Megan Fox as RED SONJA?
A while back, we readers and writers were informed that Rose McGowan was to dawn the broadsword and chain-mail for the RED SONJA reboot. Yesterday, Pajiba reported something quite different: Megan Fox could play RED SONJA? It is a definite possibility.
McGowan (who was the original choice for Sonja) was recently cast in CONAN as an evil witch, which all but slays rumors of a SONJA/CONAN crossover. Fans were worried that the project had been scrapped, but in fact it's gone through a complete makeover, as director Douglas Aarniokoski is also reported to have left the project. Millenium Films, trying their best not to let down those looking forward to the flick, made the offer to Megan Fox not too long ago.
Tell me this humble writer is not alone in thinking that Fox and RED SONJA are fated to be. As many have pointed out, Fox is at near perfect age for the character, given that the story revolves around an innocent teen turned bawdy bad-ass (and we all know Megan Fox is bawdy). And this is just the kind of thing she's proven herself watchable in. Given Fox's underwhelming work outside of the "hot girlfriend" in explosive action films, it could prove good for Fox to do a little ass-kicking of her own.
