Megan Fox, who made her name as Shia LaBeouf's sultry love interest in the first two "Transformers" movies, has been dropped from the third.

Paramount Pictures said Wednesday that Fox's option was not picked up for part three in the blockbuster Michael Bay series.

The studio, which released the first two movies, declined to give further details.

"Transformers" from 2007 and the 2009 sequel "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," have made over $1.5 billion worldwide.

Fox also starred last year as the title character in "Jennifer's Body," playing a possessed cheerleader who preys on high school boys.

The movie, written by Oscar-winning "Juno" writer Diablo Cody, made a disappointing $16.2 million domestically.
