Jason Statham to join Transformers franchise???

transformers21When a movie makes $375 million dollars on it’s opening weekend, there is little doubt that there will be a sequel in the works.

When the sun rose on Tuesday morning, the world found Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon as the number one movie of all time; grossing some $375 million dollars over the holiday weekend.

But for a studio knowing that this movie (which will make a billion dollars before it is all said and done) is the last of the franchise (as we know it), what with the announcements from lead Shia Lebouf and director/producer/explosion and slo-mo cam pornographer Michael Bay are not going to be returning for yet another sequel (because it’s such a burden making billion dollar movies that people will line up around the block to go see) this is none too good a news…

Something has to be done to keep the franchise up and running…

And this rumor certainly would do just that…

Jason_StathamShowbiz Spy is reporting that the rumor on the streets of Tinsel Town is  that dreamboat of note Jason Statham is being bandied about as the perfect lead for the next Transformers sequel, reporting that studio execs are dreaming of the brooding limey actor to lead the film franchise down the darker, grittier path they see the franchise heading.

Now, let’s be honest…

Considering that they are not even done counting the money this movie made during the past four days, it might be a little premature to start talking about castings for future sequels for a franchise already three films deep.

I mean, for all we know they might be planning a reboot of the franchise and have this amazing take all thought out where Selena Gomez, the cute but insecure Mexican lead, is stunned when seeing her little brother’s toy cars all come to life as they transformed  into 18 inch tall fighting robots. Hilarity, no doubt, ensues (including an over the top silly musical montage of the Transformers- eager to please their friend for helping them defeat the evil Mr. Belvedere (the neighborhood monster cat)- bake Selena a cake).

Or course it would…

I’d have to really work on my edging, as I will need to hold a nut for at least two and a half hours (if the previous films in the franchise are any indication)… But that’s fine… plenty of time between here and there…

But I personally doubt it will ever happen…

I mean the best reason for believing that the Powers that Be are considering the addition of the action star to the cast seem to be that he is currently bumping uglies with the blonde Megan Fox replacement, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Hardly the greatest of insider info…
