According to Pop Crunch (via In Touch Weekly magazine), director Michael Bay wants to kill off female lead Mikaela Banes (played by Megan Fox) in the next installment, which is slated for a summer 2011 release. Bay reportedly wants Fox’s character written “out of the series in a gory death scene in the first few frames of Transformers 3 and (replace) with another gorgeous young actress.”
The magazine’s purported source claims “‘Michael’s pretty much discovered Megan and now he’s very quietly looking for her replacement. … He hasn’t decided if he’s going to kill her off in the next movie, but he just wants to be prepared.'”
According to Digital Spy, however, Fox’s reps have called the report untrue.
Bay and Fox engaged in an infamous war of words this summer during the promotion of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, with the actress even comparing her director to Hitler at one point.

Variety has breaking news about the next Transformers sequel as well as some other big upcoming release dates… I just wish Hollywood will finally get over this comic book thing, Spider Man 4??? UGHHHH:
“Transformers” will return that summer, with Paramount dating the third installment of the franchise on July 1, 2011, with Michael Bay once again at the helm. Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox are also set to return.
Bay announced the new date on his website, saying he’s begun meeting with ILM and Hasbro, with scribe Ehren Kruger, to hash out plans for the pic with the toymaker, which serves as a producer.
With a timeframe for when the robots of “Transformers” will stomp into theaters again, the 2011 summer sesh is filling up with high-profile properties.
A fourth “Spider-Man” kicks off in May, followed by “Thor” and “The Hangover 2” that month. June has the launch of “The Green Lantern” and a “Kung Fu Panda” sequel, while July features the second part of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” “The First Avenger: Captain America,” “Battleship” and “The Smurfs.” Disney also plans to bow “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” some time that summer.

The sequel to 2007’s Transformers has been hailed as the summer movie event of the year. After drawing an impressive $201 million this past weekend it came very close to beating The Dark Knight’s record for all time biggest 5 day opening. It’s safe to say that regardless of what my review will contain, Transformers 2 is a box office smash. After watching this film, it is quite clear that Michael Bay and company have not lost a step and that every Transformers fan to step in to the theater for this one will be more than pleased by what they see.
The critics have not been kind to this film, but I think that they really missed the point of what Transformers is all about. From the beginning to the end, this film brings an unapologetic sense of violence, action, sex, and an expansive story that spans from 17,000 BC to now. No expense is spared in the making of this film and the plot is larger than life. But for a summer blockbuster would you really have it any other way?
The film picks up 2 years after the first. We find out that the Autobots are working with the Government to track down any remaining Decepticons. Optimus Prime has become a central figure for the government and the military seems to be taking a liking to the alien lifeforms. We also find out that Sam Witwicky (Shia LeBouff) is headed off to college which will put a rift in his relationship with Mikaela (Megan Fox) who is staying in town to help out at her Dad’s auto shop.
Megan Fox is stunning from her first appearance in the film and her fan’s will not be disappointed as their is ample cleavage and slow motion running. Sam heads off to school with his comedically stereotypical parents in tow. His dorm roommate is a hacker named Leo (Ramon Rodriguez) who is the film’s easy to hate sidekick. We are also introduced to Alice (Isabel Lucas) a girl who immediately takes a liking to Sam even though he is taken, and turns out to be more than we thought she is.

Since this is predominantly a blog for men, we figured you MIGHT be interested in watching the brand spankin’ new Transformer’s 2 trailer that ran in front of Friday the 13th this weekend. Just thought you might want to take a peek. As you can see Shia Lebouf and Megan Fox are back and this looks to be bigger and better than anything in the first flick. Looks like this will hands down be the biggest movie of 2009.
