Although Shia LaBeouf starred in the first three installments of the franchise, according to the Hollywood Reporter, there's a reboot for the fourth installment and who better to boot it up than Mark himself?

Director Michael Bay indicated on his website, “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."
