Mark Wahlberg, who starred in last years “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” is set to return for the fifth installment of the franchise.

Wahlberg played Cade Yeager, a inventor and mechanic from Texas who was also extremely protective of his daughter, Tessa Yeager (Nicola Peltz). The movie grossed over $1.1 billion at the global box office and sparked another installment.

Now, this new film is set to be written Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Ken Nolan. Director Michael Bay hasn’t not been officially confirmed to return but he does remain the first choice to helm the franchise going forward.

There is currently no release date for the fifth film.
