Many entertainment sources including E! Online confirmed that Megan Fox will not be in the third installment of the Transformers franchise. People magazine reports that the dropping was Fox’s idea and that she wasn’t forced out. I’m sure comparing Michael Bay to Hitler didn’t help her cause.
Despite Fox being ousted, the third movie will still move on and make tons of money. There are plenty of Hollywood bimbos who would be willing to be in a huge action flick, get lots of screen time, and get paid lots of money. Megan Fox was simply eye candy as evidenced by her clothes-changing scene from Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.
I’m sure there are many other Hollywood hotties just as dumb as Fox who could take on the role of love interest to Shia LeBouf’s character. Heidi Montag is priority one as the plastic surgery babe has Tweeted that she’d love to be in the next movie according to People.
Lindsey Lohan would also fit the bill as her legal troubles are mounting and the party girl is out of the control. She’d probably be dropped because she’s not hot enough. The Celebrity Café says that ComicBookMovie.com reports that Katie Cassidy is a frontrunner for Fox’s replacement since she’s worked with Bay before on Nightmare on Elm Street. Another choice has been cited as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, girlfriend of Jason Statham and a Victoria’s Secret model.
Both women would fit in nicely since they are relative unknowns, probably don’t know how to act, and are simply eye candy. Fox at least had some lines in the first film that were relevant to the plot. The second Transformers incarnation was worthless and shouldn’t have been made the way it should. My childhood cartoon has been forever ruined by Michael Bay.
Fox’s departure won’t hurt ticket sales at all. As I stated earlier, there are many Hollywood bimbos who would love to be in a worthless film just for screen time and a big paycheck. Men will see Transformers 3 for the same reason they saw the second one: big robots, lots of action, and one on-screen hotty. The name doesn’t matter just the face and body, both of which Hollywood has a lot of. The Geek Files have gotten much more in depth of the bombshells who could take over for Megan Fox. The job can’t be too hard after all.
If the second movie can make more than the first and be that horrible of a production value then the third one is a shoo in for making even more money with another pretty face on the screen. With or without Megan Fox, Hollywood and Transformers will move on since the same glut machine that spit out the crappy second movie will not only make a third movie but teach a new generation of women that getting unspeakable things done to their bodies is a good thing. It’s all just for show, right?
