I love the movies, DOTM was amazing, but for Primus' sake people, GIVE THE FRANCHISE A REST. The third and seemingly final movie has only just come out - why start talking about a reboot already? Are Hasbro really that desperate for the movies? Start the reboots in a few years time, then I'll listen.

If Jason Statham is being considered then I would take that as a indication that whatever they choose to do next, it will have far less comedy and slapstick in it.

Yes I have, and I don't know if I would call Jason Statham and Amy Smart bumping uglies in the middle of a crowded street comedy or slapstick. I've also seen everything else that he's been in. I'm not basing what I said just on the two Crank movies.

Statham is also in The One with Jet Li and also in Ghost of Mars with Ice Cube.

Been in many other movies such as The Mechanic and also Transporter Trilogy.

Statham would be ideal to replace Shia cause TF 4 if indeed a new 2nd Trilogy would be in need of something new, something diffrent.

For people crying about it having new characters or being darker duh of course it is cause it will be like how Star Wars and the preqeul trilogy is new darker tone and new characters.

New director of cource Mr. Bay did a fantastic job bring Transformers to the big screen but of course the new guy will have big shoes to fill in replacing Mr. Bay.

I was quite pleased with all 3 films I even enjoyed ROTF and saw all 3 movies at the movies saw ROTF in IMAX not 3D but saw DOTM in 3-D.

I am a Generation 1 original and it is my 25th anniversary being with Transformers and I look forward to this new 2nd Trilogy.

I knew they was going this way cause of the way DOTM ended it sets up for another trilogy easily.

New characters and a new stroryline. Remember the universe of Transformers is massive and they can use a wide arrange of things to make another trilogy.

The Cyber Planet Keys, The Key To Vector Sigma, Mini-Cons, Targetmasters, Headmasters, Triplechangers, Power-Links,
Alpha Trion, Vector Prime, Scorpinok, Zarak, etc.

New characters - Sixshot, Ultramagnus, Rodimus to replace Optimus Prime, Kup, Springer, Slipstream, Thundercracker to replace Starscream and Galvatron to replace Megatron.

Galvatron could be like his older Brother or his mentor sort of how Sentinel Prime is to Optimus but Galvatron would be Megatrons mentor.

Statham is awesome he is an excellent choice to replace Shia cause this new Trilogy would be darker and more action pack and Statham could easily handle this franchise and work will with Carly.


Bring it on I am curious to see how the new Trilogy will be handled but I dont expect TF 4 until 2014.

Not bashing your ideas. I agree with most of them. But this already happened. The Fallen was Megatron's "Sentinel Prime". Why he called him Master and bowed to him.

Worst example ever.
The OT is far darker than the prequel trilogy:
NH: - You can't top destroying Leias homeworld in front of her eyes in terms of darkness... And then Luke loses his mentor before his own eyes.
ESB: - Han frozen into carbonyte while his freinds need to watch it over; Vader cutting down his own sons hand before telling him he is Lukes father...
RoJ: - Any scene in Jabbas palace - hell, the rancor and the original sarlacc look like they stepped out of a horror movie (while the updated sarlacc looks like it came from little shop of horrors); Yoda, and a lot of ewoks dying...

The darkest moments I can think of in the PT are all in RotS, the biggest maybe the jedi massacre - but Lucas took a lot of weight from that part of the movie by making the movie-featured background of the biggest jedis nonexistent.

I'd bet that this is nothing more than a rumor someone started for fun or because someone was too eager to believe it.

But if it were true, best case scenario is Transformers: Glock, Spock and Two Smoking Cannons. The evil Glockman, a giant robot that turns into a 40-foot handgun, teams up with the aging Dr. Spock to take over the universe. But alas, the heroic Rustyskin is somehow revived from a pile of dust by the GoBots, and threatens to defeat the bad guys with his giant dual arm cannons! Whose guns can make the biggest bang? Find out in theaters!

Worst case scenario is Transformers: Spark Attack! Unless the heroic Best First gets a direct jolt to his spark every 60 seconds, he will die and the evil Liarcons will take over the universe! How many ways can he get shocked in two hours? Find out in theaters!

Either way I can't see it being a good thing, though it's possible the right director and writers could make me change my mind. I just doubt that the right director would pick Statham.

I'm not so sure it'd work.

Jason Statham is all about machismo and 80's style action movies. TF is all about the robots and CGI. He'd be vying with TF's for the role of the hero.

Shia worked as a protagonist in Bay's TF movies because he's the hapless kid. The role of the hero and warriors are left to the Autobots. Sure, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson were supposed to be the macho hero types, but they didn't steal the limelight from the Autobots.

To my mind at least, the biggest technical problem with a live action TF movie is the need of a human protagonist, without said protagonist being given too much importance or more emphasis than the Transformers. IMO, Statham is too much a a screen presence to fit into a TF movie without clashing with the TF's in terms of importance.

This is true. I can imagine Statham complaining about being second fiddle to a "Bunch of Robots". The only way it might work is if he plays the role that Duhammel played in the three movies and they found some new "hapless kid" to be the main human character. Wasn't that how it was in the G1 cartoon series (Hapless kid as main character)? I doubt this rumor is true. DOTM only came out last week end. Give it a few years of peace and quiet before the Decepticons and their new "human allies" start working on some plan to bring Megatron back or whatever it may be.

Yeah but then who would play Wreck-Gar?

As for Statham, while he has been in some terrible movies, I like him. He'd certainly be a massive change from Shia. I could definitely see the franchise taking a much darker turn with him in the lead role. And if anything, the movies would become even more testosterone-heavy and action-crammed.

The only role that makes sense for Statham to play is as the Military guy (Duhammel's character or something similar). Statham isn't a "hapless kid". They could eliminate the "hapless kid" character, but Statham easily fills a military guy role. What would make the whole thing screwy and make almost everyone cringe is if they make his "Car/transformer" an Audi A8 or BMW 7 series. EVERYONE would be howling "OH NO" at that.

I could almost see the new director having fun with a Transporter homage/parody by pairing him with an Audi or BMW in a scene, with him in a black suit and leather driving gloves.

Sorry Statham fans, but it sounds like any hope you may have placed in the "Jason Statham in TF4" rumor has been lost. Director Michael Bay caught wind of the rumor, and has promptly put it to rest. He posted the following in his Shoot for the Edit forum:

because as with all things michael bay, all michael bay cares about is michael bay, if you're talking about TF4 you're not talking about TF3 which means you're not talking about him.
