There were rumors all over the internet last week about Mark Wahlberg reportedly getting cast in Transformers 4, despite no official reports or information released about. In fact, the only connection between Mark Wahlberg and Transformers 4 at the time seemed to be that Wahlberg was acting in Michael Bay’s current action film, ‘Pain and Gain’.
However, Bay is opening up about these rumors and saying that they may have given him some ideas – a.k.a the internet may have singlehandedly cast Mark Wahlberg in Transformers 4.
In an open letter on his website, Bay wrote, "I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Walhberg. Mark was rumored to be staring in Transformers 4. We are working on another movie together, not T4. I had such a great time working with Mark on Pain and Gain, and he gave such a great performance – well let’s say that very internet chatter gave me some ideas. We are at the inception of our story process right now on T4. Let’s say some ideas are gaining traction with me and my writer – so I’m here to say thanks internet chatter."
Transformers 4 is currently being prepped for a summer 2014 release.
