Megan Fox will not play a role in Transformers 3.
In related news, THG will no longer be seeing Transformers 3.
Following reports that the movie studio and director Michael Bay planned to cast another actress as Shia LaBeouf's love interest in the film, Fox's rep quickly released a statement and said departing the franchise was his client's choice.
“Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3," the rep said. "It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
Will you miss Megan Fox in Transformers?
Fox and Bay do have a contentious history: the actress compared the director to Hitler last year. Seriously.
The third movie in the Transformers franchise is scheduled for a July 2011 release. If Fox wants to be taken seriously as an actress, it's not a bad idea to focus her career on more serious fare anyway.
Or just go the opposite direction and star in soft core porn. We'd advise the latter.
The actress will next be seen in Jonah Hex, an action flick that also features Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Will Arnett. The photo above is courtesy of the movie. Call us crazy, but we think it will do well.
