Megan FoxBombshell news: Megan Fox will not appear in next summer's blockbuster event 'Transformers 3.'

According to Variety, Paramount has not picked up her option to appear in the third film, which is slated to hit theaters on July 1, 2011, but did not offer any further information. Sources added that the studio and director Michael Bay are looking to take the story in a different direction.

Last September, Fox created a media firestorm when she gave a controversial interview with Britain's Wonderland Magazine, during which she compared Bay to Hitler. "God, I really wish I could go loose on this one. He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is."

However, according to the report, the decision had nothing to do with her comments. Megan FoxBombshell news: Megan Fox will not appear in next summer's blockbuster event 'Transformers 3.'
