It looks like Michael Bay is getting the last laugh after last summer’s heated battle with Megan Fox. The beautiful actress made some rather controversial remarks about Bay, comparing the big-budget director to Hitler and starting a war between the two.
Today, Deadline is reporting that Paramount has declined to pick up Fox’s contractual option for Transformers 3, after the decision came down to Bay. Right now, Bay and writer Ehren Kruger are finishing up the script for the the sequel and “giving Shia a new love interest that makes more sense for the story” an insider told Deadline.
