Attached to star and produce Fox Atomic comic adaptation 'Fathom', 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' beauty Megan Fox is also in talks to star in another comic book adaptation, 'Jonah Hex'.
Megan Fox is moving on from one feature film adaptation to another as the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" star lines up for roles in both "Jonah Hex" and "Fathom". While she is still in final negotiations for the "Jonah Hex" adaptation, the 22-year-old has been reported to be attached to star as well as produce "Fathom".
In "Jonah Hex", Fox will star opposite Josh Brolin and John Malkovich, who will be portraying the titular character Hex and the villain Turnbull respectively. She will take on a gun-wielding beauty and love interest of Hex named Leila. Meanwhile, in "Fathom", she is touted to play Aspen Matthews, a young woman who learns she is a member of a race of aquatic humanoids who possess the ability to control water.
"Jonah Hex" is directed by Jimmy Hayward with Mad Chance's Andrew Lazar and Weed Road's Akiva Goldsman serving as producers. The movie is prepping for filming which is scheduled to kick off in April. "Fathom", on the other hand, is yet to have any director attached. Still, the script will be provided by Jordan Mechner. Brian Austin Green, Megan Fox' former fiance, is to co-produce the movie with Fox, Peter Safran and Steve Bessen.
Having been known as Sydney Shanowski in sitcom "Hope & Faith", Megan Fox made her big break in the feature film with her Mikaela Banes role in "Transformers". She will be seen returning as Banes in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" when the action movie hits the U.S. big screen on June 24. On September 18, her other upcoming feature film, horror comedy "Jennifer's Body", will be debuted.
