Could Gemma Arterton Replace Megan Fox in ‘Transformers 3’?

Gemma Arterton to replace Megan Fox in Transformers 3? Just hours ago we reported that Megan Fox would not be appearing in Transformers 3 and now it seems that there is already a front-runner for her replacement. The Wrap is reporting that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time actress Gemma Arterton is the leading candidate to star in Transformers 3.

The site is reporting that Arterton has already had discussions with director Michael Bay for the role and that other potential replacements could be model/actresses Miranda Kerr, Brooklyn Decker and Bar Rafaeli.

It was said that Rafaeli and Kerr had been brought in to read for the role and that Bay, "will begin casting immediately" for the role.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details on Megan Fox's FIoUZttvlj5vrx|+|Transformers 3} replacement as soon as we have more information.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon was released June 29th, 2011.

      i don't care if fox can't act.. she was one of the only reasons why the 2nd did not get 0stars reviews.. cause she's hot like that and people, believe it or not, like hot people acting in movies... me as a person, not considering her bad acting, would only go to see transformers 3 just because megan fox would've been in it.. cause the second movie sucked ass... alot of the actors were bad not just megan fox, and megan fox is hot.. you see the point i am trying to make here...

          Well, we did see those pics of her on the set. And you all know how Movieweb has reported things, like that Emo kid for the new Spiderman and then it was, "Uh, well he's actually not in the running". So take this with a grain of salt. Bay is a retard and if he replaces Fox with some bimbo who hasn't put in the time, that all of the other cast has, it will be like she's trying to step in with the veterans of the TF movies, and it will look stupid and further erode the merits of the movies, if that's even possible. I'm not too much into Fox. She's hot of course, but Fox if the Transformers Babe and that's that. If Bay screws with his new found TF fans interests, he might as well scrap T3 and make Pearl Harbor II instead.

          I know that it's all about the explosions and the Transformer battles and CGI, but I'm tired of this soap opera type of actor replacements that seem so prevalent in cinema as of late. It nauseates me to no end!

          Leave it the way it is Bay, and work on a good story, and no more of these Fallen characters, who only a Prime can kill, when the fact of the matter is Megatron killed a Prime. So should Megatron have killed The Fallen dude and taken over? Hmmmm. Nice thoroughly thought out story Bay!

            Gemma Arterton is not that really memorable! When I here of her name all I think of is " Quantum of Solace" ...then when it comes to her face I draw a blank.... Gemma really doesn't have "IT"!!!

            Hmmmm ..I see by Gemma Arterton's filmography she was in: "RocknRolla" ... Again I draw a blank (Crickets chrip!) ...2 thngs come to mind on that film .. director Guy Ritchie ....& the dance between Gerard Butler & Thandie Newton!

            Gemma (& what a strange name ...!) doesn't have it!

                @mosorwvlad: That would never happen. This could actually happen.

                @WARRock: If they're both hot, then why wouldn't you want the one who can act better to be in the movie?

                                  Bit too late to replace, just add her in and film her more than Megan Fox.

                                        "Transformers 3 comes to theaters July 1st, 2011 and stars Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Julie White, Kevin Dunn, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Alan Tudyk, John Malkovich."

                                        MW really needs to update those things so they don't contrast with the article. TF3 stars Megan Fox yet she's being replaced? Interesting.

                                        Arterton was terrible in Clash of the Titans but I think that was more Letterier's fault than hers. She's a better actress than Fox, and good looking, so...whatever.

                                          Gemma was the only reason I lasted through the crap fest that was the new Clash of the Titans, I think she'll do well with material like Transformers, bad but so action packed and awesome looking you can't help but like it
