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.

Once again we're on the verge of a growing number of production side tidbits for a Transformers movie. Website My Entertainment World has updated with a very brief listing for Transformers 5, revealing when filming for the next movie is due to begin. With the publicity around the Writers' Room project recently we can at least hope that there will be a completed script by the time they fire up the cameras, though absence of such certainly hasn't stopped production in the past... Click through to check it out!
The Hollywood Reporter has reported that a live-action Transformers event called Transformers Live will open in China in 2017. The event is said to "be a cross between an action-adventure spectacle, a theme park attraction and a theatrical show," and is expected to feature custom robotics among other features.

Universal Studios Hollywood is gearing up the Chinese New Year with celebrations featuring Lunar New Year celebration that begins nect Saturday, January 30 to continue through Sunday, February 14, 2016. The celbration on the Universal Plaza will feature special decorations, performances and Megatron Speaks Mandarin from Transformers the Ride-3D as the star of the show.

Just as Michael Bay always comes back to do the next Transformers movie, it seems now a reliable trend that Michael Bay will choose Chicago as a shooting location. Maybe he just enjoys Portillo's, and I couldn't blame him for that, but whatever the cause it sounds like Chicago will see more robot action. In an interview with WGN Radio's Dean Richards focused on Bay's movie 13 Hours, the subject of Transformers and a return to Chicago come up briefly. We have a summary of the relevant portion of the interview. Click through to take a look, and to get a link back to the original if you want to hear more about 13 Hours.
Thanks to EDFHOBBIES who offers a first look at the 2016 Chevy Camaro 6th generation car release. While this one has been customized somewhat, it cannot be denied that Chevy is continuing to how love for Transformers Bumblebee namesake. According to the post, the black stripes and Autobot symbols ,and other custom touches were added after delivery. So we don't know if this is an official Transformers model, but it is still a Bumblebee to the owner and many fans.
