(Newser) – Without Megan Fox, what exactly is the appeal of Transformers 3? The world will soon find out, because the sultry actress has been dropped from the July 2011 film. After her highly-publicized comments against director Michael Bay, many aren’t surprised to hear the news—but Bay himself had welcomed Fox back to the franchise on his blog in October, the AP reports.

Despite rumors Fox’s removal has to do with that very public spat, the actress’ rep tells People, “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”
