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:

I have to agree with Bay right now (and possibly for the first time ever) that we need to see and appreciate the movie that came out a week ago before looking 2 years into the future.

I have to agree as well, although I still want this storyline to continue, it is too early to confirm a new film. But we all know micheal bay isn't the most trustworthy person...

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.

I personally never put any hope in this rumor anyways. I'm w/ Michael on this one: enjoy the new one we got for a while. We can't be that anxious for the next movie that the hype on the 3rd one hasn't died down yet before rumors of the 4th. I think Jason's name came up only because of his relationship w/ Rosie anyways. To be honest, I can't see him doing the movie.

I can see a 4th coming because of the way it ended. The never showed Dempsey's character after he was shocked and you know they always show the bad guy dead.

Also you still have Deceptagons around the world, the ones that were staging the piliers.

There are also other Decepticon leaders besides Megatron and Shockwave around too. Plenty of story left to tell. But I still don't see Jason Statham being in any of them.

He seems to have something few new actors have anymore: integrity and a sense of the craft. Now if only he had acting talent. :lol:

Because he isn't done yet. He's still doing the press stuff and hasn't been replaced yet.Just because he's not filming doesn't mean he's out. Plus, do you think everybody stops talking to each other afterwards? He's probably still talking to Don Murphy and Spielberg about DOTM. And whoever does get picked to replace him with probably talk to him about unused ideas from the first three. It's not like Terminator or Alien were every new director can reset the franchise when then hop on for their installment. Bay is stuck with this to a small degree until the end of this version of the franchise. Hell, for most Smallville and Superman Returns, Richard Donner was never left alone!

The way Sam clocked Dempsey with that pipe, I don't think he's coming back. At least, let's hope not. And yes, there is definitely plenty of story left to tell. Maybe we can get ARCEE back in the story line. It couldn't hurt to have a foxy female Autobot and an Evil Female Decepticon in the story line.

What I read:

"Stop talking about about Jason Statham and talk more about me and my great movie." - Michael Bay

I think he'd be a perfect fit. Michael Bay + crazy explosions + robots + Statham? He could play Chip Chase and it'd still be awesome.
