Meanwhile, PEOPLE reports that it was actually Megan Fox's decision not to return to 'Transformers.'

"Megan Fox will not be starring in 'Transformers 3,'" say Fox's reps. "It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best."

It was reported yesterday that Paramount and director Michael Bay opted not to pick up Fox's option to appear in the sequel.
