    Default [Debunked] Rumor: Jason Statham Being Considered to Take over TRANSFORMERS Franchise

    Take a grain of salt. Then find a way to make that grain into smaller grains and then take one of those micro-grains of salt and use it with this rumor: Jason Statham may be the new lead for the Transformers franchise. In between stories about Zac Efron still being “hot” for Vanessa Hudgens, and Ricky Martin being protected by the gay community, Showbiz Spy reports that the franchise could go in a “darker direction” and that Statham is being mentioned as the man who could take it there. It’s a franchise about giant robots who can turn into vehicles. How dark can it possibly get? Oh, and the fact that Statham is dating Rosie Huntington-Whiteley “would be an added bonus in marketing the movie.” Yep, that’s what Transformers fanboys care about: who’s dating who behind the scenes. Showbiz Spy reports that this information comes from a “Hollywood Insider”, which may as well mean that it comes from someone who lives inside the Hollywood area.

    This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. :lmao:lmao:lmao

    Nice try........Neeext.

    P.S. At least it's good that the new franchise is being discussed everywhere on the web. Maybe it'll come sooner than we think.

    It could potentially work if, as Starscream1017 said, he's a Soldier.... maybe in a role like Lennox's where he's commanding the human back up to the Autobots...

    though i think if there is any more TF movies.... they'll have to have a younger main lead IMHO....

    Actually... the idea of a single Autobot roaming the place.... unable to join up with Prime & the others for some strange reason..... is intriguing to me for some reason...

    Jason Statham was also considered for Dr. Effing Who too but you can kinda see how that went.
