Jason Statham in Transformers 4? Nope
I didn't even want to waste my time writing this or your time reading it but sadly ShowbizSpy's link bait article claiming Jason Statham (The Transporter, The Expendables) is up for a role in Transformers 4 has popped up on at least 4 websites that I am aware of. It is complete nonsense that isn't even worth repeating. A Hollywood insider told the site, "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."
Translation: A bunch of guys were standing at some studio office talking about how hot Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked in DOTM, which likely led to them talking about how her boyfriend Jason Statham would be perfect for a role in the next movie but he only likes dark stories with flawed "heroes". Someone heard this and called the website who thought "hey this will get a lot of hits!" and thus a BS story like this is born.
The movie isn't even a week old. I doubt Paramount and Hasbro has even decided if they want a Transformers 4 or a reboot much less who is going to replace Michael Bay as director. With rare exceptions of the $20 million per movie actor range sequel with existing cast remaining in place, casting decisions are not made until a director has been chosen. No sequel decision = no director = no actor = no Jason Statham. This kind of talk is literally designed to get people to click a link or post a link to their site for what they know even as they post it to be complete BS. I am purposely not linking to their nonsense story as would prefer to not encourage link bait crap like this.
