Transformers 3 – Megan is outta there

Michael Bay has dropped Megan Fox from Transformers 3 …no wait Fox has quit …no wait Paramount didn’t pick up the contact option…ah who cares all that matters is that the pouty one will not be in the new movie.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing because at times in Trannies 1 and 2 the robots acted more convincingly than she did. Sure she looks nice but there was absolutely no depth or warmth in her character or portrayal.

With Fox gone it opens up a whole new avenue of possible love interests for Shia Labeouf‘s Sam Witwicky, with rumours already linking token-female-lead-for-hire Gemma Arterton to the job. I’m starting to get tired of seeing her so hopefully they cast someone else.

Bay and Fox had a fractured relationship, which is surprising as Bay pretty much made her career with his voyeuristic camerawork on Transformers. What is more surprising is how late in the day it came with Transformers 3 currently shooting. A change for the better perhaps?
