    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 threequel 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. Let's hear your suggestions, readers...

    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."

    This is without doubt a huge blow to Megan's career, already damaged by her inability to open Twentieth's Fox Atomic film Jennifer's Body last September. The R-rated feminist horror flick did a pathetic $6.8M weekend for a script by Juno's Diablo Cody for a domestic total of only $16.2M and a worldwide take of just $31.5M. And talk about bad timing: right now she's doing publicity for her role in Jonah Hex to be released June 18th. Guess what everyone will ask her?

    I guess calling Michael Bay "Hitler" and driving crew members insane to the point where they had to choke a baby fox for release cost Megan Fox a job. Deadline Hollywood first reported that Paramount is not picking Megan Fox's contract up for a third Transformers movie. Paramount confirmed the news to ET.

    Somewhere in Los Angeles, Megan Fox is getting a pedicure on her thumbs while crying into a bowl of toe jam and water. No, probably not.

    Michael Bay is currently looking for a sexy new love interest for Shia LaBeouf's character. QUICK! Somebody slide Quween of the Scene's picture and resume to Michael Bay!

    While everybody is doing the dick slappy dance at the thought of Megan Fox taking her first step on the road to irrelevancy, I'm a little sad. If Megan isn't doing Transformers 3, that means she won't be doing promotion for it, which means we won't be gifted with her profound words of wisdom.

    Won't you miss feeling your brain cells slowly slip out the back door while reading one of her quotes? Aren't you getting a little teary eyed at the thought of never dunking your head in a sink full of electrified water to bring your dead brain back to life after reading a Megan Fox interview? I am.

    And expect a "Betty White to replace Megan Fox" Facebook campaign in tres...dose....

    Good riddance.I don't hate her (I actually learned to like her) but she was useless anyway.LOL at her saying that it was her decision now,I really don't buy it.But If it was actually the case,then it's a very bad career move.

    That's what she gets for calling him Hitler. I am not shocked by this, it was only a matter of time.

    I don't hate either, but the girl really needs to take a lesson.
    She obviously doesn't know the difference between being positively outspoken and downright annoying.

    I really like her, but I think she was fired. The source from my original post is usually more than reliable when it comes to the going ons in the industry. I think Megan's people might be trying to save face.

    i don't know who walked away first but there sure had to be a disagreement - there were pics of Megan in pre-production for Transformers 3 so both sides were obviously in the boat - and now she is not in the boat anymore - i rather tend to think that she was kicked off the boat and not walked away herself because she knows very well that she still isn't a superstar but just a name - her attempt to make it at the box office by her name as the leading actress totally failed with jennifer's body and a franchise is something even big stars don't shield away from because it is lucrative and gets your name to the studio bosses and the audience (e.g. robert downey jr., gwyneth paltrow, scarlett johansson, kirsten dunst, natalie portman etc. all joined franchise movies and have been in the business for a much longer time than miss fox)

    yes Snowkei because i have no other explanation why she would be at the pre-set for the franchise on the 2nd of May and suddenly walking away? doesn't make sense - there had to be some conflict!

    Megan Fox Was Not Fired

    [​IMG]
    dlisted.com
    Paramount announced yesterday that prolific philosopher and soon-to-be Fox Reality Channel star, Megan Fox, would not be in Transformers 3. They decided it was more cost effective and easier on the nerves if they used a wig-wearing piece of wet cardboard as Shia LaBeouf's love interest instead. And they would probably get more raw emotion out of a piece of cardboard. But wait! Megan Fox wants it known that Michael Bay did not throw her as* towards the exit sign, she quit that b*tch!

    Megan's spokesbitch tells People, “Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3. It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”

    I know that Megan is trying to save face, but that was a dumb b*tch move! b*tch can kiss a weekly unemployment check goodbye now that she's saying she quit instead of getting fired. Stupid toe thumbed fuc*. I say that with respect (no, I don't).

    And guess who is already trying to land Megan's spot in Transformers?

    Before you laugh, let me remind you that Heidi Montag is a CGI robot with the personality of a broken car engine so she'll fit right in with the rest of the cast,
