The new “Transformers” movie is about to make its premiere this week in the United States. While the cast is promoting it, Mark Wahlberg suddenly expresses his desire to stop acting in the movie. It seems like the movie has grown weary of Transformers, too.

Mark Wahlberg recently promoted his new movie, “Transformers: The Last Knight”. It looks like it will also be the last one he will be doing. After talking about what the new movie is all about, Wahlberg then said that his is last “Transformers” film because he wants to get his life back. He revealed that Michael Bay is already aware of this and that the director has also vowed to Wahlberg that it would be the latter’s last movie in the franchise.

Wahlberg explained that he has done enough movies in the “Transformers” franchise. He said he had a great time doing the new film but he wanted to end his run with the franchise in a bang. He admits he had a good run with the franchise but he still wants to make other movies.

The actor revealed that working on the movie took a lot of his time since he had to at least allot five months to get into the perfect physical condition for a “Transformers” movie. Wahlberg was not the first lead actor to throw in the towel after acting in a few movies in the said franchise. Shia LaBeouf was the first lead in the “Transformers” live action movie franchise and he quit after a few sequels, realizing that there weren't any more angles his character can explore.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” is the fifth movie installment in the live-action movie franchise by Michael Bay and Paramount Pictures. Another sequel is in the works and it has been slated to release on June 28, 2019. A Bumblebee spinoff has also been announced and it is planned to release in June 2018.
