Los Angeles - Mark Wahlberg, roll out.

Transformers director Michael Bay says the 41-year-old actor will star in the franchise's fourth film.

Bay called Wahlberg the "perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers' legacy" in a post on his blog Thursday.

He previously squashed rumours that Wahlberg was joining the film franchise about warring robots.

'I'm so fired up'

"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.

Transformers 4 is scheduled to be released by Paramount Pictures on 27 June 2014.

Bay has said the next film will take a new direction in the series. The first three movies starred Shia LaBeouf and featured Peter Cullen as the voice of Autobot general Optimus Prime.

The third Transformers film, Dark of the Moon, was the second highest-grossing film of 2011.
