E! Online has posted another interview with Transformers 3 producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has he once again comments on replacing Megan Fox with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Thanks to Brian for the link.
Is the Victoria's Secret model simply filling the hot-girl quota needed in a blockbuster franchise? "Well, Rosie is pretty hot," laughed Lorenzo. "But she's been great. She has a fantastic attitude, and she's been having a lot of fun."I wish di Bonaventura would quit talking about this. In the long run I think it is a dis-service to the movie, but also does not favors for Rosie. He is creating a situation where if the movie does well its despite Rosie and if it fails its because of Rosie. I don't see the win in continuing to comment about it. Also the unfortunate reality is Fox has proven not to be useful in helping a movie succeed. If people are watching Transformers for Fox and only Fox then I would think that would have translated into her other movies being successful but instead pretty much all her non-Transformer releases have been box office bombs. I wish her all the success and happiness in the world, but her lack of involvement is irrelvant to the success of Transformers 3. That will depend on the story, the action, and the special effects. The human characters exist to move the story along and keep the budget realistic. The Transformers are the real stars of the franchise.
"Rosie will definitely be [Shia's] love interest though," dished the famed producer. Well, we saw that coming a million pouty-lipped miles away, but how is LaBeouf taking a liking to the new chick on set?
"You know what? Their chemistry is proving to work out. You never really know. That's the biggest risk," Lorenze ‘fessed about the decision to replace Shia's good pal. "Megan and Shia had very good chemistry. Fortunately for us, these two have good chemistry.
It's a larger cast in general," the producer added about what positive changes to expect. "We've got [John] Malkovich, Patrick Dempsey...So what's happened is the shape of the movie has changed because of all the new people."
Side note, since article means the Megan vs Rosie debate (which I had banned in a previous post) is completely on topic, feel free to discuss in the comments. However, two caveats. 1) Keep it to this post and only this post and 2) Keep it PG. Start in on the moronic cussing/insults (which doesn't nothing to help your argument) and I will delete the comment.
