If you have high blood pressure you might want to avoid this rumor, because it comes with a rather sizable pinch of salt. ComicBookMovie.com
is reporting that Transformers 4 is rumored to have already been greenlit and action star Jason Statham is in consideration for the new male lead. Shia LaBeouf has stated on several occasions that Dark of the Moon
would be his last Transformers film, and as many of you already know Jason Statham is romantically tied to DOTM's new leading lady Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Does this connection add validity to this rumor? If this came to fruition would it be a continuation or the existing storyline or a reboot? Only time will tell, but for the moment this should most definitely be treated as a rumor.
"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."
