Megan Fox Will Not Return For ‘Transformers 3’
According to reports from many different sources, it has been confirmed that Megan Fox will not be returning for the third and final installment of ‘Transformers 3’.
A source at Paramount told Access Hollywood that Fox, who played Mikaela in the first two blockbusters, would not be returning, stating that in order to take Shia LeBeouf’s character, Sam, in a new direction, it was better if he wasn’t tied down to a love interest.
However, reps for Megan told People that it had been her decision to leave the franchise.
“Megan Fox will not be starring in ‘Transformers 3’ ” her reps said, “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
Nikki Finke, who first reported the news for Deadline, claims it was “ultimately” director, Michael Bay’s decision.
Megan has been quoted as comparing Bay to Hitler and Napoleon during an interview with British magazine Wonderland..
“He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation,” she says.
“He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is,” she continued. “So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward.”
Shortly after, the Transformers crew posted an open letter on the director’s site addressing Megan’s behavior, calling her “the grump of the set” and also describing her as “thankless, classless, graceless” and “unfriendly”.
Michael Bay immediately removed the letter from the site and eventually addressed the accusations himself stating “I don’t condone the crew letter to Megan. And I don’t condone Megan’s outlandish quotes.”
Well, either way, regardless of the whole ‘he said/she said’ routine, Megan is out. Keep checking in to see what she’s up to next!
