Mark Wahlberg says ‘Transformers 4’ will be ‘very different from the others’

Actor speaks about latest installment in robot franchise

Mark Wahlberg has promised that Transformers 4 will be “very different” from the other films in the series.

Speaking to Empire, Wahlberg said that the latest installment in the robot franchise would mark a departure from the previous three films and re-iterated previous comments from director Michael Bay that it would be on a smaller scale than its predecessors.

The actor, who would only reveal that he plays a “man who has a child” in the film, said: “Michael and I had an amazing experience working together on Pain & Gain. That movie is insane. It’s like Boogie Nights meets Pulp Fiction meets Fargo.

“Michael made that movie for $25m and then he asked me if I wanted to work with him again, told me his idea and I said, ‘I’m in’,” he added. “It’s very different from the other three.” He also later went on to say that the storyline will be “just a couple of people in a room talking”.

Earlier this year, Bay revealed that Transformers 4 will be the start of a new trilogy and that Jack Reynor will be taking the lead opposite Wahlberg.

The director has overseen all of the previous three Transformers movies starring Shia LaBeouf, and his latest film Pain & Gain, starring Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, is due for release in the UK on 3 May 2013.

Transformers 4 is expected to be released in the UK on 27 June 2014.
