The “Transformers” franchise has been a huge box office success with Shia LaBeouf leading the cast for the first three installments, but since the actor has announced that he didn’t want to do another one as he was “done” with big budget movies, someone else had to replace him.

Now, rumors have been going around that Mark could be cast for “Transformers 4,” which will premiere in June 27, 2012.

Director Michael Bay spoke highly of Wahlberg, saying:

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 calibre is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the ‘Transformers’ legacy.”

Do you think Mark Wahlberg should be the new “Transformers” lead?
