Well he may have jumped the gun a little bit there. Paramount confirmed this afternoon that Ms. Fox’s contract option will not be picked up for the third film thus leaving thousands of guys heartbroken.
Paramount is stating that the direction of the script has LaBeouf’s ‘Sam’ falling for a new girl. However, E! is reporting per Fox’s rep that leaving was all her idea “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
So far no one has been named as the next leading lady for the Transformers film.
‘Transformers 3′ is set to start shooting next month for a summer 2011 release. No details about the script or shooting locations have been released.
