is considering signing Mark Wahlberg up for 'Transformers 4' after internet rumours gave him the idea.

Michael Bay is considering signing Mark Wahlberg up for 'Transformers 4'.
The 47-year-old director - who helmed the first three films in the franchise - previously dismissed speculation the 'Ted' star is going to be in the forthcoming movie but the filmmaker has now hinted the 41-year-old star could appear in the motion picture after rumours presented him with the idea to cast Mark.
In a post on his personal website, Michael 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.''
Shia LaBeouf starred in the first three movies in the franchise and while there was recent speculation he had been offered $18 million to reprise his role of Sam Witwicky for a fourth time, his representatives have since denied such claims.
Despite originally saying he didn't want to helm a fourth 'Transformers' movie, Michael recently admitted he decided to do the film because he didn't want anyone else to ''screw it up'', and he was impressed with 'Transformers' rollercoaster ride at Universal Studios when it opened in Hollywood in May.
He explained: ''I thought I was done. Then the ride came out and the two-and-a-half-hour lines. And then you're thinking, 'Oh my God, someone's going to take this over.' And you start doing a lot of soul-searching.''
'Transformers 4' is slated for a June 2014 release.

"Interstellar" has begun to screen for critics around the world and the first reviews are coming in with some intriguingly divided reactions. Pretty much every review praises the visuals, scope, acting and ambition of the project and urge readers to see it on the biggest screen possible. Yet, quite a few have some big issues with the script, the manipulative emotion and the themes on display. Here's a sampling of revie ...

Review: Bland, Horrible 'Ouija' is Part of a Bigger Hollywood Problem

Oct 24 2014 10:51am CDT | Source: First Showing

There's an odd correlation between cineplex screens and toy-store shelves these days. The movies-being-turned-into-toys-being-turned-into-movies cycle is hardly a 2014 revelation. But, with Michael Bay's most recent Transformers movie scraping the well in search for content, it finally felt like that synergistic cycle was a foregone conclusion. Entertainment and, God forbid, story were afterthoughts to the dollars and cents the film ultimately pulled in. I use Tran ...

Rare Concept Art: See Completely Different Looks for the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' and 'E.T.'

Oct 14 2014 11:44am CDT | Source: movies.com

Fans were pretty split on this summer’s rebooting of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, but the film earned enough money to warrant a sequel and the Turtles are among this year's top Halloween costumes. We don’t know what producer Michael Bay and company have in store for their next adventure, but we can look back at what might have been thanks to what is presumably concept art from the first feature. Artist Tsvet ...

Forget Ouija and Battleship: Here Are 11 Board Game Movies Hollywood Should Make Next

Oct 14 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

The following post was originally published on February 24th 2014. Which board game movies should Hollywood make next? Over the last year or so I’ve gotten sucked into the table top scene, and now have a board game addiction. I’m not talking about Monopoly or The Game of Life, but designer hobby board games that offer more strategy and theme than the games we all played as children. Hollywood has dipped its toes into the board game movies a few times now. First with Battleship. It ...

This Week In Trailers: The Postal Service – Everything Will Change, Evolution of a Criminal, Heartbeat, Point and Shoot, Abuse of Weakness

Oct 11 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: slash film

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, revisit ...

LOL: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Honest Trailer

Oct 8 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

The Screen Junkies team isn’t always mean. When they’re genuinely impressed by a movie, they’re honest enough to say so. But if I’m being honest, it’s more fun to watch them rip a deserving target to shreds. And the Transformers: Age of Extinction Honest Trailer is truly a delight to behold. The video tears into all the obnoxious, nonsensical, and downright stupid aspects of the Michael Bay-directed extravaganza, and even delves into some eye-rolling e ...
