Transformers 4: Age of Extinction - Mark Wahlberg Reveals Back Story of New Movie: A Father Protecting His Daughter
By BaCon on Tuesday, December 24, 2013
Lead actor Mark Wahlberg talked to The Daily Beast about the "Transformers: Age of Extinction" movie that will be out next summer. The actor tells us more of the backstory that sets up the fourth movie that he describes as a stand-alone story that has its own story time based on the emotions between a father protecting his daughter.
He'd had a child when he was in high school and his wife passed away, and the promise he'd made to her was that she wouldn't date any boys until she graduated and that she'd be at the graduation - because we weren't due to the pregnancy. So there's an anchor to it and a realness to it that I like a lot.
It was a tighter script, and its own stand-alone thing. I think the emotional core of it, the human element, is going to be extremely powerful. It's an ordinary man trying to do extraordinary things to save his daughter and keep her alive - and this boyfriend he didn't know anything about.
