Megan Fox is appearing in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Jennifer’s Body this year, but Megan Fox has signed on to star in Jonah Hex with Josh Brolin and John Malkovich in Warner Brothers’ adaptation of the DC Comics series. But that’s not her only comic book movie role! Megan has also signed on to star and develop a feature adaptation of Fathom, the comic book series from artist Michael Turner that was the inspiration for his publisher – Aspen Comics.
In Jonah Hex, MeganFox will play Leila, a gun toting sexy beauty and love interest of Jonah Hex, a disfigured bounty hunter who is tracking down a voodoo practitioner that wants to raise an army of undead to liberate the South. Jimmy Hayward will direct the adaptation starting in April for a August 6th, 2010 release. In Fathom, Fox will play the lead character Aspen, who learns she is a member of a race of aquatic humanoids who possess the ability to control water. That adaptation is being written by Jordan Mechner, the creator of the Prince of Persia video game who just got a start writing screenplays with the Prince of Persia movie.
James Cameron in his undying affection for the ocean was once attached to produce, but has since left the project. Fox is trying to bring it back from the depths of script shelves and onto the screen. Jordan Mechner, the creator of video game “Prince of Persia,” is writing it for her.
Maybe with a studio movie, she can finally prove herself has a leading lady in a action movie.
