Michael Bay has posted on his website Shootfortheedit.com in regards to the rumor of Jason Statham being the new leading man for the next possible Transformers film.

He states: "No completely false. No 4 th Transformers movie even exists right now. Thus no one is being considered at this time. How bout, just enjoy the movie out right now."

Statham in transformers? Hahahahahahahahahahaha
Optimus Prime


I don't expect any real news on another Transformers movie for five years or so.
TRANS+CRAZY
I just hope that this is just a rumor.
KnightHawkke
boy, they didn't waste a micro second did they.
TheTFReview
Hmmm.
FanimusMaximus
Didn't TF3 just come out a week ago?
Ace Convoy
ummm


reboot plesase

That sounds about as plausible as Cher as Catwoman and Eddie Murphy as Riddler. Rumors which began weeks after The Dark Knight and PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVED THEM!
darthrage

oh well, it is a news and RUMORS page
ElectricPrada09

It is a rumor
Dr. Prime
I don't know....what size shoes does each of them wear?



Sorry, I couldn't help it

In all seriousness, I would be ok with it. We still have to see "what new direction" they go with the franchise in the movieverse. If it is "dark" so be it. I think the key factor will be who directs it really. I am a little nervous about who takes over for Bay
Cranckasional
NO, JUST NO. DO WE REALLY want HUMAN sex scenes in a Transformers movie??? REALLY Transformers Rated R????? This dude should STICK to his action movies and thats it. I Personally do NOT want another Transformers movie in a few years. Just wait until Directors get better technology and everything, please DO NOT rush it..... NO JUST NO, THIS MUST BE A BAD JOKE.
Wheeljack94
i actually think it would be cool. he can play as a construction worker named sparkplug. and a resurected wheeljack could be his co star. i like the sound of this. i know this will never happen.
nametaken
i dont mind him.
i dont want it to turn into a typical stratham type film though.
that would be awful.
Radar prime
No more transformers michael bay did a really good job i dont want some one else messing it up

Darker direction? Do you think Statham has what it takes to step in Shia Labeouf's shoes?
hehe, Funny.

This ^

Plus, a storyline that would see the character of Carly dating anyone else apart from Sam couldn't work after TF3, and there is no way he could actually play the same character.

Ooh...I hope he gets to drive a car and kick people!!!

LOL, you do realize you said someone else rather than just someone. suggesting you feel Bay did a good enough job messing it up.

Another movie where Jason Statham plays Jason Statham...oh boy.
Shin-Gouki
Nope, just hit the reboot button and call me in 3-5 years

There's no way they can be thinking about cast for Transformers 4 yet, the DVD hasn't even come out for DOTM.

EDIT: Actually, if these producers are huge money grubbers, the probably have started thinking about the future sequels already. I think Don Murphy said that there would be a second trilogy, not a reboot? If this rumour is indeed true, I'm worried we might have producers on our hands who will run this movie series into the ground for money.
Opticron Primal
Oh god, the amount of punniness in the front page article's title....

Also, darker direction?....What, were visible sprays of red oil after every near to fatal blow to a Cybertronian, humans being desintegrated and a flaming skull bouncing down the street too light and happy?
Nerdicon
Wow, is it April First already?

I don't know shit about movies, actors, actresses & such. I'm not some Hollywood Insider that obsessively has to know when such and such (insert name of celebrity) so much as takes a dump or what not. So I don't know about Jason Statham or what role if any he could play in any future Transformers film. The franchise could easily move forward without Shia and Michael into a 4th film. The trilogy/reboot thing is a fad and Transformers have surpassed that marker after 27 years of existence. I'd be happier with a continuation as Transformers has too many parallel universes anyway.

"Itís 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."
So the carryover human character would be CARLY?

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

No. Loosing Shia Labeouf kills the whole "boy and his car" relationship with Bumblebee for a potential fourth movie, and that relationship is BIG in toy sales because that essentially forces Bumblebee to get a lot of screen time. Which Hasbro likes, because that makes the BB toys sell, and Chevy likes because BB is their big-ticket sportscar seller (they make the BB-influenced Camaro version as a special after package for an added 2K+ or something on the price). Plus, Sam is as important to the movies as Bumblebee, since the movies tend to tell the story more from his perspective than from the robot's perspective. We've followed him up through high school and his first encounter with the Cybertronians, then to college, and then finally the point where he at last gets a job and the new girlfriend. Trying to continue the story with the main human character who is the LEAST connected to the TF's being the only major one that returns is a recipe for disaster.

ok you got me there michael bay kind of messed up transformers i wanna see JJ abrams, james cameron and steven speilberg do trasformers.
Autobot_Wall-E
For a 4th movie? No. Reboot? Maybe.
Wrecker217
i thought these things had too much action already.
LigerPrime
I'm taking this news with a pinch of salt. Whoever stars in the next movie, I hope there will be less er, "toilet" humor and less focus on the military.

dude, it made 400 mil opening weekend on it's way to probably close to a billion dollers (+DVD/Blu-ray and Merchandise)

there'll be another sequel in either 2 or 3 summers. Hopefully with a better director and script.

and I'd love to see Statham in it as much as anyone, that dude has managed to make some pretty terrible movies totally enjoyable to me.
Josh
i like how the thread title says he's gonna *feel* his shoes


Statham: "oooh yes...those feel very nice"
chrisr291
Could he step into Shea la Bouff's shoes LMAO!

Jason Statham would kick some serious ass in Transformers


FYI, new director, please don't make the Humans as powerful as they are now.
Maximo Prime
what is statham doing "feeling" shia's shoes? Fetish?
Radioactive Ravage
Tee hee.

Oh god let it NEVER happen.

I hope he plays a fugitive cannibal who is needed by a detective in order to help locate and capture Optimus Prime before he murders another robot's face.

Optimus Prime walks up to a large pit in the ground

Decepticon Drone: "Please...Please...let me go"

Optimus Prime: "It rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again."

Hey, how about this idea for the reboot: "Screw the humans!"
TFfan08
Fuck you, Jason Statham, we still have Lennox
JoeHavok
Just a rumor at this point. Until, we have a director, and there's casting taking place, a lot of things can happen, change, and then change again. With that said. It's safe to say there will be another Transformers movie without Shia and Bay.

I agree with you 100%.

TF4 should be live-action Beast Wars.




Seriously, that would be awesome.

For what its worth, I think he'd do fine in Transformers if they took the tone a bit darker like the Batman reboot (Nolan's). My Question is...if its a second sequel...i dont really see where they can go with characters and story( and not be awkward). If its a reboot ...anything is possible, If they are talking about him just being the voice of someone....let the speculation begin. Who would he be?
Batman
I love Jason Statham, I hope it happens.

Not to mention Philip Seymour Hoffman to play the Penguin, lol
Grimlockimus
Beast Wars + Speilburg + Michael Clarke Duncan as Rhinox + Scott Mcneil = Pure Win.


Please make this happen.


Anyway, I doubt TF4 news would be this quick, but I do believe a TF4 movie is inevitable, Pirates got a 4th movie, Shrek got a fourth, Transformers will get a fourth.

Let's have an all British, Wreckers based movie! Fuck Prime and Bee, let's have Transformers: Lock Stock and Two Smoking Decepticons, Starring Vinnie Jones as Straxus, dredged up from the bottom of the Thames.
