Will Mark Wahlberg star in Transformers 4?
Before his big screen breakthrough in Boogie Nights, most people knew Mark Wahlberg as Mary Mark, the 90’s one hit wonder who also posed in his underwear for Calvin Klein.
Thankfully, Wahlberg's role in Boogie Nights lead to an A-list Hollywood career, saving him from a horrible reality TV future, like Vanilla Ice appearing on The Surreal Life.
This rumor recently surfaced on both Collider and Indie Wire, among other sites, and this could be very welcome news to those who can’t stand Shia LaBeouf. (Love him or hate him, LaBeouf is sticking to his declaration that he won’t be back for any more Transformers flicks).
Transformers 4 is currently scheduled for a June 27, 2014 release date, and Pain and Gain is scheduled for April 26 of next year. Interestingly, footage for Pain and Gain was recently screened at Paramount, along with clips from the deeply troubled World War Z. Cinema Blend noted that Pain and Gain was by far "the most appealing footage" shown from Paramount’s upcoming slate.
Surprisingly, the site says this very odd combo works, and of course we’ll see for sure next April.
