Michael Bay's site confirms what we already knew about the Fox switch

06.03.2010

When the news broke out that Megan Fox was leaving the TRANSFORMERS franchise, a few fans were waiting for the confirmation from director Michael Bay.

It's a little late in coming, but Bay's site is finally addressing the switch. Here's the original post:

Nelson here...

"I would like for all you S4TE fans to welcome Rosie Huntington Whiteley to the world of Transformers. As some of you might know, she's the new female lead in Transformers 3. She's worked with Michael before in his Victoria's Secret "A Thousand Fantasies" ad. You can view it here and here."

Yes, the first video link does contain a shot of three models in lingerie posing while an explosion is set off behind them. It's sort of hilarious.

The rest of the post is an article from the LA Times about the crew of TRANSFORMERS taking over the streets of Los Angeles. Here's some excerpts:

"The DreamWorks/Paramount Pictures production has been shooting on a sound stage at the former Spruce Goose Howard Hughes hangar at Playa Vista and will film exterior shots throughout the L.A. area over the next several weeks, including Long Beach, West Hollywood, Century City and Malibu.The first two "Transformers" movies were also shot heavily in Southern California, filming numerous scenes downtown and at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert."

"In all, six weeks of the 4 1/2 months of shooting will occur in the L.A. area, with the rest of the filming spread across Chicago, Detroit, Washington and Cape Canaveral, Fla., and a few foreign locales, including Russia and an undisclosed African country, [Ian] Bryce said."

"Bryce said the science-fiction action movie starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Patrick Dempsey required more diverse locations than L.A. could offer, and also cited the advantages of "very attractive rebates" offered in Michigan and Illinois, which will also host the production for six weeks."

"The picture, with an estimated production budget of at least $200 million and a local crew of nearly 500, would not qualify for California's new film incentive program, which is limited to movies with budgets of up to $75 million."

So that's why Bay picked her...
Extra Tidbit: Um, didn't they figure the budget would go over $75 million? It is Michael Bay.

Really???

Well, I guess this is Muffy. Aw hell, one epic ass shot isn't going to save this steaming pile of sh*t.
Also, Megan Fox's ass is even more spectacular so, yeah I'm still on Team Fox. And unless there's some really damn good news as far as the bots are concerned, I'm slightly more interested in seeing this than the bull-sh*t Spider-man remake.

Who gives a shit about the love interest/human eye candy? I just want a good Transformers movie. Megan Fox not being in this movie effectively ruins every and any of the limited plot that Shia had in TF2. Maybe they made this so that we can forget the last movie ever happened.

So...

Michael thinks he can "make" this girl like he "made" Megan Fox? Pfftt... good luck. I think given what I have heard about TF3 (less robots, no Megan Fox) I have significantly LESS interest to watch it in the theaters...

Don't care about her. If they fix the problems that TF2 had in TF3, then I'm cool.

Did they even give a reason to replace the other girl? Weren't they getting married in the movie? Won't this seem like a terrible transition?

Oh what do I care it's just cgi robots fighting eachother.

I think everyone knows why Michael Bay dropped Megan Fox; no need to spell it out. I'm sure they'll figure out some way of explaining it without actually bringing her back.

But yeah, I couldn't give a rat's @$$ about this flick.

Dude, they are cutting back on the robot stuff to force more of the humans on us, like that wasn't the big problems with the first two.

TF3 Will Also Be Awesome Garbage!

I'm guessing Transformers3 will turn out to be better than TF2, but the way things are, it could get very messy, really fast. Honestly, I don't care about the lead female, supporting males, whatever. All I wanna' see are robots, explosions, more robots, awesome visuals, more explosions, and the coolest metal-on-metal fight scenes in the history of Hollywood. Bring on TF3!!

Let me guess:
She's gonna bend over and straddle vehicles in positions that forces down our throats how hot Michael Bay finds her.
A robot will comment on how hot she is.
Said robot will do something sexual to her.
She will perform fellatio on the robot.

If they find Omega Supreme at Cape Canaveral then I might go see it but otherwise it will be a rental.

Her buttcheeks...

...they have been overpowdered. Possibly with that foofy Clueless-esque pen thing she's about to cram into her ass.
