On the heels of reports that she has been booted from the cast of Transformers 3, Megan Fox released a statement to People: “Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3,” reps for the actress, 24, tell People. “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.” Both Hitfix and Deadline have been all over the story, before and after the statement.
Hitfix: Sources close to the production tell HitFix Megan Fox was not
written out of Transformers 3, nor was it Michael Bay’s decision to
drop her from the film. She left the picture.
Nikki Finke at Deadline has it differently, though: I can tell you that this new statement from Megan Fox’s PR flack about why the actress won’t be appearing in Transformers 3 is absolutely untrue: “It
was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
What a pantload. I stand by my scoop that Paramount and Michael Bay
kicked her to the curb by not picking up her option to do the threequel.
Still no word from the camps of either Skids nor Mudflap…
