Director Michael Bay isn't letting being compared to Hitler get in the way of smart casting. He's hired Megan Fox for Transformers 3 despite her rant against his on-set tactics and his own crew calling her dumb as a rock!
Bay announced his Transformers 3 decision on his official website.
"Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012.
Today is Day One. This morning started with an ILM meeting for five hours in San Francisco. Currently I'm flying with writer Ehren Kruger to Rhode Island to talk to Hasbro about new characters.
P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you.
Pain and Gain is right after shooting of Trans 3.
Megan hosted Saturday Night Live last week and had boyfriend Brian Austin Green pop up in a Transformers skit.
There's no word yet if she's going to try to get her guy into the real thing.
