Mark Wahlberg to Replace Shia in ‘Transformers 4’

Michael Bay and Mark WahlbergTransformers director Michael Bay has revealed on his blog that Mark Wahlberg will be replacing Shia LaBeouf in the fourth installment of the alien robot franchise.

"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," Bay wrote.

Projected for a June 27, 2014 release, Transformers 4 is expected to take a new direction in the series.
