    I'm sure I havent seen this discussed so I decided to post a thread and find out. ROTF had the writers strike and Shia's hand injury to mess up with story and production time.

    I wonder if the script was already completed before Megan bailed out because if it was then it would mean the writers would have to adjust the story again for Rosie Huntington, which I fear will conflict with the robots screen time, but I hope not. Your thoughts?

    I don't think it's going to slow down the production because they seem to be set on the idea again of rushing out a film instead of taking their time. Could just be the pessimist in me but it kind of feels like another rush to cash in rather than lets think things out about how we could make a better movie.

    What it could slow down is the story since it's unclear how they are going to explain how the Megan Fox character is gone now and Rosie Huntington's character is the new girl in Sam's life.

    All Kruger's gotta do is scratch out "Mikaela" in the script, and put "New Love Interest". Doesn't look like it's slowed down at all. If Bay's moving like lightning with 3-D, then this isn't even a minor bump in the road.

    I have to agree that imagining any issue with a character in a Bay film will slow things down in the least is highly unlikely.

    Likely the script was revamped within days of the change and honestly, the big, actiony stuff wouldn't be effected one iota save that they'd need to film any such scenes the new actress is in.

    I'm surprised so many people have an issue with the actress switch. The only thing Megan Fox brought to the table was non-CGI eye candy and that's it. Easily replaceable. I'm sure the new girl will have just as much running around to do and will get just as many 360 degree glamour shots at sunset as Megan did.

    It's funny, but remember, Shia can get pretty much any piece he wants any night of the week. We're talking about a guy who nailed Rihanna. So his need for manual satisfaction is probably minimal at this point.

    I doubt it. I could probably pop out a workable rewrite in a couple days for them to work with and a more refined one within a week. We don't know for sure how much time there was between Megan leaving and us hearing she left. Enough time for them to begin casting. So I have no doubts that a new romantic subplot would have been easy to work in.

    They went on 1 date, and even spoke with tabloids about how they just didn't click. Sure, it was a tabloid, so the legitimacy of what they printed is questionable; but so is the likelihood that Shia put his Fella in her Ella ella ella.
