Updated: Megan Fox Out for Transformers 3 & New Love Interest for Sam Witwicky?
bwbm - 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.

Sonoma News is reporting that Paramount Pictures is casting local talent for the new Transformers Bumblebee: Brighton Falls film that has begun shooting in San Rafael, California recently. The report says production will continue along the North Coast with shooting scheduled for additional locations such as the Marin Headlands, Mare Island and Vallejo and a possible wrap in September at Santa Cruz, California. The casting call is looking for mostly younger talent as well as other roles and extras. Read the full details on the casting call below.
The Marin Independent Journal is reporting today that production for Transformers Universe: Bumblebee has begun in the Peacock Gap area, in San Rafael, California. The movie caught attention recently by taking a sizeable incentive from the state of California to film the entire movie within its borders. This leg of production is reportedly codenamed Brighton Falls, though whether that will relate to the content of the movie, such as the location it takes place in, is unknown. A photo from just outside the closed filming was posted with the article. You can find that mirrored below.
The new release of 2007's Leader Class movie Optimus Prime under the Transformers Tribute subline is now available for purchase in the US via Amazon. Like the Orion/Optimus Evolution 2 pack before it, this is apparently an Amazon exclusive. But, unlike the very unexpectedly reasonable price point of the 2 pack, Leader Optimus is currently listed at $79.99. But of course that does mean it qualifies for free shipping whether or not you're an Amazon Prime member. Is the very first movie Optimus with a fancy updated deco worth that to you? If so, hit the link in the full post below, and keep reading for a set of new stock photos of the toy.

Hailee Steinfeld, the first confirmed cast member and lead character in the upcoming Transformers Universe: Bumblebee, has shared on social media a quick behind the scenes photo of herself in wardrobe. On the instagram post, the photo has the caption, "Meet Charlie Watson", revealing to us the name of her character. Bumblebee recently boasted the addition of John Cena in a starring role, on the same day it was made known the movie's debut had been pushed back to December of 2018 from its original June premiere.

Confirming a job listing by Boulder Media earlier this week and long-ago reports of plans stemming from the fables TFCU Writers' Room, Hasbro announced in today's investor meeting that a CGI Transformers movie is in the works! Set in the current film continuity but with no firm release date, it is part of a larger commitment by Hasbro to release one animated movie a year. Keep reading for details!
