The suggestion isn’t a huge leap. The current third film’s female lead, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is the real life girlfriend of Statham and would likely come back for the fourth film if he were involved.
Their source claims “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.
I had no idea dude was dating a Victoria’s secret model that’s in the worldwide smash hit known as Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Who else knew but me? I didn’t think it possible but there’s yet more excitement to exploit from this franchise that even Michael Bay has yet to uncover. The idea of a Bad-Ass Statham working with Tyrese and co. as they scatter around giant robots pretending that they’re making a difference makes a difference in my outlook in a 4th entry. I can’t believe it. I’m ALREADY excited about a 4th one now. Here’s hoping this rumor somehow survives and becomes a reality.
