Mark Wahlberg might be perfectly happy to join the Transformers on the big screen, but he once turned down a chance to be part of a more storied sci-fi franchise.
The Transformers franchise is getting a makeover. It's got a new leading man, and two fresh faced co-stars. Mark Wahlberg headlines the sequel, which he believes kicks it up a notch.
We already know who's going to star in Transformers 4, but the plot of the quasi-reboot has remained a mystery—until now. Luckily director Michael Bay has spilled a major detail on the plot, and it looks like we better get ready for a time-jump.
There has been a whirlwind of casting rumors surrounding Michael Bay's semi-reboot Transformers 4—and oddly enough it all centered on one guy, Bay-collaborator Mark Wahlberg (The Departed, The Other Guys).
A couple of weeks ago we heard whispers that Michael Bay's next Transformers flick could star Mark Wahlberg, a rumor that Bay himself promptly quashed. But now it seems Bay might be reconsidering, and we really could be headed for a Marky Mark-headlined Transformers 4 thanks to...well, you people.
We thought we'd finally figured out what Michael Bay was cooking up for Transformers 4 thanks to a recent casting report, and now the explosion maestro himself has responded to the rumor. So what'd he have to say?
Whether you want it or not, Transformers 4 is happening. Michael Bay is wasting no time finding a new face for the franchise. Instead of going with a young unknown, the director's eyeing a more established actor.
We'd just recently heard that long-delayed Neuromancer might be eyeing some big additions to the cast that could finally get it on track. Now it's official—the producers are in talks with Liam Neeson and Mark Wahlberg for starring roles.
The Oscar nominee seems to have reached a point in his career where candor can't hurt him anymore. First, he unleashed on the crappiness of M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening and now he reveals what went wrong with Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes.
Nathan Fillion (and Nathan Fillion fans) must be feeling a glimmer of hope right about now, because it seems Mark Wahlberg may NOT be playing Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted: Drake's Fortune movie after all. That is, IF we can believe the director of the upcoming Uncharted 3 videogame.
