Jason Statham Considered for "Transformers 4" Lead?

Posted: July 5th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jason Statham Considered for "Transformers 4" Lead?Submit Comment
"Transformers: Dark of the Moon" hit theaters over the weekend and is already a huge success. Both Michael Bay and Shia LaBeouf have no plans to return for a fourth installment, but Paramount Pictures won't simply let a major franchise die or even let too much time pass before getting to work on a new film.

ShowbizSpy has learned that the studio is not trying to convince LaBeouf to reprise his role, instead Jason Statham is being considered as the star of "Transformers 4."

"One of the stars being mentioned is Rosie Huntington Whitely's boyfriend Jason Statham," said an insider. "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."

Good! Finally someone that doesn't give Swai a reason to drop trou and wax his carrot during the "nooooooooooooo!" scenes by Shia LaDouchebag!

But still, the fact that they are doing Transformers 4: Optimus' Sloppy Seconds is rather a depressingly apparent reaction by Hollywrech to keep churning out more turds that Swai's mom when she defecates on her clients' chests during her "sessions".

I wouldn't bitch about Stathams acting. He knows his role in Hollywood, the only real action star we have left.

I would watch these movies if Statham was in them, Chev Chelios vs Megatron. f*cking A!
Cinemaisdead writes:
on July 5th, 2011 at 8:16:14 PM

Haha coz Stathams such a dark mysterious actor, I assume he'll be getting involved in more action riding Optimus in robot form, straddling his shoulders holding only a sling shot and a bag of rocks. Why not forget about a fourth film and start with some predictable tie-ins: Transformers vs Godzilla, Transformers vs Alien vs Predator, Transformers vs Michael Bay (and a bag full of explosions), Transformers vs Power Rangers...

@dirt

You aint wrong on that one, he says he doesn't mind doing all that action stuff and it's easy money plus lots of it.

And if he really does want to do more acting movies he can do British movies.





I'm ok with this, but it depends on the script, director and Paramount having the balls to make it go darker.

Man, you people are so slow. Boyscouts is gay? The HELL you say. Going on 30, makes unnecessarily gay comments and deliberately chose a name mocking an often raped group of children, specifically, the Boy Scouts of America.

As for Statham and Transformers, it'll never happen. Paramount'll change their mind and perhaps never even make a fourth. One thing is good news: no f*cking Bay, no f*cking *sshole Shia. Three films with those two butthole pricks. Now we get a chance to see something fresh, something without that douchebag screaming 'nononononononononono!' all throughout the film and no more of Bay's stylistically monotonous pan and zoom and flip approach to directing.

Oh, and yeah, no Statham. He's too damned old to appeal to the teenybopper brain-dead fans of this film franchise. Baybot lovers have to see some queer still in his diaper running around whilst various random sh*t combusts.

Swai-You guys make The Backdoor Boys seem less gay now and that's hard to do! The singer sounds like he's gargling marbles, was that in english? Look at your fag f*cking hair do, does daddy get a good grip on that at night when he plugs you up from behind?
Nihilistic Michael Maus writes:
on July 5th, 2011 at 10:56:58 PM

Knowing Swai's luck (and I am really hoping this is the case), he'll die from choking on a stiff flesh flute the day before a doctor announces to the world he's created the first successful penis transplant.

Talk about irony, hunh ?

@BadChad

Thanks. I've tried to be cool with this *sshole, but he's not funny, he's not creative and he's not even understanding that this is NOT REAL. It's merely commentary.


He just goes on and on about masterbation, homosexuality, paedophelia, necrophilia, arson, murder, etc. etc. etc. I can at least give Crusty Mustache or ChezLounge credit for trying to be creative or even f*cking funny.

This guy is just wearing out his f*cking welcome and sounds like he has a series of mental illnesses that need professional assistance in medically dealing. Or a lobotomy.

Either way, maybe we'd all can get some peace and quiet having to hear from the human backed up plumbing.

Swai scrawls (from the Point Break Remake thread):
on July 5th, 2011 at 9:21:47 PM

" He hates like every movie he is one of the biggest trolls on here seriously. Max theres a world outside your mothers house just keep that in mind. he is that retarded that he thinks theres nothing wrong with him. "

Ah, Hey Alex ... the toilet backed up again. Time to call the Roto Rooter man and unclog this turd from the comment site.

And by turd I mean buttnugget and when I mean buttnugget, everyone here knows it's code for S. W. A. I.

(I had to spell it out because I didn't want to hurt the kid's feelings.)

Wow. It's the Porch Monkey calling the Negroid black.

This coming from a man who's commented on this site about cutting faces off, calling in mafia, burning down houses .... go f*cking get therapy. NOW. You are a f*cking mental case and the sooner you're in a rubber room on meds with a full-on lobotomy, the sooner the world will rest better, Hitler Jr.

So in conclusion, Swai's a closeted homosexual who's sexually attracted to ChappedAss aka TanBum, loves Mein Kamph and roasting a good Jew now and then, feels he really looks good in his scarlet Grand Dragon sheet and hood, threatens people on the Internet, has no social redeeming value, is the lead c*cksucker in a local punk band with limited aspirations or abilities and basically wishes he could sacrifice his mother to the Devil, in the way he talks about other peoples families so much.

Swai = Closeted case retarded.

Maybe this time they stick to mythology a little more and actually have transformers from the toyline appear. Finally have Galvatron or Unicron come to earth and wreak havoc. Of course the studio will go with a new director that would be cheap so they can cash in on profits. Michael Bay, Steven Spielbergo, Shia Ledouche will be producers.

'How does Stathum end up getting the low budget, poor storyline and poorly directed films and La Doof gets the better opportunities when Stathum is the better actor' --- ahh, because Shia is willing to take a man's penis inside his body.

And what Dirt said. I'd be way more interested in this 'franchise' were Statham involved.

I guess Shia is refuting this rumor:

Transformers 3 was awesome, better than Transformers 2 but not that great as the first one.

With Shia LeBeouf and Michael Bay gone, I think Jason Statham will be great as the main lead.

Lucky Bay didn't return, if he did then he would got knock the crap out of by Statham on set, for forcing his girlfriend to walk in the middle of the desert and if she didn't, Bay would had leave her in the desert.

Reboot the series and make sure that Shia LeBeouf isn't in it for a long time.

Yes I have seen all of this films and my conclusion is still that he can't act, well he can, just the same character, which is essentially who he is, so it doesn't count as acting.

Here's a thought... why don't they just not use "actors" and make the movie with just the Transformers. Personally I think they should go with starting a new set up, using the plot from the recent game War for Cybertron. I could really care less if there were any humans involved at all.

Simply because i love both franchises.I dont need to justify the combo name to u or any one else .Its a name i chose.I cant expect u to lyk HP or TF coz thats u and ds is me.that simple.Therefore if u think TF is not a gud franchise,i wil respect that.But where you start u call me names simply because of a debate over movies,you dont deserve any respect whatsoever

You ever notice how nobody ever even acknowleges your, *ahem*, "jokes"? You try so hard, and it's adorable. One of these days you may actually be able to come up with something that doesn't sound like a thirteen year old wrote it in geometry class.

No matter how hard you try, nobody on here is going to think you're cool, Bandy. I know that may shock you, but it's true. Now go fondle yourself some more and try to stop the shoplifters at Hot Topic with your fleshlight.

I don't get what all the hate over Shia LaBeouf is. I think he is a pretty decent actor if most of what he does and I honestly won't be interested in a Transformers 4 if he isn't it. I wasn't a big fan of the first two movies but the third was surprisingly enjoyable.
