Los Angeles - Mark Wahlberg has confirmed he is to star in Transformers 4.

The 41-year-old actor has revealed he will be the new male lead in the franchise and he decided to accept a part in the movie after developing such a great working relationship with director Michael Bay on the set of their upcoming action comedy film Pain and Gain.

He told website Collider.com: "Transformers came about because we had such a great time working together [on Pain and Gain]. We kind of complemented each other throughout the entire process with what he does and what I do and what we were able to do together, and then after that I was like, 'Dude we gotta work together again,' and he was like, 'Well I got a project, you interested?'"

Ted 2

Mark - who will be replacing Shia LaBeouf in the franchise - has also signed up for another sequel.

The Hollywood hunk will be reprising his role as John Bennett for another instalment of crude comedy Ted 2.

He added: "We're shooting Transformers in May, and then I believe we're gonna do Ted 2 right after. They're working on it now and we've kind of gone through the negotiation process.

"The great thing about it is Seth's ideas for the second one are sick. He comes from the world of episodic television so he knows how to tell the stories, in a way that most people don't."

Transformers 4 is set to open in June 2014.
