According to Showbizspy, Jason Statham may be taking over as the lead actor in the next Transformers Movie. Coincidentally enough, he is also dating Rosie Huntington Whitely, who was in the recent movie:“One of the stars being mentioned is Rosie’s boyfriend Jason Statham,” says a Hollywood 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.”
Darker direction? Do you think Statham has what it takes to step in Shia Labeouf’s shoes?
