Ever since news surfaced that Megan Fox would not return for Transformers 3, fans of the series began to speculate on Fox’s replacement.
She may have not been the popular choice (mostly because she’s not well known), but Deadline reports that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is set to replace Megan Fox as Shia LaBeouf’s love interest. The source also noted that Sarah Wright and Brooklyn Decker were among the top choices. Production for Transformers 3 will begin May 17th in Los Angeles.
In other news, Disney is sold on Megan Fox and her ability to play a “sexy mermaid” in the new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Megan Fox, however, has yet to commit. A source told The Mirror, “Megan is mulling over a number of big movie offers including another sci-fi franchise and a role in the next Pirates of the Caribbean.”
Also according to the source, if Megan did indeed accept the role, “she would play a mermaid who charms Captain Jack with a dark motive.”
