By adding in Wahlberg, Bay has all but assured a better movie than any of the Transformers films starring Shia Lebeouf.
Michael Bay was caught by TMZ and one of the questions they managed to shoot off was about who Mark Wahlberg would be playing in the upcoming film. Here’s the exchange:
TMZ: So, any early idea of what the story is going to be on Transformers and how Mark… He’s not taking over Shia’s role?
MICHAEL BAY: No no. The movie will continue four years from the Attack on Chicago; which is in the last movie. So it’s going to still have the same lineage. And it’s going a full new direction and feels very natural how it’s going in that direction, there is no way you’re going to ever find out what the story is because you don’t have to dig through my trash but I shredded my trash…
