Bay Says See You Later to Fox On TRANSFORMERS 3

By  | 

And no maybe’s about it either. Piss off director Michael Bay by calling him Hitler. “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for.” That’ll learn ya, Megan. You can’t really afford to be so mouthy after JENNIFER’S BODY’s tanked last fall – HARD! (I, on the other hand, liked it.) But I digress. Apparently she’s hitting the talk show circuit pretty hard promoting her next flop film JONAH HEX that comes out on June 18th.

From Nikki Finke over at Deadline Hollywood who first broke the news:

Exclusive: I’ve just learned that Paramount won’t be picking up Megan Fox’s option on Transformers 3 — and that it was “ultimately” director Michael Bay’s decision. (So he gets his revenge for her remark comparing him to “Hitler”.) Right now Bay and writer Ehren Kruger et al are finishing up the script for the three-quel and “giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story,” an insider tells me. Bay will start casting immediately for the new female co-star.

Oy, such drama for a Wednesday!  Finke went on to say:

So did Megan deserve to get fired? I say yes. No actor/actress can expect to go around dissing a director and expect to work together as if nothing happened. Much less the egotistical Bay. But in Fox, he had met his match. Why, as recently as this week Megan was quoted as dissing Bay yet again. In recent months she has shown off a more natural skin hue instead of her usual orange color — and blamed the Transformers helmer for her unhealthy tanning binge. “I had been tanning a lot so that Michael would be happy with my skin tone. Every spare moment of sun that was outside, I had to be in it,” the 24-year-old actress lamented in Allure magazine. “It’s not going to happen again because of the damage and the possible skin cancer.”

According to Bay over on his site, everything between the two was all honky-dorie back in October:

Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012. P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you.

So there you have it readers. Do you think Bay should’ve gone back on his “word” and given Ms. Fox the heave-ho? Who do you think should be the new love interest for Shia LeBeouf’s “Sam Witwicky” in next year’s TRANSFORMERS 3? Feel free to leave a comment below.

Huge passion for film scores, lives for the Academy Awards, loves movie trailers. That is all.

    So he does, Ford. Do you care enough to see a third TRANSFORMERS film, sans Megan? WHo would you like to see in her stead?
