Megan Fox For Red Sonja?
It’s a rumour that will make teenage fan boys all over the land drool into their Cherios – the role of chainmail bikini-clad, broadsword-wielding, kick-ass barbarian beauty has been offered to Megan Fox.
Rose McGowan was initially lined up for the role (which led to some tasty teaser artwork that you can see here), but it looks like that’s no longer the case as she’s been offered a role in the forthcoming Conan. As both stories are set in the same universe, it would seem a bit strange to cast her twice.
And McGowan’s change is not the only departure. It looks as if the project as it was initially announced has pretty much been scrapped – director Doug Aarniokoski (Highlander: Endgame) has also left preceedings and writer are now being sought to flesh out David N White’s script.
Producer Robert Rodriguez looks like he’s still attached though – he’s previously told MTV that whether or not Red Sonja goes ahead will be dependent on the success of Conan. But really, what’s more likely to make money for the Hollywood suits? A muscle-bound relative unknown or smoking-hot semi-clad barbarian babe. Hmmm…
