"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."

As for TF4 itself, I figured there wold be 1, but I thought they might have waited 5-6 years. I was actually wondering if they would go the Indiana Jones route and wait 20 years for #4, with Bay and Shia coming back anyway.

I think he might be fun in a TF movie, but...not as a continuation of this series. First...there's no one left to kill unless the plot of TF-4 is "Hatchling Stomping". Or Unicron, who's always been a lame villain.
But as a totally new reboot, with a new director?
Yeah, I'd give it a shot.
HK, feels the urge to watch The Expendables again.

Probably the best comment Ive read here in a while. hahaha

I'd be very interested to see how this could pan out...It could be a very risky gamble, but if his part is right, it could work.
The best film I've seen him in is Death Race and considering the Transformers connections (Tyrese Gibson, Mustang, weapon-loaded vehicles destroying the crap out of each other, etc), it's the one film that's making me think Statham wouldn't be a bad choice...Hmm...
But we shall have to wait and see!
