Shia and Michael Bay might be out, but after the money Transformers: Dark of the Moon has made thus far, it's no secret that a fourth film is most likely in the works!
Although nothing is official, sources close to production have revealed that studio bosses are looking for a new male lead for the project gets a green light, and none other than Jason Statham, who's currently dating the franchise's latest addition, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, is at the top of the list!
The insider explains:
“One of the stars being mentioned is Rosie’s boyfriend Jason Statham. 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.”
We actually think he wouldn't be a bad choice to breathe some much-needed life into this franchise!
The special effects and action sequences have certainly improved with each of these movies, but frankly, that's about it!
We say the more badass the protagonist, the better!
What do U think?? Do U think Jason would be good for Transformers??
