A source who works at Paramount, the studio that produces the film, said Fox’s character would not be revived in “ #Transformers-3,” as producers want to take Shia LaBeouf’s character Sam Witwicky in a different direction, Access said.
Director Michael Bay apparently signed off on the decision; months after Fox compared his approach to work on set to that of “Hitler” and “Napoleon.”
“He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is,” she continued. “So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward.”
Members of the cast and crew labeled Fox as “classless” and “unfriendly” in an open latter on Bay’s personal site.
Production on the third installment has already begun, Access reported.
