The news, broken by Nikki Finke over at Deadline Hollywood,
means that Transformers
director Michael Bay
and company have decided to go in a new direction in the third film of the mega-successful franchise. An insider speaking to Finke says that Bay decided "giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story." More on Megan Fox:
Fox, of course, famously referred to working with Michael Bay as a "nightmare." In an interview with Wonderland
magazine, she said Bay wanted to "create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for."
It sounds like a nightmare Fox has now woken up from, whether she wanted to or not.
