Michael Bay on "Transformers 4": Megan Fox Isn't In It

Although the first film in the franchise made her a household name, it looks like Megan Fox will not be returning for "Transformers 4."

While at the premiere for his new film "Pain & Gain," director Michael Bay quickly told E! News "no" Miss Fox will not be returning, adding, "Because it's a totally different story, it's with Mark Wahlberg and his daughter."

Aside from Megan not returning, original stars Shia LaBeouf and Fox's replacement Rosie Huntington Whiteley are also suspected not to come back for the fourth installment.

Though the newest flick will be different than the first three, Bay explains there will be a connection, "It's the same [world]," adding, "You have the three movies, but there's a reason why there's a new cast. And it's explained very clearly when you see it, and it's going to feel natural. So it's not like we're starting over or anything like that."
