Age of Extinction
Updated: Megan Fox Out for Transformers 3 & New Love Interest for Sam Witwicky?

By bwbm on Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Updated: Ms. Fox says she it was her decision to leave Transformers 3, reports People, citing spokespeople for the actress. "She wishes the franchise the best."

Original Post:

According to Deadline Hollywood, citing an insider, Paramount Pictures has decided not to pick up the option on Megan Fox's contract for Transformers 3 and will begin to search for a new female lead immediately.

The gossip website reports that the decision was "ultimately" Director Michael Bay's decision.

Could Megan Fox be ousted by Michael Bay in favor of a new girl for Shia?

The same insider says that as Mr. Bay and Ehren Krueger are finishing up the script for the third installment of the giant robot franchise, "giving Shia [LaBeouf] a new love interest makes more sense for the story."

Here are two things that run counter to this new rumor:

First, Mr. Bay claimed last November that he won't be killing off Ms. Fox in the third film , although he has been known to lie.

Mr. Bay made these comments to calm the masses over Ms. Fox's comments comparing Mr. Bay to Hitler as well as criticizing his directorial skills.

Second and most recently, Ms. Fox was spotted in Los Angeles along with a Chevrolet Camaro all decorated like Bumblebee.

What do you think this all means? Will Mikaela Banes be taken out in the third film? Or will the character simply just go away?

still don't change the fact that she's hot. It's funny how presumtious and honestly arogant the haters are coming off as in these threads about pretty girls. If anything your exceeding the same type of traits your complaining about Rachael Taylor is a very pretty talented actress, a... read more

These people don't even have a solid script yet, I'm sure re-shooting is commonplace.

Agreed, pedantry aside, she played an uppity bitch who spoke without a damn bit of respect or cognition of the social situation in her voice. That would have been fine, considering that she was supposed to be a "nerd," except I also got an extreme feminist "I'm better than these ... read more

Oh my god, Im going to start a petition to get Michael Bay shot in the head. How fucking STUPID can you be!? Remember when he bitched about all the critics not liking ROTF and that no one takes his movies seriously. Its because he is so damn retarded! Its like he just hires random pretty pe... read more

Well, everyone else has voiced their opinion on Ms. Fox's departure, amongst other things, so I may as well chime in while it is still a current issue... Yeah, it's rant-time

Gotta agree with Liege, she's got tallent. They should have kept her so that there was still some acting going on.

Well the movie is like 95% eye candy anyways, so an actress with looks but no talent seems about right.

More Age of Extinction News
Deadline is reporting tonight that Hasbro Studios and Paramount have reassigned Akiva Goldsman away from writing the next Transformers movie. Apparently so pleased with his success leading the Transformers writers room, he will go on now to run a similar project for GI Joe, and then again for Micronauts when time comes to develop that property for film. Reportedly Goldsman will still have a supervisory role over the Transformers movie scripts, but will not be directly contributing to them himself. Keep reading for more on the new writers being negotiated and the original article link below.
Prime 1 Studios continues its series of extravagantly detailed - and plain old extravagant - statues of the Movie Transformers! Limited to a run of 1500, with 500 including an exclusive severed Brawl head, Ironhide sports LEDs in his head and his cannons, and will set you back $1600 USD. Luckily there's a nice gallery of photos available so you can give it a nice, thorough look-over before you buy - keep reading to see!
We have our first good out of package look at the surprise movie Sideswipe figure that appeared for order on RobotKingdom this weekend. Thanks to Jimmy Yu and Ck Wong on Facebook, we've got several nice shots of the figure, showing off its extensive silver paintjob. Between that and being the Dark of The Moon mold, this may be the best overall representation of movie Sideswipe out there. Now, if only we knew why it was given AOE Crosshairs' guns... Click through to see all the photos!
RobotKingdom has posted a listing for a brand new entry in the Movie Advanced Series, a limited edition release of Sideswipe. Based on the Dark Of The Moon Deluxe mold and for some reason including weapons from Age of Extinction Crosshairs, it becomes overall quite inexplicable! RobotKingdom has this as shipping on November 14, and as we have no word on other release avenues for this, it might be a good idea to jump on now if you're interested. Click through to see the in-package photos!
Vending Times has reported on the third iteration of Sega's Transformers: Human Alliance arcade cabinet. An arcade-style lightgun shooter, this new "Super Deluxe" version of the cabinet sports an 80-inch screen and mounted lightguns with recoil action. Said to be "about the size of a kid's bedroom," it should be pretty easy to tell if the version you see is the Super Deluxe. Keep reading for more details and a link!
