Will Megan Fox Feud With Michael Bay Mean No Transformers 3?

Published 5 years ago by , Updated August 22nd, 2013 at 6:23 pm,

As you no doubt already know, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is currently playing in theaters everywhere and making insane amounts of money. In fact, you’ve probably already seen it twice considering how much money this thing has made in its opening week.

As of now, it’s made over a half-billion dollars worldwide in just over a week and expected to net plenty more over the weekend – that means we are absolutely guaranteed a third installment to round off the trilogy.

No matter what anyone says, or what rumors you may hear about Michael Bay, Transformers 3 will be made. It’s a guarantee.

For the next installment, what we do know is that Bay is taking a break from the franchise to work on a little more serious and a much smaller project. He’s spent the last three years working strictly on bringing the Cybertronian robots to the big screen and working insane hours to get the sequel out on an extremely rushed schedule. Now, he needs time off to gather himself and work on something different and come back later with a fresh mind.

As for the franchise’s leading lady and ultimate marketing device, Megan Fox has been continuously playing down her role in the movie and berating the Michael Bay franchise. Here are some examples:

In response to a question about how much of her acting range has been demonstrated, Fox said:

“Seven percent. On the new one ['Transformers 2'], I tried. But unless you’re a seasoned veteran, working with Michael Bay is not about an acting experience.”

And as for claims against Bay for being more interested in effects and explosions than action:

“That’s true. He thinks it’s funny to put his actors through Navy Seal boot camp to make a movie. And it’s not even necessary for the job! It amuses him”

Perhaps she’s emulating what she’s been reading online from news sites, blogs and critics and trying to appease to them?

On one hand, she’s being completely honest and fearless in what she says. She speaks her mind and her beliefs and doesn’t back down. On the other hand, this may be unprofessional to a certain extent when it comes to being negative towards those who got her to where she is today.

Of course, nothing against Bay goes without response and here is what the explosive director said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. Wall Street asked: “It’s interesting that you want to focus on acting. Megan Fox, one of the leads in “Transformers” has criticized your films for being special-effects-driven and not offering so many acting opportunities. Do you agree?” Bay’s Response:

“Well, that’s Megan Fox for you. She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do. You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, “Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it.” But I 100% disagree with her. Nick Cage wasn’t a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in “Armageddon.” Shia LaBeouf wasn’t a big movie star before he did “Transformers”—and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from “Bad Boys.” Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in “Transformers.” I like to think that I’ve had some luck in building actors’ careers with my films.”

At this point, I don’t think it matters. This movie will make an insane amount of money with our without Megan Fox. This franchise started her career and she doesn’t seem that thankful of it all.

Fox didn’t play that major of a role in Revenge of the Fallen in terms of what went on with the plot and according to a survey leading up to the film, moviegoers are going to see this movie regardless. The millions of tween, teens, young adults and every other moviegoer who is subject to the mass marketing behind this franchise isn’t going to all-of-a-sudden avoid the next movie if she’s not in it.

That being said, she’ll no doubt be in the next one. She may be quoted as being “controversial” but money talks and in 2-3 years time, she’ll want to be involved again in the biggest movie of that year, especially after this movie’s box office earnings are counted up.

Does Megan Fox’s involvement with the next Transformers affect your decision to see it or can she be replaced?

Transformers 3 will likely debut for the summer of 2012.

  1. pretty faces are a dime a dozen. Replace her with someone who has TALEN!!!!!

  2. Call me shallow !!!! I probably wouldnt want to know her but do her i would!!! Then wake up really early and bail with all the braggin rights!!!!! Yes I am that shallow!!!!!!!!!

  3. Man i would love to have a relationship with Megan Fox i personally think she is the hottest chick out there and women could be like her. So hatters back offf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. LOL, you must live in a really sad place full of ugly chicks… There’s a girl working tonight where I am that’s hotter than Megan Fox… And she’s smart and sweet too! Two qualities Fox doesn’t have, lol.

  5. I wouldn’t miss Meagan Fox at all in Transformer 3, she’s a terrible actress and not that cute. Replace the witch

  6. Stop hatting on Megan Fox cause she is sexy, smart, and attract matter of face i am her biggest fans beside u haters need to back off cause she is ain’t going nowhere as she take on hollywood

  7. Man, I got the funniest joke, but can’t say it because it’ll kind of count as a personal attack, dammit!!! lol :-D

  8. Megan Fox keep doing ur things cause u got fans like myself who got ur back no matter what Hatter if u got something to say it to me cause i am not the one to mess with!

  9. Must… resist… will power… getting… weaker… :-P

  10. Michael Bay thinks he put Nicholas Cage on the map? Cage had been doing films for 15 years before meeting Bay… and his uncle is Francis Ford Coppola, for god’s sake.

    As for Ben Affleck, his name was MADE when Good Will Hunting came out. And that was no thanks to Michael “the ego” Bay.

    As for those saying that Megan Fox “got where she is thanks to Michael Bay”, well, that’s not saying much, is it now! Where exactly is she? No one in Hollywood would give her a serious dramatic role unless they wanted to attract the horny male teenager audience… as is pretty obvious from the disgusting pandering that’s going on in this thread.

    Dudes: she’s a friggin’ piece of plastic. And she couldn’t act her way out of a soggy paper bag. And an idiot to boot!

    “Transformers” is a financial success because it’s a completely brainless, SFX-laden popcorn movie that pleases hormonal teenage boys and adult basement-dwellers with translucent skin that haven’t seen the sun in years.

    Michael Bay gets to make movies (and I use the term VERY loosely) because the guy knows how to put explosions on screen. Other than that, he’s a pathetic filmmaker. His camera movement is amateurish and unmotivated, his editing is schizophrenic and epileptic, and the dialogues are – at best – laughable or – at worst – insulting.

  11. Michael bay is an idiot.

    Ben Affleck was already a household name before he even met Michael Bay. “Good Will Hunting” anyone?

    Nicholas Cage is Francis Ford Coppola’s nephew, for god’s sake. He REALLY didn’t need Michael “I am god’s gift to Hollywood ESSSSPLSIONS!” Bay to make him famous.

    As for Megan Fox.. well, she got to where she is because she was in a Michael bay film. Um, where exactly is she? I don’t see anyone offering her Lady MacBeth or any other serious dramatic roles since her thespian escapades in “Transformers”.

    Of course, she isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier either. So I guess she and Michael bay deserve each other. Pots. Kettles. You know the drill.

  12. Honestly the only thing nice on that girl r her eyes. If i was bay i’d definantly replace her or just not put her in transformer 3. Shes ungrateful regardless of anything whether bay is full of himself or anything he hooked her up and she just put him out there like that. That’s messed up i would most def. not hire her again if i was him

  13. Well call me crackers & put jelly on my head. Grammie always said, “If da slippy aint dippy then the slappy aint dappy!!” Words to live by. Megan Fox got da goat by da cheese now! June aint green if you know what I mean!! Eh…eh, fellas?!? Oh Yeah!!! Bang a gong & get it on!!!

  14. the second transformer movie was ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!!! but the horrible acting wasn’t even what killed it. fox definitely was the worst actor of them all, but that could also be just bad directing. however, bay still should just put a better looking girl in her place, since she’s so ungrateful. doesn’t she realize she is a dime a dozen?

  15. I hope Megan Fox is NOT in the next transformers movie. People are sick of her anyway.

  16. megan fox is hotest and shes ass is cool

  17. The movie, as was the cartoon, has been and always will be about the transformers, not the human actors. Yes, the movie did need some human intervention, but, the movie would have probably done just as well casting any other actor(s).

  18. Fox served no purpose in the transformers movie, except to cater to sex drives. Get rid of her.

  19. i think that megan fox plays a important job and that she should keep her job also its not fair to judge her over a few movies i still think she is an excellent actress

  20. Fox should be grateful for the physical training Mr.Bay put her through, after all she is making big bucks because of that body. She is a nobody without the career boost he gave her. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you!

  21. I have to admit megan fox is hot as all hell. and yes she does have the additude going, wich no its not super profesional but its hot and sexy so everyone will like her for it. as for Bay from the comments he is quoted saying here he sounds like a high and mighty a-hole. like every one who is any one should all be graveling at his feet. he’s jus a director, they are the actors they are the ones who do good. if they get famous its cuz they have what it takes not cuz he brought them into the game. someone needs to give him a wake up call and bring him back to earth.

  22. I believe that she can be replaced, but then the story gets offset because then you wonder where this new person came from. if there is a new girl playing megan fox’s role, then i believe that it wont’ be as good because it’s not the original cast from the first and second movie. I think that michael bay should keep megan fox in the cast and every time she bitches about something or make ridiculous comments then she should lose some pay.

  23. MEGAN FOX IS OVER,EVERY MINUTE A NEW STAR IS BORN>YOUR 15 MINS ARE OVER.YOU WILL NEVER BE JOLIE AND YOU HAVE JUST DISSED A DIRECTOR WHO MAKES STARS.IN THIS BUSINESS,YOU ARE FINISHED IF ANY DIRECTOR RESPONDS LIKE THAT,ESPECIALLY MICHEAL BAY.MICHEAL BAY IS A GOD'S GIFT TO HOLLYWOOD AND YOU ARE A NOBODY.TRUST ME YOU HAVE THE SAME FATE AS LINDSAY LOHAN.HOLLYWOOD RARELY GIVES A SECOND CHANCE TO ANYONE.I DON”T SEE THIS HAPPENING
