HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 8, 2012) – After an exceptionally successful collaboration on the upcoming "Pain and Gain," Michael Bay has cast Academy Award®-nominee Mark Wahlberg in the highly anticipated "TRANSFORMERS 4." The film will hit theaters June 27th, 2014.

"Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on "Pain and Gain" and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers’ legacy," said Bay.

Bay will direct the next installment in the "TRANSFORMERS" series, which begins shooting next spring. From Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., in association with Hasbro, the film will be produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.

Bay’s first "TRANSFORMERS" film was a box office sensation in 2007, opening at #1 and earning more than $700 million worldwide. His second installment "TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN" in 2009 grossed more than $830 million worldwide. In 2011, "TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON" was an even bigger hit worldwide, grossing more than a billion dollars to become the 5th highest grossing film of all time. To date, the franchise has earned more than $2.6 billion worldwide.

From acclaimed director Michael Bay comes "Pain and Gain," a new action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. Based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson, and Bar Paly also star. The film is based on magazine articles by Pete Collins, with a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and produced by Donald DeLine, Michael Bay and Ian Bryce.

"PAIN AND GAIN" opens in theaters everywhere April 26th, 2013.

"BOOM! CraaaSShhH! then a giant cgi meteor crashes into the statue of liberty causing it to fall over and cause explosions EVERYWHERE! With cars flipping and fire! Craaagh! Boom! Crash! Raaaagh" - Michael Bay.
wolverinesfury - 11/8/2012, 5:59 PM
You know, you could just not go see the movie.
CaptainObvious - 11/8/2012, 6:01 PM
The only way I will ever see another Bay film is if I'm bored and a friend volunteers to pay for my ticket.
ManofSteel23 - 11/8/2012, 6:04 PM
he thinks hes made a legacy? lol
Giznad - 11/8/2012, 6:06 PM
is he going to stop the terrorists this time?
SageMode - 11/8/2012, 6:07 PM
Mark Wahlberg an academy award nominee? WTF!

His brother is a much better actor IMO. SMH
WildCard12 - 11/8/2012, 6:09 PM
Badass! [frick] all you haters!
ArtisticErotic - 11/8/2012, 6:11 PM
Dude it's supply and demand the movies suck ass but they make money thus they will keep making them, want to know why they keep making more and why Bay keeps coming back? Because you so called "hardcore fans" keeping seeing these movies and giving Bay more money to make more!

You don't like the movies do not support them. Even if you are bored and you let someone pay your way to a movie franchise you hate, guess what? You are still helping the cause.

Do NOT trust Michael Bay. He's a liar. Pretty much everything he denies gets confirmed to be true. Transformers is his franchise. I'm sorry for all the continuously disappointed fans.
Mrcool210 - 11/8/2012, 6:15 PM
if we get something like the happeneing then ill be happy
dxperry - 11/8/2012, 6:20 PM
I hope Walberg is a co-star with Shia Lo...however u spell his last name. Walberg is a decent actor. And I can picture him tougher then Shia, bit I liked Shia in the other movies. Intresting....

[Copies everything grif ever said. Pastes.]
Tufasrox - 11/8/2012, 6:34 PM
This is going to be another illegal download. I wouldn't even watch this crap on TV to give them ratings. The Second and Third movies were AWFUL. Except Peter Cullen. He da man.
SanFranLand - 11/8/2012, 6:35 PM
Grif!!! Tea!!!

We need some expert advice on how to deal with such dissappointing news
ahhmynuts - 11/8/2012, 6:37 PM
i like this move. wahlberg is a solid actor when it comes to action movies. i like how everyone here disses on michael bay like they have the credentials to do so lol. you dont know jack about directing. sure the writing is horrible but visually hes highly regarded. im not one to say how exactly but even the great directors you all worship say hes awesome. not a great writer, but when it comes to color, shapes, overall visuals basically hes one of the best. dont tell me his movies dont LOOK good.
MetropolisKid - 11/8/2012, 6:42 PM
wow..he would too.
