Jason Statham For Transformers 4?

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

JASON Statham is being lined up to star in the next Transformers movie.

Huge opening weekend box office returns have convinced studio bosses to green light Transformers 4 but with a new male lead.

And Jason, who’s dating Rosie Huntington Whitely, is said to be the hot favorite.

“One of the stars being mentioned is Rosie’s boyfriend Jason Statham,” says a Hollywood insider.

“It’s clear the franchise still has huge potential but with a new leading man capable of taking Transformers in a new, darker direction. Jason could be just the man to do that and his relationship with Rosie would be an added bonus in marketing the movie.”

Rosie recently revealed how her movie role bought her closer to Jason.

“He’s extremely proud and he’s extremely excited to see the movie,” she said . “I love his films and now I get to love doing action too. So that’s something that we definitely share in common now.”

    Absolutely will not watch it. The problem these producers of box office hits don’t understand is that people love how the whole cast relates the movie to them. Because Spielberg & Bay got theirs panties in a bunch about Megan Fox, the eliminated one portion of the whole. Rosie was ok but they could have used a female Autobot for that performance. It misses Fox’s and LaBeouf’s give and take. Jason Stratham is a balding moron who probably planted this story.

    Statham is old, bald, ugly and looks likes he has done enough drugs and booze. If Statham gets hired, maybe Paramount can edit his face into a young, handsome, talented actor like Shia. Hey Paramount, pay Shia more money, or at least hire a younger all american kid type.

    fariboz is a balding guy, of course he would like statham.

    Are u people serious?!!!! Hiring this bald ugly guy to take Shia’s place?!!!!

  • alfrida

    i like Jason but his totally wrong, old and too macho and something off about him being in this movie; transformers and to replace Shia is a HUGE mistake, I`m a devoted fsn of Transformers and I hate this., just keep Shia give him extra money he deserve it. Anyway from the transformers franchise they, the paramount will recieve plenty of money back and way above profit so keep Shia pleaaseeeeeeee


    I wouldn’t watch the movie because if Shia quits the whole transformer story is messed up because the story was mostly concerning sam not anybody else not SAMs girlfriend or SAMs parents but Sam mostly him you would get to know and see more and the autobots and Decepticons And it I wrong enough to change Megan but now Shias turn they should have left how it was and they should have never screwed up in the first place so pppppppppplllllllllllleeeeeeeeaaaaaassssseeeee keep Shia LaBeouf just to tell you a whole bunch of people said they wouldn’t watch transformers 4 so the ratings are going to way down instead of up because Shia wasn’t going to be there so get your stuff together and don’t change any characters :) Emily SAM G P.S I’m sorry if I misspelled anything.

    Wow Jason Statham really scored….

    Dark of the Moon is Shia’s last movie. If they are to do another one, Statham isn’t it. Totally wrong choice. How about Haley Joel Osment? He’s a fantastic actor/voice actor and actually can act. Fuck Shia. He’s a real douche in person anyways ( i’ve met him twice in hollywood.) but i think if they want a new lead male role, Haley Joel Osment is numero uno on my list.

    No please dont ruin the transformer franchise! They already blew megan fox out of it bt nt shia!

  • Jesse

    I could see Statham in the next Transformers film. He would be absolutely perfect! Anyone else who loves Jason just as much as me should check out his new film Blitz.

    no way i love transformers and i cant see an old man playing shia part he brings the whole line between the autobots and humans together maybe statham as a soldier or something but you need a young kid who wants to be with the autobots and help out
