'Ted' star Mark Wahlberg says work has already begun on the film's sequel and the comedy caper will be 'sick'

Mark Wahlberg says 'Ted 2' will be "sick".

"After that I said, 'Dude, we have to work together again', and he said, 'I have a project you might be interested in'. That's how 'Transformers' came about."
