“Transformers 5” may take years before it is finally released in theaters, but fans are already wondering if the installment would see the return of former cast members, Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf. Fox expressed her sentiments and said that she is willing to reprise her role under one condition. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Transformers” became such a huge success thanks to the great storyline, characters, and CGIs. Now that the franchise is headed for a fifth installment following “The Age of Extinction,” fans began wondering if there could be a possibility that former cast members could reprise their role in the upcoming sequel.
When “Transformers: Age of Extinction” hit theatres, Mark Wahlberg took on the male lead role in place of Shia LaBeouf, who played Sam Witwicky in the first three installments of the franchise. Megan Fox, on the other hand, played Sam’s girlfriend in the first and second installment, Mikaela Banes. Fox withdrew from reprising her role for the next installment titled, “Dark of the Moon,” following a rumored rift with “Transformers” director, Michael Bay.
“She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused,” Bay previously said about Fox, according to GQ.
While things may not have looked as good between Fox and Bay, the 28-year-old actress recently expressed her interest on reprising her role for the “Transformers” franchise under one condition.
According to Master Herald, the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2” actress said that she would be willing to star in the franchise once again if she will be playing alongside her onscreen love interest, Shia LaBeouf.
LaBeouf, however, does not seem too convinced on reprising his role for the “Age of Extinction” sequel as well as starring in the expanded Transformers Cinematic Universe. In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter, LaBeouf sent off negative comments about the film, director, including his Autobot protector, Bumblebee, whose name he said sounded pretty unrealistic.
“Bumblebee never sounds real, it’s just a f**king name. The name alone you can never make real, no matter how much you put into it, because on the other side you have a director who doesn’t believe it either,” LaBeouf said.
