RUMOR: Transformers 4 Greenlit; Jason Statham Set To Take Over From Shia LaBeouf?

RUMOR: <i>Transformers 4</i> Greenlit; Jason Statham Set To Take Over From Shia LaBeouf?

It was bound to happen eventually. Now Shia LaBeouf has said he won't be back for another Transformers movie, the rumor mill claims that Rosie Huntington Whitely's boyfriend Jason Statham is set to take over...

According to Showbiz Spy, Jason Statham is being lined up to take over as lead character in the next Transformers movie. Apparently, the fantastic box office takings since the movie opened last Wednesday have convinced Paramount to move ahead with a fourth instalment, and the British star is their top pick! As usual, take the following (along with the apparent plans for a fourth movie) with a pinch of salt...



"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."


Starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Alan Tudyk, Ken Jeong, Patrick Dempsey, and John Malkovich, Tranformers: Dark of the Moon is out now!
