Megan Fox Quits Transformers Movies

image

Megan Fox has announced that she will not be appearing in Transformers 3.

Actress Megan Fox, who starred as Mikaela Banes in the first two Transformers movies, will not be returning for the third installment, which starts production this month. Fox's publicist said in a statement: "Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3 ... It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best."

Fox's departure follows comments made by Fox last year that Michael Bay was difficult to work with, where she compared the director to Napoleon and Hitler. This was followed by an unsigned letter written by three members of the Transformers crew, which accused her of being "dumb", "ungracious", and "unappreciative". Bay stepped up to defend Fox however, saying that he looked forward to working with her in the future.

As yet, Paramount is refusing to give any further details or say who will replace Fox. Transfomers 3 is scheduled for release in July 2011.

Well, they're going to be better now. But still mostly crap, until they get rid of the human drama. And BAY-SPLOSIONS!

And did anyone here actually remember her character's name from the movies?

I agree, although i don't mind the films. But it was mostly her terrible acting that brought it down for me.

Thank goodness, maybe the next transformers will seem a bit less exploitative and Megan Fox can build a stable career (And maybe my ass can start a one man jazz ensemble).

I wonder how this relates to this:

Sounds like battling publicists if you ask me...

I saw this on Yahoo today and shit myself was mildy shocked.

It was Titty McCocktease, wasn't it?

Well movie bob will certainly be happy, as am I

But the movie will still be crap in all liklyhood, this goodluck still can't save it

Perhaps this is the early signal of the end times for the series? I really, really hope so. Those two films were some of the most bland, dull and unimaginative films I've ever seen.

she didn't quit, she got fired. they're trying to make it look like she quit, fro her image.

I don't watch these movies, so I don't care.

Can't wait to see how Moviebob reacts to this

I'm glad, get rid of all the humans in it, I say. Revenge of the fallen insulted me beyond recognition so I hope another installment doesn't do well. I only got relief by playing the Movie Bob review over and over..

Maybe now she can find a decent film that shows she can act without having to shoving her ass or boobs at the screen every 10 minutes. I actually think the first Transformers was great, but the second one just made blood leak outta my ears. Michael Bay can do better than that.

Meh, they'll just find another brainless robot to fill her shoes (and not the transforming kind)

Looks like she has followed sensible storytelling like a rat off a sinking ship.

He he he he, NO HE CAN'T

Hang on...
I'm sure another website I visit said about a week-ago that she was in - and had photos of her on set, with the new versions of the autobots. I've even seen the pics on the site.
unless I misunderstood what they were saying, which is completely possible...I'm not the shiniest sparkplug in the engine...
* edit - whoops, I got it wrong. Ignore my above comments...*

If this is true - hopefully we can have a movie about 30ft tall transforming robots, and not a soft porn film. With 30ft tall robots in the background....
and I'll see pigs fly!

Actually - the only person I'd like to really see play a replacment is Gemma Arterton. Did good in the last bondfilm.

Good. Seriously... I don't understand all the fascination on her... she isn't anything special in my view.

I didn't watch the movies for her anyways, her acting was decent, and she's kinda attractive.
But I only went to see the movies so I could see robots blow up other robots.

Respect for Miss Fox currently multiplied by the hundreds.

Best move she could ever make for her career.

Onyx Oblivion:

I doubt it'll be better - or at least, in any measurable sense better - the root cause of the shitness of these movies is Michael "Boom" Bay, heh.

Damn you Michael Bay! You Napoleonic bastard!!!

\o\ \o/ /o/

This pleases me.

I liked the action in Transformers 2. It reminded me of God Of War...but with giant robots.

oh my god, oooooh megan fox, yea big fucking deal.
Seriously the movies can only get better with her out of the way.

YES!!! Finally!

It's about robots, not about chicks. She's not a loss for mecha fans that's for certain.

Yes! Finally! About time! I hated that talentless twa........ I mean, no great loss, I also lol'ed at crew calling her "dumb", "ungracious", and "unappreciative". Funny cause its true

I agree with this, Why the hell would anyone turn down a lead(ish) role in a multi million making sequel to one of the highest grossing films of last year. The dude may be tough to work with but come on it's not like it's shooting The Abyss or working with Werner Herzog. She would have all sorts of residuals and perks since she's be top billing and the sex appeal (ugh) Better to get some wide eyed FHM model who'll work for little and serve the same part.

I get the feeling the worst thing to deal with on a Michael Bay set is the daily contractual teabagging.

"Make sure the sun hits my junk just right!"

...Am I the only one who likes what Michael Bay does?

She didn't quit, her option was not renewed

"Paramount Pictures said Wednesday that Fox's option was not picked up for part three in the blockbuster Michael Bay series. The studio, which released the first two movies about shape-shifting machines doing battle, declined to give further details or say who would replace the 24-year-old actress." - AP

Next she should quit 'acting' entirely.

Holy Shit, that character had a name!?!?!?!?!?
OT: Meh.. I don't really care

To all you people rejoicing at this news - What exactly are you so happy about? She wasn't the problem. She wasn't what made the Transformers movies crap. She's simply eyecandy with mediocre acting skills. If you want a problem, try these:

1. A retarded idiot directing the whole thing.
2. Two talentless rejects writing the whole thing.
3. Overly focused on human characters (seriously, I don't care about Shia LeBouf's college roommates)
4. Both movies massively succesful despite all the above, meaning the next one will follow in their footsteps.

Megan Fox is the least of the franchise's problems, and at least she was pleasant to look at...
