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?

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

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

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