Megan Fox’s Hot Possible ‘Transformers’ Replacements Are Already Being Lined Up

Sorry, Heidi Montag; you’ve just received some heavy-duty competition in your bid to replace recently ousted hottie Megan Fox in the upcoming Transformers 3.

Since the announcement yesterday that Fox wouldn’t be reprising her role as Mikaela Banes in the third Transformers flick, a number of names have been placed in the running to fill her shoes. So far the front-runner appears to be British Prince of Persia actress Gemma Arterton, also known for portraying Io in this year’s Clash of the Titans and Strawberry Fields in the 2008 James Bond film Quantum of Solace. Arterton has supposedly already entered talks to join the Transformers 3 cast.

Arterton may be out in front of the pack, but there are other beauties hot on her trail. Models Bar Refaeli, Miranda Kerr and Brooklyn Decker are also said to be in contention for the film and, while Decker—who’s currently filming the Jennifer Aniston film Just Go With It—is the only one of the three with any acting experience, any one would go a long way toward maintaining the Transformers franchise’s pretty quotient.

It’s believed that the studio will be abandoning the Mikaela Bane character in favor of creating a new love interest for star Shia LaBeouf’s Sam Witwicky character.
