View Full Version : Megan Fox's Career R.I.P.: 2007-2010

Megan Fox (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/914/914745.html) has reportedly been dropped from Transformers 3 (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/143/14330866.html).

Deadline (http://www.deadline.com/2010/05/michael-bays-revenge-no-more-megan/) claims "Paramount won't be picking up Megan Fox's option on Transformers 3 -- and that it was 'ultimately' director Michael Bay's decision. (So he gets his revenge for her remark comparing him to 'Hitler'.)" In other words, she was fired for her past war of words (http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/104/1048822p1.html) with the Transformers (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/568/568421.html) director.

The site adds that the script is being rewritten now to give Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) a new love interest. That role will be cast as soon as possible. Nothing is known about the character, except that she will likely be extremely hot and vapid.

Fox, 24, has seen her star rise and fall in just a few short years. She burst into the big time with her role as Mikaela Banes (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/142/14299815.html), a.k.a. eye candy bent over the engine of a muscle car, in 2007's Transformers. She followed that with the flop How to Lose Friends and Alienate People (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/142/14208417.html) before appearing in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/948/948398.html). Jennifer's Body (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/142/14213059.html), her horror comedy with Diablo Cody, also flopped, and her upcoming Jonah Hex (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/040/040155.html) doesn't exactly have the greatest buzz surrounding it.

Time will tell whether Megan Fox can rally back and prove to the industry and public that she's a legitimate actress and star, or if she'll serve as a cautionary tale for other overnight stars whose outspoken antics and diva reputations ruin their once promising careers before they even truly began.

The movie will probably be better off without her. Not that she contributed much to it.

Just read this bit over at superherohype.com (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=66238):

With the news that Megan Fox is not returning for Transformers 3 (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=66229), speculation has already begun about who may replace her in the now coveted role. After the news hit earlier today, TheWrap posted an interesting bit:

"Prince of Persia" star Gemma Arterton is the front-runner to replace Megan Fox in "Transformers 3," TheWrap has learned.

An individual close to the casting process says the actress has already had discussions with Bay about the coveted role. Other possible replacements for Fox include models Bar Rafaeli, Miranda Kerr and Brooklyn Decker.

What is interesting about this is that we got a chance to talk to Gemma at the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=20447) premiere on Monday night. We only got her for a few seconds on the red carpet and we took that time to ask her about a possible Clash of the Titans (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=40223) sequel (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=66238#). She gave us a rather cryptic response.

"I don't know if I am doing 'Clash of the Titans (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=66238#) 2.' I haven't seen a script yet so I don't know if it's happening," she said. Cool, that's a normal reaction, but then we asked whether she would want to make the sequel, and we got this answer: "I'm not saying."

We thought it was a weird response but moved on until we read the above about the possibility of her starring in Transformers 3 (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=59129). We're not sure when they would start production on a second Clash of the Titans, and one would think that she could do both, though her reaction may be telling that she's going to concentrate on the Michael Bay (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=66238#) sequel for now.

We'll have to wait and see how this one turns out! We should know soon who gets the role as shooting is already getting underway.

lulz. This post is awesome.

I don't know how I feel about this. I mean, I don't know if I'm happy, or ecstatic. I mean, I get that guys find her attractive (I probably wouldn't kick her out of bed, either ;)), but when it comes to acting, she's about at the bottom of my list. It's a shame, too, since she lucked out on getting a pretty sweet gig as a major role in the Transformers movies...I mean, even if you hate them, you've probably still seen them, which means they've made money either way.

The letter ends by calling Fox "a thankless, classless, graceless, and shall we say unfriendly bitch", and champions that her character in the film series be squished by Megatron in Transformers 3 (http://movies.ign.com/objects/143/14330866.html).

LOL. I think that just made my day. And here I was thinking I was the only person that hated this broad. But when you start comparing your "boss" to Hitler, there's bound to be some bumps later on down the road.

Oh well, I'm not sad. Bring on a new, better character plz Michael Bay. kthxbai.

Transformers were awesome long before Megan Fox was born. The first movie would have been great without her. The second one would have been better without her.

Megan Fox is hot but pretty dumb and a terrible actress. Plus, her ego and personality make her much much less attractive. I'd kick her out of bed but only after I was done with her.

As for this news, I don't think her career is done. She'll get by on her looks for a few more years. After that, I'm hoping for Porn too :p

I agree, she's an excellent person to play a western whore.... movie looks cool though.
Also, they should just pull a Don Cheadle with the whole Meagan Fox thing... makes things easier.

Really, who cares what she looks like? A talent agent could throw a rock out of any window in Hollywood and hit a pretty girl who can't act. Transformers (even though it really, really sucked) would have made a ton of money with or without her, she just happened to be lucky enough to get in on that money train. She'd better hope and pray she can be a box office draw on her own... or else she should go talk to any of the dozens upon dozens of twenty-something stars who were sex symbols of their time in the 80s, 70s, 60s, etc., and see how things work out when it's only looks that get you by in the movie business.

There was no saving that piece of crap 'film', even without the idiotically talentless imbecile.

The 1986 Transformers animated movie is still the only one I or anyone else should recognize as legit. These new ones I put more in the 'junk remake' pile ;).

What makes me even more upset is they get ride of megan and kept sams stupid roomate ugh i can't stand that guy.

I never get people who say someones a bad actor unless there out on there own as when there in someone eles movie there doing what there told and unless its really obvious then i get it but i enjoyed megan in transformers just saying.

But i do like the idea of her+porn=everyone wins

I wouldn't go so far as to call him the WORST director of the last decade...I might reserve that for Uwe Boll. I think it's clear that if you're looking for a decent summer blockbuster, then Bay is your man. I go in with little to no expectations, and I like watching shit blow up so I end up coming out of the movie entertained.

in the end it just boils down to personal preference in movies.

My main problem with Michael Bay isn't that he just blows shit up, I mean Transformers 1 & 2 are entertaining movies and I watch them quite a bit. What I hate about him is the number of damn re-makes he produces. To me that just says he has no imagination and likes to make money from other people's popular ideas. And also turn classic films into crapfest re-makes.

Two, there doesn't have to be a backstory about what happened to Mikala..... it's probably going to be stupid.

True, although there were a whole lot of witnesses of the actions of the first two films, they could just say the new girl was a non-believer of the cover up.

Anyway, good riddance. She can't act and I'm not one of those guys that drools over her.

I had the good fortune of missing out on "revenge of the fallen" and Ms. Fox with it. As Karma goes however, I had a disaster befall me and was forced to watch "jennifer's body". To quote MST3K's Tom Servo, on the film,"ENNNNNNNDD!!! ENNNNNNNNNDDD!!!!!"

Yea, Uwe Boll is the reason why I said "one of". Uwe Boll is for sure the Ed Wood times 2 of our time, and now he's gonna wanna fight me for saying that.

The thing I hate about Michael Bay is makes really dumb movies and makes all this money. When great movies are being over looked because they don't have shit blowing up. Like The White Ribbon and Fish Tank, the two directors of these two movies are head over heels better then Michael Bay. In a way Michael Bay keeps North America from having great films. Now I know once Micheal Bay is done someone will take his place, but you see my point?

And on topic I hate Mega Fox, ya she is good looking in the most slutty way, like Paris Hilton. So ya she serves her purpose so what can you do. Most people like slutty sex appeal and chick with no brains so they can hope to get in their pants. And she can't act. Now that I think about it she was perfect for Jennifer's Body.

I think it would be best if she were to reprise the role in Tranformers 3, but be killed off near the start of the film. She does nothing but bring a bit of eye candy to the film (other than the gorgeous CGI). I think right now the best thing she can do to repair her career is to shut her mouth or at least engage her brain before she opens her mouth.....
