Artificial Continuum

Boys are crying, and Michael Bay and I are smirking, Megan Fox has walked out of the third Transformers film. Reportedly because of the public disagreements between her and director Michael Bay, Deadline claims that Fox's option was not picked up for a third film. The script is now being reworked to include a new love interest for main character Sam Witwicky, played by Shia LaBeouf. Whether this will be a simple recasting or a totally new character remains to be seen.

My Opinion: This news comes as a mixed blessing. While Megan Fox is certainly attractive, her acting skills are subpar to say the least. Her bland monotone and looks of boredom are part of why Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen failed. Now, part of me is also annoyed at this announcement. I have never been a fan of midseries recastings or out of film changes in character, yet I'll stay optimistic. So let's see. No Twins. Both Bay and LaBeouf admitting that the second film was a failure. Now Fox leaves? Looks like Transformers 3 just might have a shot.
