Shia LaBeouf has pulled out... and we don't mean of Megan Fox.

The actor has said he will not return to the Transformers franchise if a fourth film is made, leaving open the obvious question: Who will take his place?

One name under consideration, according to Show Biz Spy? Jason Statham.

“It’s clear the franchise still has huge potential but with a new leading man capable of taking Transformers in a new, darker direction," a source says. "Jason could be just the man to do that.

Statham is also dating Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, which would be an "added bonus in marketing the movie," this insider adds. Think he's the right man for this special effects-laden job?
