While it’s not totally clear whether she jumped or was pushed, everyone seems glad that Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3. Initially, blogger Nikki Finke announced that Paramount decided to give Shia LaBeouf a new love interest in the next sequel, presumably one who wouldn’t compare director Michael Bay to Hitler after the shoot (“[it] makes more sense for the story,” said her source). A rep for Miss Fox responded “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best,” but Finke has already called the rebuttal a “pantload”—which is still a smaller pile than the last Transformers movie.
While LaBeouf has yet to comment on Fox’s departure, he’s already made clear he wants big changes for the franchise. “There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone,” he said of Revenge Of The Fallen, admitting he “wasn’t impressed.” It shouldn’t be too long before we hear who will be helping Shia bring back the “heart”—Transformers 3 has already begun filming in LA.
