Producer Michael Bay reveals big-name signing for sci-fi franchise...
Movie super-producer Michael Bay posted on his own website to break the news officially, although it had been rumoured in recent days.
Bay wrote: "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."
Wahlberg appeared in one of the year's biggest movies, Seth MacFarlane comedy Ted, and his previous roles include a critically praised turn in The Departed.
The movie is set to begin filming next spring, but none of the other main roles have been confirmed yet.
