Megan Fox Dropped from Transformers 3

Call this the "We didn't see THAT coming" moment of the year.
Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Michael Bay has advised Paramount not to pick up Megan Fox's option for the third installment of the Transformers franchise. Even though Fox has been openly critical of Bay (comparing him to Hitler, reporting that her audition consisted of washing his car, and complaining about the exposure to skin cancer she received in order to keep her body tanned to his liking), he was still welcoming her back to the franchise back in October in a letter warning her about the rigors to be expected on the set.
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.
Hmmmm ... so it seems there is really no love loss between the two. Can Fox have a career outside of Transformers? Her first starring vehicle, Jennifer's Body, only made a paltry $16.2 million dollars domestically and early buzz around this summer's Jonah Hex says it may well be headed to box-office bomb land, itself.
