After Transformers actress Megan Fox announced she will be opting out of Michael Bay‘s third TF film, there was wide spread shock among the teenage community. Who will wear tight clothing in the her place? Who in times of crisis will run and slightly reveal their heaving cleavage!? I mean come on! Megan Fox was perfect…for what Michael Bay was trying to achieve. I myself was shocked to her of the news, but not at all surprised. I mean with the amount of tension between franchise director Michael Bay and herself was enormous. At one point on filming the second TF (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) she compared Bay to Hitler himself, it was only time before it would explode. But instead she chose the high rode and left any future TF projects, which was to be expected.
Although no one can clearly identify why, Fox said she chose to leave, but The Sun reports that Bay was unhappy with her recent weight loss (Bay has said he doesn’t like skinny girls). “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best,” says a statement.
Now, we have news that the mighty Michael Bay has chosen! And not utterly surprising a Victorias Secret’s model, by the name of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Huntington-Whiteley, 23, has no recorded acting experience but according to FilmSchoolRejects.com has replaced Fox as lead actress for Transformers 3. By the looks of her I have no doubt that a smooth transition can be pulled off, lets just hope she has something to bring to the plate apart from beauty.
The third untitled Transformers started filming this last May (2010) and is due to be released some time July, 2011.
