Weekly Ketchup: Megan Fox leaves Transformers 3

Plus, the MacGyver gets serious in the wake of MacGruber

This week's Ketchup includes casting news for Transformers 3, director news for new versions of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Treasure Island, and news of remakes of Cinderella and Gidget.


FRESH DEVELOPMENTS


#1 MEGAN FOX TALKS HERSELF OUT OF STARRING IN TRANSFORMERS 3

Megan Fox's rise to fame has been so fast that it might be easy to forget that before Transformers came out in 2007, she had just some TV roles and had costarred in 2004's Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Transformers made Megan Fox a household name overnight, but her first solo film as a star, last year's Jennifer's Body, was a massive box office flop. While promoting that film however, Megan Fox also said this of Michael Bay, the director of the two Transformers movies that she starred in, "[he wants to] create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is." Whatever faults anyone may have with Michael Bay as a director or as a human being, Fox showed an ignorance of human tragedy to compare Bay to Adolph Hitler. There are plenty of people who weren't responsible for millions of deaths that Fox could have compared Bay to. And also, if you know your boss has a temper, is it really particularly wise to go around badmouthing him? This set off a flurry of back and forth letters between various parties defending either Michael Bay or Megan Fox. In October, things seemed to have been resolved, as Bay issued a public letter welcoming Fox back for Transformers 3, promising, "no alien robots will harm you in any way during production of this motion picture." Well, something has changed, because this week, as filming started, Megan Fox... is out of Transformers 3, to be replaced by a quickly-rewritten, new romantic interest for Shia LeBeouf's character. The initial report was that it was Michael Bay's decision, and also Paramount's decision, but Megan Fox's publicists of course immediately said that it was the actress' decision (including the report that Bay had been "verbally abusive" to Fox). As for who will replace Megan Fox, we should know the answer very soon (since the movie is currently filming!), but the initial report is that it may be British actress Gemma Arterton (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time). As for Megan Fox's post-Transformers future, she still has Jonah Hex coming out next month, but the advance buzz on the DC Comics adaptation is not particularly strong. This writer predicts that by 2011, we may well see the direct-to-video release of Jennifer's Body 2: Dead Sexy, and by 2013, Megan Fox might be lucky if she gets cast in Dancing with the Stars (only to then get voted out on week 1). Transformers 3 is scheduled for release on July 1, 2011 and costars John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and Patrick Dempsey.


#2 THE RACE TO REACH 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA

A few months back, Disney scrapped plans for McG (Terminator: Salvation) to direct a new adaptation of Jules Verne's 1869 novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, focusing on the character of Captain Nemo. Now, the studio has hired a very different director to take on the project, and it is fan favorite David Fincher (Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was of course also adapted by Walt Disney in 1954 as a live action adventure film, and was one of the studio's earliest non-animated box office successes. The screenwriter for this latest attempt will be Scott Z. Burns, who wrote The Informant!, cowrote The Bourne Ultimatum, and also has Steven Soderbergh's Contagion in the works (see below). Unlike McG's Captain Nemo project, this version is expected to be a more faithful adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and not a prequel. Fincher, who recently wrapped The Social Network, is expected to probably direct another movie while waiting for the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea script. This story, however, does not end there, as the next day after Disney's news broke, it was reported that 20th Century Fox also has a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea project in the works. But this version is set in the future. Fox's version is being produced by Ridley and Tony Scott's Scott Free Productions. The Scotts have been talking to Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) about possibly directing, although his development slate is very full already (including the possibility of Wanted 2). This futuristic version of Verne's story was written by Travis Beacham, one of the cowriters of the Clash of the Titans remake.


#3 ROBERT RODRIGUEZ BRINGING NEW (LIVE ACTION) LIFE TO FRANK FRAZETTA'S FIRE AND ICE

Wildly imaginative fantasy and science fiction artist Frank Frazetta died just 11 days ago on May 10, 2010, just as the final pieces were being put into place concerning one of his most revered creations. Although Frazetta's work was mostly in the form of novel and album covers, in the early 1980s, he worked with animator Ralph Bakshi on Fire and Ice, a fantastic and savage animated movie that used rotoscopic animation to bring Frazetta's artwork to life. And now, director Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn, Desperado; the upcoming Machete) has announced that his Troublemaker Studios has finalized acquisition of the rights to make a new live action version of Fire and Ice. Rodriguez didn't reveal exactly what he plans to do with Fire and Ice, but it seems likely that the project will utilize green screen filmmaking and CGI similar to Sin City, which Rodriguez co-directed with Frank Miller. Rodriguez had long been planning on making a new Red Sonja movie, and Fire and Ice seems like a thematic replacement for that project, as both feature scantily clad women, lots of swordplay and ample opportunities for gory action sequences.


#4 CINDERELLA IS THE LATEST DISNEY PRINCESS TO BENEFIT FROM THE SUCCESS OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND

The success of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland has led in recent months to development for live-action movies of similar properties, including multiple versions of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz and Maleficent, which will focus on the villainess of Sleeping Beauty. And now, Disney has hired a writer to adapt Cinderella as a live action movie. Disney has paid a 7 figure amount to screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna (27 Dresses, The Devil Wears Prada) to adapt the classic fairy tale. which also became the studio's 12th animated film in 1950. McKenna's upcoming projects also include Morning Glory, starring Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford and We Bought a Zoo, which was confirmed this week to be Cameron Crowe's next film. There is no word yet as to whether the new Cinderella will be 3D, or what sort of changes might be made to the story.


#5 MACGYVER GETS SERIOUS SCREENWRITER TO COUNTER THE SPOOF THAT IS MACGRUBER

On the very same day that the spoof MacGruber is being released, the producers of the long-planned MacGyver movie have hired a new screenwriter whose resume seems to tell us of their very different approach. New Line Cinema has hired Jason Richman (Bangkok Dangerous; cowriter of Bad Company) to adapt the classic 1985-1992 adventure TV series for the big screen. Richman also did uncredited work on Rush Hour 3 and Ridley Scott's very uncomedic Black Hawk Down. As The Hollywood Reporter describes the move, "New Line plans to make MacGyver straight-laced but still keep it fun."




#6 THE TREASURE ISLAND ULTIMATUM

Director Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Supremacy) had recently been reported as being in talks with James Cameron about directing the 3D remake of Fantastic Voyage, in which scientists shrink down to microscopic size to save a dying man. The director has decided to drop out to focus instead on a "stylized adaptation" of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic pirate novel Treasure Island. This new take on the classic tale of Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver and the hunt for buried treasure is being developed at Warner Bros by one of the producers of Sherlock Holmes. There's no word yet as to who is adapting the Treasure Island script.


#7 THE ORIGAMI KILLER STRIKES BACK: HEAVY RAIN THE MOVIE

Heavy Rain for the Playstation 3 has been a hit video game this year since its release in February, selling over 1 million copies. Back in 2006, New Line Cinema optioned the rights to the game about the search for a serial killer who leaves origami figures as a calling card. Those rights apparently lapsed, however, as this week the film rights were put up for auction. The winning bid reportedly came from Unique Pictures, the new production company of Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, former executives at New Line Cinema (apparently, they really, really wanted to make the movie after all). The gloomy visuals and themes of Heavy Rain are being compared to David Fincher's Seven, which was an early hit for New Line under Shaye and Lynne's control. There's no word yet as to who Unique Pictures will hire to write or direct the Heavy Rain adaptation.


#8 MATT DAMON AND SEVERAL OTHER STARS ARE INFLICTED WITH STEVEN SODERBERGH'S CONTAGION

The next film for director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Erin Brockovich) is called Contagion, and the Warner Bros production has an impressive ensemble cast. Matt Damon, who has worked with Soderbergh previously (all three Ocean's movies and The Informant!) will be joined by Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law. Of those five actors, Jude Law is the only one who is not an Academy Award winner (although Damon's Oscar was for cowriting Good Will Hunting, not acting). Contagion is a thriller about a virus outbreak that is expected to be stylistically similar to Traffic. Contagion was written by screenwriter Scott Z. Burns, who also previously worked with Matt Damon on The Informant! and on The Bourne Ultimatum, which Burns cowrote. Scott Z. Burns is also working on the David Fincher 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea project mentioned above. Warner Bros has announced a release date for Contagion of October 21, 2011, and the movie will also be released in 3D.


ROTTEN IDEAS OF THE WEEK


#2 SCREENWRITER BROUGHT IN TO GIVE TEEN SPIDER-MAN REBOOT THAT 80S FEEL

Perhaps someone at Sony misheard their superior's instructions when it came to hiring the latest screenwriter for their teen-oriented Spider-Man reboot. It might be understandable that they would want the script to have a certain "80s" vibe (John Hughes, Steven Spielberg, etc). What Sony got instead is someone who is IN his 80s: 83-year-old screenwriter Alvin Sargent (1980's Ordinary People, 1973's Paper Moon). In addition to those 30+ year old Oscar favorites, Alvin Sargent does also have the distinction of having worked on all three previous Spider-Man movies (although he was uncredited for the first one), and he had actually been working on Spider-Man 4 before the plug was pulled. Sargent is said to be giving the reboot a "production polish" on a draft by screenwriter Jamie Vanderbilt (Basic, Zodiac). This is one of this week's Rotten Ideas, because the idea of rebooting Spider-Man to appeal to the Twilight crowd remains a questionable proposition, and Sargent's work on Spider-Man 3 didn't help save that movie from being a disappointment either.


#1 GIDGET GETS REBOOTED FOR THE GRANDKIDS OF HER ORIGINAL FANS

Gidget was a popular teen female character in the late 1950s and 1960s, starring in three movies with three different stars, and launching the career of Sally Field with the short-lived 1965 TV series. First appearing in the 1957 novel Gidget: The Little Girl With Big Ideas, the premise of Gidget was that she was an all-American girl who was just crazy about one of the hot new fads of the time (surfing, the Beach Boys, etc.). And now, thanks to a collaboration between the producers of Forever Plaid and the producer of Letters to Juliet and Piranhas 3-D, Gidget is in line to be revived as both a feature film and a new TV series. There's no writers or other creative staff attached to Gidget just yet. Producer Mark Canton describes the appeal of Gidget this way, "with female surfing exploding across the globe, the time is right to bring her back in a major way." Of course, female surfing was a pretty big thing in 2002 as well, and Blue Crush only made back a little bit more than its budget. The Gidget reboot is another Rotten idea because it feels like Hollywood trying to force a tired old franchise on today's kids, and I have a feeling they're too hip to ride this particular wave. Of course, they also love Twilight...

The Megan Fox news should be both Fresh and Rotten developments. On one note, her "meh" performance and useless purpose in the films is gone, but on the other they're just getting a new "hot chick" to replace her, which imo is a very rotten idea.

Bay should just stop with the humans/romance elements, they add nothing to the movie and if anything take away from what the focus of the movies should be: The Autobots/Decepticons. They should be the stars of the show and get some real character development, not more crap romance subplots or crappy humor with his parents.

I'd totally see Transformers 3 if they cast Gemma Arterton. Only because of her would I subject myself to another Transformers movie.

What I mean by that is its a Transformers movie. Who cares about plot or characters. All people want is explosions and chicks. That's why they hired Bay to do them. That's all he's decent at.

The fact is Fox leaving doesn't mean a thing. The one who should be fired is the one who wrote the crap script. Do we need another Transformers Movie? Wait, no we don't.

Interestingly, the same guys who wrote Transformers 2 wrote Star Trek. And while TF2 was resoundingly awful, it still had a few funny jokes (my favorite being "Is that your car?" "No, it's my friend's. He just went to see if he could find you a tighter shirt." "There isn't one, I've checked!" *fist bump*) So I think it was probably Bay's creative control rather than the screenwriters themselves who were responsible for the pile of sh.it TF2 turned out to be.

Agreed! Transformers should be about, get this Michael Bay, TRANSFORMERS! They didn't make a bagillion dollars off the franchise because of the heartwarming romantic storyline but because of badass robots, who also sadly had the best acting of the film. Hopefully an autobot accidentally steps on all the main human characters from the other movies and thus forces the concentration to be purely on robots.

Lindsey Lohan has managed to avoid porn for all this time despite massive debt and no work, so Fox might be able to postpone her transition to porn for a little while, too, but given her acting talent (or lack thereof), she might even have a hard time finding work there. :)

Megan Fox news is good, now if only the plug would get pulled on the movie, all would be righ in the world!

Contagion actually sounds like it has some very good potential, not to mention the crazy good cast. Keeping an eye on that one.

Heavy Rain might actually be decent if handled correctly; we'll have to wait and see who they cast as director and screenwriter to get an idea what direction they are going to go with it.

That news about 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is so awesome! Fincher is one of the best alive, and the fact that they kicked McG off of it only to replace him with a great director like Fincher makes me extremely happy! If only Warner Bros. would have kicked McG from Terminator: Salvation and put Fincher on that! How freaking badass would that movie have been then??

Love Frank Frazetta's artwork, really unique and revolutionary. Death Dealer anyone?

I have 2 ways to go with the Megan fox story.
#1 if they get rid off all the human story, I will definetly run to watch it hopefully get to see Unicorn.
#2 if they still having humans at the center of the story with sam as the main guy and no Megan Fox, I an skyping she was the only good thing worth watching on Transformers 2. Damn she is hot.

I thought Bay and his writers nixed Unicron, saying he was too big and would take away the focus from the human element, or some such nonsense. As if Bay's movies ever had a human element to begin with.

Who wants to bet that Fox's 20K will definitely suck? I mean, in the FUTURE? With the guy who "wrote" the new Clash? Meh. Plus, Bekmambutov sucks.
The other one has promise, as I am a fan of the writer and director.

Contagion has the potential to be awesome! Can't wait.

Hell yes to anything Rodriguez (except family movies)

Don't care for Megan at all, don't find her attractive in the least.

Why make a movie based on Heavy Rain? It's already a movie...

MEH to Cinderella (didn't especially care for the cartoon, either - extremely stereotypical)

Treasure Island by Greengrass sounds kewl

Def skipping the new Spidey (only watched the others cos of Raimi) & I don't know who Gidget is, so don't care.

Fox doing porn? Probably not officially, but a sex tape will come soon.

The next stage of her career will be in "reality" TV...

You heard it here first...as much as you all (irrationally) hate Transformers, you have to admit she is dumb to leave it for ANY reason...this WAS her career.

That Guy

I can't say I'm particularly sad about Megan Fox. She never seemed instrumental to the movies. And, like people have said, they should give more time to develop the robots outside of just racial stereotypes and Optimus Prime, in that order.

On the other hand, I am disappointed because it seemed like they were actually going somewhere with Mikaela and Sam. I will miss the continuity they were trying to make. They could recast her. But between Saavik in Star Trek, Rachel in Batman, and Rhodey in Iron Man I have never felt the change to be better. The second actor never seems to fit as well and it's always awkward to see.

O.K. I don't know what frightens me more, the fact that Megan Fox thinks she has talent and can actually have a career outside of the Transformers franchise or the fact that somehow Michael Bay convinced Frances McDormand and John Malkovich to be in TRANSFORMERS 3.

A) Transformers is a fun franchise...why wouldn't they be in it?
B) Acting is their job, why would they turn down a gig?
C) Don't pretend you didn't like the movies...you would not have watched the second if you didn't like the first...and you would have to be a complete d-bag to like the 1st and then dump on the entire franchise because of the 2nd not being as good (which it was)

~the idea of rebooting Spider-Man to appeal to the Twilight crowd remains a questionable proposition~

I was very much opposed to the decision to reboot this franchise, but the liberal usage of the line above is really starting to piss me off. I'm asking this to Greg Dean Schmitz and anybody else who may take the time to read this:

1) Where is the statement from anyone at Sony or anybody working on the project that the Spider-Man reboot will try to appeal to the Twilight fans? Has any such statement even been made? If so, who and when and in what context? If not, the statement is nothing more than wild speculation, just like the pointless rumor that Zac Efron would be the new Spider-Man.

2) Am I the only one around here that has read the Ultimate Spider-Man comics? These comics were all set during Peter's high school years. And guess what? A lot of them were good! Am I really supposed to believe that just because Peter Parker is going to high school, he's suddenly another Edward Cullen? Peter Parker in high school is a road well-travelled, in several different mediums. To not acknowledge this simple fact is willful ignorance.

@Cory B. You have to read between the lines. Maybe, as you get older, you will become adept at that. It's been my experience that members of your generations want everything telegraphed to them. They want definitive, "Yes, we're doing THIS" statements, but that's not how corporations, lawyers and politicians work.
When they say, they're going younger, trying to make it more dark and edgy, and bring Spidey back to high school, it's rather obvious they're going for the fruitful and easily hooked tweeners and high-schoolers.
They see money in that crowd, and for good reason. It's roughly that demographic that pumps such garbage as Avatar and Transformers Revenge to such high heights.
And with a high school Spidey, they can tap into that high school market, and bring in boys and girls with high school hijinks and romances. They're going to pull hard for that Twilight audience.
Read between the lines, it's all there.

AHHHH! I know! Couldn't have said it better.

Cory FTW

May 22 - 12:46 PM

Cory

Cory B

So nobody has said anything to that effect. Thank you for the clarification.

The connection between "taking Spidey to high school" and "pandering outright to the Twilight crowd" is a weak one if you ask me. On one hand, people of high school age were pretty excited about all three previous Spider-Man movies to begin with. Why? Because Spider-Man is an iconic character that appeals to a broad range of people. I don't see pandering to the Twilight crowd as beneficial at all, and if I can see that Sony surely can.. On the other, you have Ultimate Spider-Man, which took Peter back to high school and clearly did NOT go out of its way to tap into the "tween fangirls drooling over shirtless emo twits" demographic that Twilight seems to have a monopoly on.

Now, if they choose Morbius The Sparkly Vampire Who Looks Vaguely Like the Joker as the main villain, THEN we'll have something meaningful. Until then, we have no reason at all to believe that the Spider-Man reboot will be a Twilight knock-off.

May 22 - 10:53 PM

mjprogue

Mike PArker

Thank you and you are correct...no reason to believe the Twilight road is the one they're taking...BUT it is possible, in which case Fox will need to tighten security at their headquarters...

Oh and if they did go with Mobius, it would be the exact opposite of Twilight...which did not have any actual vampires in it...unless of course they pretty Mobius up and make him sparkle

I decided to ignore his point about Avatar, because it isn't an argument worth having with people like him. However, putting Avatar in the same company as TF2 told me everything I needed to know about him.

Sorry Cory, but the "news" around here is the same as in all online entertainment venues: just another blog disguised as news. These "reporters" can't help but to spit out a blanket opinion, no matter how populist and unfounded it is.

As for Spider-Teen, I'm still hoping for a feature length version of the recent Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon, where a kid Peter story succeeded. Or at least a script from the same writers of that show.

Thank you. Another good example of Spider-Man in high school, and it worked. So why not here?

I like to think you're wrong about RT as a whole. An article like this is supposed to have some opinion/commentary in it, but not unfounded opinion.

Ultimate Spider-man is good, and if they go that route then it would be good, but if they try to appeal to the twlight crowd that's going to suck...what the hell are they going to do make spider-man emo and glitter in the sun light? That would be beyond gay. Why are going to appeal to the twilight crowd with a super hero movie? It's bad enough that we have to even hear about those twilight movies much less let them ruin the superhero genre.

All that said, I agree the news is definitely rotten. On top of everything Greg mentioned, what's the point of rebooting a franchise and then hiring someone that worked on all three previous films? Makes no sense at all.

i think they should just make megan fox come and get killed by a decepticon in like the beginning of the films villains arrivals attacks for transformers 3, cuz then it would atleast give the film some sort of emotional scene. even tho i doubt any one wuld give a ****.

Should they even make a big deal out of Megan Fox leaving the transformers franchise? I've noticed There's been so much trash talk about her. Really? Is there any justification for all the hate? Maybe because she's mostly eye candy in a film that has no point of existing in the first place. I'm sure all the guys that "hate" Megan Fox or "don't find her attractive" would drop their jaws if they met her in person. Guys will be guys. Just saying.

REBOOT OF SPIDER-MAN Series..............
I Think This A Good Decision.
Because Spider-man 3 Brings A Good Ending For A Spider-man Series. In The Climax Piter Discovers That Flint Marko had no intention of killing Ben Parker, and that it was an accident born out of a desperate attempt to save his daughter Penny's life, who was dying and that Ben Parker's death has haunted him for the rest of his life. Peter forgives Marko. Peter and Harry forgive each other before Harry dies.And Peter and Mary Jane begin to mend their relationship.

This Is The End. How Could Be A Spider-man Story Ends Better Than This.

I Am Glad To Watch A Fresh SPIDER-MAN REBOOT With 80S FEEL.

Spider-Man 3 was awful, horrible and disgraceful to any superhero movie ever created. The movie lacked emotional feeling, acting and hell, even lighting. They may as well have cast Megan Fox as the lead role.
