According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the story, it's unclear whether the film's lead trio Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper and Jonathan Daniel Brown would return for a follow-up.

But Megan Fox, who was replaced as the romantic lead in the third Transformers film by Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, has unexpected praise for her successor.

"I haven't seen it so I don't know what she's like in it but I think having seen her around she's a very likable girl and I don't think she did anything wrong by taking that part," Fox told Next Movie.

"I mean Mike [Bay] wanted her in the movie. She was a model and she was like, 'Yeah, I'll be in Transformers 3'. And I've only heard good things about her so I have nothing negative to say."

Although Fox hasn't seen the third Transformers, she plans to watch the movie as she was impressed by the trailer.

"I wanted to see it as soon as it came out but I knew I couldn't go to the theatre so I'll just have to Netflix it," she shared. "But yeah, I want to see it. I thought the trailer looked incredible.
 
"And you know there's a part of me that wants to hate the trailer when it comes out, pick it apart and be like 'I saw that in the second one', and I couldn't.

"I was like, 'Wow, the trailer's f**king amazing.' It was. I don't know about the movie, I'm going to see it, but I was impressed."
