Megan Fox: Out of Michael Bay’s Transformers 3

Megan Fox‘s contract has not be renewed for Micheal Bay‘s Transformers 3. Paramount is apparently not picking up the option in Megan Fox’s contract for the third Transformers franchise film. Industry insiders point to this as one of the causes:

Megan promoted Jennifer’s Body in Wonderland magazine by accusing Bay of wanting to “create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for.” That ignited a firestorm of criticism of her.

Previously on the Jimmy Kimmel show, Megan Fox dissed Bay.

The first time I ever met him, I was 15, and I was an extra on Bad Boys 2. We were shooting this club scene, and they brought me in, and I was wearing a stars and stripes bikini and a red cowboy hat, and six-inch heels. And they took me to Mike and he approved it. And they said, ‘You know, Michael, she’s 15, so you can’t sit her at the bar and she can’t have a drink in her hand.’ So his solution to that problem was to then have me dancing underneath a waterfall getting soaking wet. And that’s… At 15 and I was in tenth grade. So that’s sort of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works.

Unperturbed by the casting decision, Bay and team are apparently

finishing up the script for the threequel and “giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story,” an insider tells me.

Its seems Megan Fox Transformers 3 Set Photos, sourced by TheMovieBlog, was inaccurate. This is a lesson to everyone in Hollywood that is not Tom Cruise. Keep. Your. Mouth. Shut. Do not bite the hand that made you famous worldwide. The biggest film of next summer and Megan Fox is out of it. Great career move, well it wasn’t a move. It was an axing. What do you think of Bay’s decision? Who would you like to see as the new female lead in the Transformers franchise? My vote is for the model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley but that’s just me.

  • Yay! She's out. Now if they just kill off Shia's xter we'll be all set. It'd be better to be w/o a woman. Heaven forbid Sam try and form a buddy bond with an actual Transformer.

  • I know, like on the tv show.

    Everyone in Hollywood can be replaced. Just because she’s hott doesn’t mean she can talk crap. I would have done the same. They aren’t friends. That’s her boss. And in the real world when you smart off to your boss you get canned. I don’t see how she thought that was appropriate at all. As far as who replaces her… Who cares. Shia and the transformers are what make the movie anyways.

  • “Shia and the transformers are what make the movie anyways.”

    Good point.
