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

Published 6 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?

  1. Megan Fox is spoiled, she thinks she can bite the hand that feeds her because she thinks she’s “so beautiful” that she’ll never be without work. Who cares, they are both idiots in my book, lol.

  2. Oh no, the talentless hack and the chick who looks like a porn star aren’t getting along?
    What shall we do?

  3. I agree 100% with Megan, she´s using 7% of her acting abilities? She’d better. She was the worst actor in the whoie movie. Michael Bay about Nicolas Cage, Ben Affleck, Will Smith, come on. They would’ve been big stars anyway.

  4. Even if that was only 7%, if she gives 100% she still would suck… :-D

  5. Bay seemed to go on a but of a rant there. Does he always list off his “achievments” (I’m not sure how to class giving us Cage and Afleck) when defending himself?

  6. they’re both wrong to be saying anything really. Weather you’re working 9-5 at a stop and rob gas station or making millions in the film industry, you keep a certain level of respect for your employer. She might not be in Transformers 3 but it really doesn’t matter. Bay can just hire Sasha Grey and be done with it.

    of course Bays comments aren’t any better and show off more of his inflated ego. One doesn’t have to look far to see the man is a few mcnuggets short of a happy meal. Didn’t he also have a back and forth with director McG? Of course Bay had to get the last word on that and put in a female Transforminator in this latest SFX extravaganza.

    Who knows about Megan and TF3. By the time Bay feels up to it, they’ll have kissed and made up. Or she’ll have grown up…or whatever.

  7. Don’t think much of Fox but she does seem to like speaking her mind, for what it’s worth.
    But Bay just comes back as patronising and full of himself. Affleck, Cage, Smith, even Lawrence – I knew them all fine before he put them in movies.

  8. She’s only a pretty face and there are thousands of those in Hollywood, and most of them aren’t stupid enough to diss the director in public. I would remind Megan Fox that after Tippi Hedren clashed with Hitchcock he ruined her career,and am hoping that Bay is at least as vindictive as Hitch.

  9. @rich

    Darn, she really is an empty-headed girl.
    You watch such interviews, and you just hope, for their sake, that they are faking it all. And even the interviewers was a bit… I don’t know, was he just playing along?

  10. just remember what the poll said :
    “most of the viewers watch TF-II for the giant robots, not Shia and Megan”

    peace everyone :D

  11. I certainly wouldn’t miss her if she wasn’t in the 3rd one. Don’t really care for her at all.

  12. Who said anything about replacing her? Just don’t include her, plain and simple.

  13. Megan Fox is obsessed with special effects herself
    judging by the amount of plastic surgery she’s had.

  14. “you’ve probably already seen it twice”

    I would have if the film wasn’t too long.

  15. She reminds me of Wil Wheaton.
    At the time when he was playing Wesley Crusher on TNG he didnt really appreaciate what was going on.
    But he realized what a gift the experience was after he had matured .
    I hope Megan Fox does too.

  16. Megan Fox is absolutely the most stunning actress ever. The only reason I saw the movie was because she was in it. I even saw it twice. If she’s not in the third one, i won’t even waste my time watching the trailer. Megan Fox is an uber baller. Enough said.

  17. Cute Broad but he can find another. They are all over the OC bros, all over in Wrigleyville in Chicago, all over South Beach. She’s a honey and she loves comic book art which makes her all the more interesting but she’s no Katherine Hepburn. Bay will find another ultra hot Maxim chich and turn her into a star. I love that Bay puts actors through bootcamp. I wish he would put most of the nation’s slackers through bootcamp. Maybe Bay is what we need not as a film maker but to toughen this nation of effeminate pussies up.

  18. Please replace her ASAP. She was the most cringe-worthy thing about this one in my opinion, and for a Michael Bay film, that’s saying a lot.

  19. What is wrong with the world. Megan Fox is the sexiest woman alive. There is no substitute. Transformers is where it is today because of her. Bay can make a good movie but it wouldnt be the same without Megan Fox. She’s the ish!

  20. I have no doubt that Megan will be in the next movie, BUT, you would be crazy to think that she is irreplaceable. There are billions of hot looking women in the world.

  21. Caleb, you must be in love with the 3 inch layer of make up that covers her face…

    There are so many hotter women out there, I know several people in real life hotter than her, but it’s about who can act, and she can’t…

  22. @ Matt Keith,

    lol, it was long. I usually love longer films but both times I watched it (like the first movie, it was better the second time btw) I almost fell asleep during the Devastator scene.

    Then again, I was seeing the latest show on both nights…

  23. I think when it comes to long movies it really depends on the content. If the movie is so captivating that you just want to see every detail you can absorb, then the longer the better. Some movies I WISH it was longer because I just didn’t get enough of it. But if a movie isn’t that interesting, then it’ll just feel like it’s WAY too long… So I guess it depends on how much you liked the movie. Maybe when the DVD comes out you can fast forward through the scenes you didn’t like, lol. Make your own custom cut of the film, haha. They should have a movie player with that option. Instead of director’s cut, a viewer’s cut, lol. Hm, maybe I should make something like that, could be markettable…

  24. “I know several people in real life hotter than her”

    LOL, no you don’t…

  25. LOL, yes I do…

  26. if megan fox isnt in transformers 3 nobody is goin to watch it shes the hottest women in the world a lot of people go to just see her

  27. “Bay can make a good movie but it wouldnt be the same without Megan Fox.”

    You’re right . . . it would be even better!
