While he'll be featuring in the self-described "biggest movie of 2014" with "Transformers: Age Of Extinction," the always busy Mark Wahlberg has a number of other movies percolating that are smaller and much more interesting (at least for us).

According to a Deadline report, Paramount Animation is about to get serious about the cartoon game. After winning the Best Animated Feature Oscar last year for "Rango," and letting their distribution deal with DreamWorks Animation lapse, the studio pledged to seriously commit to original animated product, the first of which was an as-yet-untitled sequel to "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie." Now they're going for an even bigger project: "Monster Trucks," a $100 million live action/animated hybrid to be directed by Chris Wedge ("Ice Age," "Epic") that Deadline describes as being the first in a "'Transformers'-like franchise." Our guess is that, with a movie called "Monster Trucks," the trucks are going to turn into actual monsters. Why wouldn't they?
