Megan Fox, the over-admired brunette Barbie doll from Transformers, is set to star in not one but two comic book properties.
First up is Jonah Hex, based on the popular Western comic. Fox is in final talks to play Leila, the love interest of the title character to be played by Josh Brolin. Brolin playing this role sounds like it could really hurt my chances of seeing him taking on a somewhat similar role as the lead in Preacher. Damn. John Malkovich will play the bad guy.
Second, we have a film called Fathom, based on a comic about a mermaid who is a member of a race of beings who can ”control water.” Whatever that means.
I have this feeling like ever since Transformers, when everybody went nuts over this girl, we keep hearing about her supposedly starring in all kinds of stuff but we’ve never actually seen her in anything else yet. Now we’ve got Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen and this is the first that anyone’s seen of her since the first movie. Is it possible she’s a figment of Michael Bay’s imagination? I’m thinking probably.
