Megan Fox dropped from Transformers 3!


megan fox transformers 3 Image Update: It’s official. Megan Fox won’t be returning according to a Paramount spokeswoman. No official reason why yet.

___

Some potential Transformers 3 drama has been reported on Deadline Hollywood. Apparently Paramount won’t be picking up Megan Fox’s option on Transformers 3 “and that it was ultimately director Michael Bay’s decision.”

If Fox has been dropped it must have been be a very recent (and last minute) decision. The actress was spotted on set doing previz shots (visualizing scenes before filming begins) just 2 weeks ago and Bay said in November that Megan had “a great part” in the next film.

If Megan has been dropped i’m sure we’ll find out why in good time. Some are suggesting that she may have been let go because of her digs at the director in the press, apparently referred to Michael Bay as a “nightmare” and “Hitler” during a few interviews last year. I doubt that will be the sole reason though, if it were Bay would have just eliminated her from the script from the start. It could be the case that Fox and Bay haven’t been getting along and the prospect of spending the next 5 months together doesn’t appeal to them.

Deadline say that:

Right now Bay et al are finishing up the script for the threequel and “giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story,” an insider tells me. Bay will start casting immediately for the new female co-star.

Thoughts?

    I don't think keeping Megan Fox onboard will save Transformers from plot holes. What's another hole in a block of swiss anyway?

      though the 2 characters had great chemistry in the first 2 I think t3 will spell disaster for the franchise. however with the way that bay has been turning transformers into a new fast and furious could also sign the death warrant for them too. Im sure Optimus and Megatron are sitting there ready to hang themselves right now

    What ever the problem is between Megan and Bay, get over it!!! Her character is a central part of the story line and what actress can step in and play Mikalia like she did? No one that I can think of has those looks and that body. Forget Angelina, she's a has been. The role is for a young, fresh actress. Sam, a new love interest? Won't work….Get over your ego Bay! I won't go see T3 without Megan! Neither will my children. It won't be a hit without Megan Fox. Plain and simple.

      Yeah!! That goes for me too!!

    There's no shortage of gorgeous young actresses out there, fear not. After all, very few people knew of Foxy Megan prior to Transformers, would it be so surprising to see another rising star come from this?

    As for plot holes, I can see some possibilities for resolving them, whether or not they'll be successful at it, I don't know. Time will tell.

    She’s a douchebag anyway…good riddance

  • dre

    She has been chosen as the worst actress, that’s why they don’t want her in the movie. Makes sense, cause who wants to have the worst actress in his movie? And be honest, she is a really bad actress, she can be missed!

  • Mrodriguezfan

    They should get Michelle Rodriguez!

  • piss off

    Couldnt care less. these films are shite and a third one wont magically make them good.
