Jason Statham Replacing Shia LaBeouf in 'Transformers'?

Jason Statham Replacing Shia LaBeouf in 'Transformers'?

Shia LaBeouf listens to music while walking his bike on Monday (October 24) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Reports recently surfaced that the 25-year-old actor might be replaced by Jason Statham once he leaves the Transformers franchise.

Jason spoke out about the rumors, telling MTV News, “You know, I don’t know how those things start.”

“You read them. Someone told me about it,” Jason – whose girlfriend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, starred in Transformers: Dark of the Moon – added. “[But] the Internet is a dangerous place. There’s a lot of stuff out there.”

    That would be great if it’s true!
    Finally, a REAL man taking over. Not a whiney, bratty douchebag.
    Good riddance Shia.

    I don’t know how I feel about that in one way I think it would be interesting to see but then I also think it would be a bad idea almost as worse as replacing Charlie Sheen with Ashton K

    I rather have Penn badgley replacing Shia and then Megan Fox coming back

    Oh please. First of all, Transformers 3 was the last one. Secondly, Jason Statham is totally wrong for the role. So I don’t believe any of this stuff.

    This has to be one of the weirdest and most bs filled rumors I have ever heard about one actor taking over for another.
    Jason although awesome wouldn’t be right for the franchise. This rumor sounds like it was started by Rose’s pr people because Jason and her are a couple. She is probably hoping the films continue and maybe thinks if her boyfriend Jason signs on then she has more films nailed down for sure. One problem Jason is too old and this would be a step down for Jason to take on. Not a step up. Also what if Rose and Jason broke up mid filming.. awkward.
    If they really want to move forward and make more films without Shia then they should either cast a new fresh faced actor or HEY here is a thought. Cast an actress in the lead role instead of always going for a male lead! You would have the hot chick appeal AND have a little edge to the franchise.
    It could take the franchise in a new direction and would be cool to see. They pretty much ruined the franchise with the second movie and although the third one was better it still couldn’t wash away the bad taste the second film left in people’s mouths. They should probably just give the Transformer’s films a break for about five years or so and then reboot them with new writers, new actors, new director and just keep the Transformer characters. Since they are what the whole thing is named after!!!
    This rumor is JUST WEIRD!!

    What an odd statement to make. Why didn’t he just say ‘no comment/not interested but flattered/interested and flattered’ instead of ‘the internet is a dangerous place’.
    He sounds crazy.
    Anyway if it is true, he shouldn’t take the role, MAJOR downgrade.

    I don’t think replacing Shia is what the franchise needs. Megan Fox was expendable, but you can’t get rid of the main character. I think Michael Bay is just looking for people to blame for his terrible job directing.
