Here's a bit of unexpected - yet awesome - news.
According to Deadline Hollywood and Variety, Megan Fox has been axed from "Transformers 3."
That's right, never again will we Fox running in slo-mo with a confused look on her face as to what's happening around her. How will we survive?!
So Paramount won't be bringing Fox back, but that actually wasn't the studio's decision. Apparently it was "ultimately" director Michael Bay's decision, which now makes us wonder if this is retaliation for all those mean comments Fox made about Bay during the release of "Transformers 2" last summer.
If you didn't know, Fox was quoted as saying, "I really wish I could go loose on this one. He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is." (Head to Entertainment Weekly for the whole blow-by-blow of that rant and even more crazy Megan Fox quotes).
Hmm, I wonder why Bay didn't invite her back for a third round...
So can "Transformers 3" survive with out Megan Fox? While some people might want to see her, I'm sure many fans of the franchise are there for the robots. Most likely Mikaela is in the script that they're currently shooting with, but hell, a little scribble here, a name change there - shouldn't take long for Shia to have a new girlfriend.
In fact, Deadline and Variety both report that the script is being reworked on to give Shia a new love interest. While I don't plan on seeing "Transformers 3" in theaters after the debacle that was the second (I didn't really enjoy the first either and tried giving the franchise a second chance), I'm sure all this will just add to the confused mess that the plot will definitely be.
For some more Megan Fox fun, head to Latino Review to read a spoof Michal Bay letter to Fox about why he isn't bringing her back (it's pretty epic).
BTW - Fox is trying to go around saying it was her decision to leave the franchise (actually not even her, just her reps). This might turn out to be what everyone says so no one's feelings get hurt, but we know the truth. No one wants to to with her, plain and simple.
What are your thoughts on Megan Fox being kicked out of "Transformers 3"?
