Age of Extinction
Transformers 4 - Mark Wahlberg In Talks With Micheal Bay For Possible Role

By Jack on Wednesday, October 24, 2012



Its not that much of a stretch to imagine Mark Whalberg on the screen for Transformers 4. He is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood this year, AND he just finished the "Pain and Gain" movie with Micheal Bay. According to Twitch, the two are talking right now: "Twitch has learned that Michael Bay is having early conversations with Mark Wahlberg to star in the upcoming, Paramount backed Transformers 4." The news comes with a bit of information on what the role the may be, with him playing a central role as the parent of the teenage lead role we have learned about already, a race car driver from Texas.
Though things are still very much in early days and there is a good road to go down before anything is official, Twitch has learned that Michael Bay is having early conversations with Mark Wahlberg to star in the upcoming, Paramount backed Transformers 4.
...
Ehren Kruger - also responsible for the second and third installments in the series - is again penning the script, one that we are hearing will revolve around an adult star (the part being discussed with Wahlberg) and his teenage child with the idea being that the child would then grow to be the focus of subsequent entries in the series.

That makes sense... but I never really see him as being a DAD.

I can see Mark playing that type of role. Though I heard most of the movie would be in space.

An updated movieverse Sparkplug could be a 40-something Gulf War vet. That's the update Frank Castle got for the Punisher movie.

Well let's think about that. They basically made up Sam and his grandfather for the movies. It makes me wonder why... it can't be a character naming thing right? If it is a trade mark thing, Hasbro might have just taken care of that anyways since a Spike Witwicky toy was released in the DOT... read more

Mark Wahlberg is a solid lead. I just hope whomever they get to play his kid isn't a douche. It sounds like they have a Spike-to-Daniel transition planned for the next trilogy.

Boogie Nights is a good movie. A lot of these songs were around before they were used in Transformers the Movie. For example, "Nothing's Gonna Stand in Our Way" can be heard at the beginning of the movie Savage Streets, and that movie was released in 1984.

Perhaps emboldened by the amazing success of Marvel's take on a shared continuity for its increasingly numerous movies and now TV projects, Hasbro has made known their plans to try this approach with the Transformers movie series. But what can we expect from this direction, and how might it affect Transformers 5? Keep reading for some thoughts.
In what may be remembered as the least surprising news of 2015, it sounds like Michael Bay will be returning again for the next installment in the Transformers film series. At CinemaCon, Vice Chairman of Paramount Rob Moore was said to have "promised" theatre owners attending the event that Bay was already in the process of developing the next Transformers movie. It was previously reported that Bay had opted to take on a different project which would keep him from directing a fifth Transformers movie. Keep reading for more!
Entertainment Weekly confirms that Hasbro has hired writer Akiva Goldsman to head up the writing team that will work on expanding the Transformers movie world into a broader cinematic franchise. CEO Brian Goldner revealed this in Hasbro's quarterly earnings conference call yesterday, and added that Transformers 5 is expected in 2017. A director is not mentioned, and while Michael Bay was named in connection with the project in rumors it's entirely logical that the financially successful director would be consulted on what "his" franchise would do next.

Genetic of TFND has come through again with a huge gallery of photos of Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition, the most heavily equipped and painted version of Transformers 1-3 Optimus Prime you will ever see.

The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted a wealth of images of the new Ultimate Optimus Prime, showing off what almost has to be the definitive version of Optimus as he appeared in Transformers (2007), Revenge Of The Fallen, and Dark Of the Moon. Featuring comparisons to the previous APS-01 release, Ultimate Prime features lots more paint and a tremendous loadout of weapons. The figure's due for release on April 24th but in the meantime you can keep reading to see the mirrored gallery of 43 images!
