'It somehow manages to be super-violent while still having a PG-13 rating,' teases the actress who plays Leila in the Josh Brolin-starring Western anti-hero adaptation.
"Jonah Hex" will be "super-violent" despite being a PG-13 movie, so claimed its female lead Megan Fox. When MTV Movies Editor Joshua Horowitz sat down with this star of "Jennifer's Body", the 23-year-old shared what to be expected from the DC Comics' adaptation.
"I think it's a really good interpretation of the comic," gushed Fox when responding to Horowitz's statement about the movie being kind of insane interpretation of the comics. She then added, "It somehow manages to be super-violent while still having a PG-13 rating. I don't know how they did that."
The "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" actress went on to talk about her co-stars. "It looks incredible and I've never been so blown away with the performances in an action film aside from my own as I am in this one," she revealed. "Because it's [Josh] Brolin and [John] Malkovich and Michael Fassbender, and these theater actors who are just phenomenons and brilliantly talented."
In this Warner Bros.' movie, Megan Fox stars as a prostitute named Leila. She has previously detailed her character to MTV. Noting that Leila "wasn't really featured in the comics", she explained that her character will be seen as a "sort of a tough, no-nonsense prostitute. Like, she'll shoot you in the head if she has to."
"Jonah Hex" is directed by Jimmy Hayward with Mad Chance's Andrew Lazar and Weed Road's Akiva Goldsman serving as producers. It is based on the DC Comics' Western anti-hero character created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga. Josh Brolin stars as the titular character, John Malkovich will portray Quentin Turnbull, and Will Arnett takes on the role of a Union soldier who enlists Jonah Hex as a bounty hunter. The movie is set to open in U.S. theaters June 18, 2010.
