The "Transformers" film franchise is getting some serious muscle.


Mark Wahlberg has been cast in "Transformers 4,"which will hit theaters on June 27, 2014.

Director Michael Bay made the announcement Thursday evening. Bay and Wahlberg recently collaborated on "Pain and Gain" -- a movie about bodybuilders turned criminals set for release next April.

"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," said Bay.

The first three "Transformers" films have been critically panned but box office successes, earning more than $2.6 billion worldwide.

But don't expect to see Shia LaBeouf reprising his role. The actor told The Hollywood Reporterin August that he is done with big blockbusters, saying the studios "stick a finger up your ass."
