Megan Fox out of ‘Transformers 3’
It seems Hollywood is rife with debate on the news that token Tn’A actress Megan Fox will not reprise her award schwing worthy role in the Transformer Threequel. The debate? Whether Fox herself chose not to be a part of the Bay directed blockbuster, or if the ‘Godard of Explosions’ simply chose not to bring her back.
As reported by Yahoo! Movies and Deadline Hollywood it seems Boom-Boom-Bay was the one who chose not to bring back Fox, citing several issues leading to his decision. Could it be because the Juliard trained heroine of Transformers and Transformers 2: Revenge of the Robo-Rappin’ Robots equated working with Bay to working for Hitler? Perhaps. Maybe it was Fox’s insinuation during interviews for her Oscar nominated performance in Jennifer’s Actually An Evil Monster, But You’re Here Just To Look at Her Body that Michael Bay’s sets were “dangerous”, and that the director “[is] like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation…”
Bay left no comments on his website regarding the matter, leaving studio reps to communicate with the press. Reps from Paramount stated that “in order to take Shia’s character – Samuel James Witwicky — in a new
direction, it was better if Sam wasn’t tied down to a love interest.”
In response, Megan’s people told People Magazine that “it was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
When asked for a comment the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, added… “I will miss working with Ms. Fox. Her headlights put the spark back in my matrix. But we are confident the human leader Bay will provide us with a new human sacrifice for the all-spark for our next filmed venture.”
Look for Transformers 3: More Stuff Explodes and You Won’t Understand What’s Going On Anyways 3D to hit theaters and IMAXes in July of 2011.
