Megan Fox in Two More Comic Book Movies - Jonah Hex & Fathom

Whether or not you think she's a great actress, Megan Fox is hot in more ways than one. Not only is she in the Transformers movies, but she is padding her resume with two more big comics to movie adaptations...

This from FirstShowing.net...

In Jonah Hex, Fox will play Leila, a gun-wielding beauty and love interest of 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 that 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.

She's perfect for Aspen.

Fathom is Turner's book right?

If so, then AWESOME!

my wife loves fathom and she loved micheal turner, and she cried when he passed, and she does have the body for the role.
the combination of brolin and fox just sounds to good to be true, for one she is smokin hot and he has turned into a good actor since the "goonies" :).

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As happy as I am that the Fathom movie is finally becoming a reality, it fills me up with sadness that Michael Turner won't be able to enjoy his masterpiece turned into a movie. Turner was a genius and I believe Fathom, as well as Soulfire, are way overdure to become motion pictures.

Now when is Tobey Maguire gonna finally start working on Robotech???????

Megan Fox is becoming a movie whore... and I like it! She could play any role and it would be fine with me. Just getting to watch her on screen is great entertainment in itself.

[frick] robotech make a macross movie, robotech's just a cheesy american ripoff of macross, but what i want is a gundam movie or neon genesis evangelion movie which news just actually came out about!!!

She's basically the female equivalent of Keanu Reeves; an attractive person getting work based solely on how they look and their popularity and not an inch based on their non-existing acting talent.

joob234 - A Neon Genesis Evangelion movie would be very cool, however if you think about it, a deep story like that would most likely get butchered in favor of its downsizing for a proper run time... unless they commit to a trilogy and tell it in three movies like LOTR.
joob234
joob234 - 3/4/2009, 1:38 PM
ya thats wat i read they were planning weapon x a trilogy, jsut hope it gets a good director, cuz thyeve been planning a neon movie for a while now and news just came out about it again, thats y i brought it up.

but as for megan fox......... its cool and all her being cast as these in a way, but its basic typecasting right here. a prime example
WeaponX
WeaponX - 3/4/2009, 2:13 PM
That's good, at the very least, they're showing respect to the story. Hopefully they do get the right talent together to do it.

Hex is a new one but if you check the Fathom thread then it's been posted for a while that she was being fondled for the role. I'm not too familiar with the comic story, mostly the pictures *cough* I draw! Sickos... Anyway, she's definitely hot and although not an awesome actress (she's still new) she does really well on screen I think and after watching Streetfighter and wanting to vomit, Fox definitely can't do worse than some of the acting in that movie. I look forward to Fathom.

I'm even more hopeful for the Metal Gear movie! *drool*

BillyBlack - 3/4/2009, 2:35 PM
For starters,

Betty, you're a sick twist... and that's cool by me.

Megan Fox finally got her career in high gear and dumped the jagoff from 90210. Let's hope she doesn't get obsessed with collecting orphans or become a Jebus freak. Or even quit acting altogher to become a rapper!

She wasnt that bad in Transformers...at least, she didnt annoy me, and in a Bay movie thats a hard thing!..and you know what else is a hard thing?

obvious joke high five!

LEEE777, Turner died last year, June 27th. He was diagnosed with bone cancer (chondrosarcoma) back in 2000 and he couldn't win the battle. We lost a great artist but heaven gained one... :)

I'm very happy about this casting. Other ideas are:

Killian - Karl Urban
Cannon Hawke - somebody other than The Rock (although he does look the part)
Kiani - Jessica Biel
Chance Calloway - Channing Tatum
Admiral James Maylander - Sam Elliot
Taras - Triple H (he doesn't have to do much, so he'll do ok)
Siphon - John Glover

I just came up with these out of the top of my head, so I'm not 100% sure the faces match, but it's a good guess.

[frick] the metal gear movie, go for the gears of war movie!!!!

but shes an ok actor i guess, but i have a feeling shes being typecast for fathom just for her looks

"but shes an ok actor i guess, but i have a feeling shes being typecast for fathom just for her looks"

Eh, isn't that half the battle there? I'm pretty sure Julia Roberts is a way better actress, but she just doesn't look the part.

Michael Turner was one of the best comic illustrators of our time. I really hope they do this movie justice and don't skimp on the story. He really deserves to have it dedicated to him as well. Which I don't doubt they'll do!
CyborgNinja
CyborgNinja - 3/4/2009, 3:45 PM
I never caught how much the internet said about streetfighter, and was a step away from buying a bootleg until I caught the movie online and was amazed they ruined it yet again. I mean come on. The fight with Vega was done in like, 30 sec?

Metal Gear was an awesome game, hands down. Gears of War will make a badass sci-fi flic as long as it's R rated and I'm hopefull for God of War(don't cast djimon as kratos!) and Prince of Persia. Games are as great a resource for movies as comics, but plenty of them get chewed up and spit out. Bloodrayne was a hot game, and the movie was sci-fi channel worthy. Resident evil was cool, but would have liked something more gritty and dark.

I'm pretty sure Julia Roberts is still in that wet paper bag I asked her to act her way out of.... Yep, still in there.
MarkCassidy
MarkCassidy - 3/4/2009, 3:58 PM
haha, yeah shes shit..a big gob and an annoying laugh pretty much sums up Miss Roberts. Im halfway throgh Street Fighter and its a [frick]ing abomination! Why cant people get these things even half decent? Is it the curse of Game to Movie adaps that they all have to suck ass?
CyborgNinja
CyborgNinja - 3/4/2009, 4:01 PM
It seems that way Rorschach. M.C.Duncan wasn't a bad balrog, but it just seemed like bisons lethal enforcing was a big black dude named balrog. I don't pretend to know all the background story to everyone, but it just didn't feel like it was "street fighter".
joob234
joob234 - 3/4/2009, 4:31 PM
all i have to say is if they ever make a halo movie, i better be good or ill go [frick]ing nuts. havew a good director also, thats the problem with all these game to film movies bad director and bad script! hopefully the gears of war movie will be good cuz it has a pretty good director, len wiseman (die hard 4, underworld).

but me and Weapon X want a neon genesis evangelion movie!!!!
or gundam, thatd be dope!

street fighter was meh, the Vega fight was over way too fast and being that Chun Li was the main char you would think that they would have stuck to her actual back story the only thing that was the same was Bison killed her dad and Gen trained her in the martial arts after her dad. Gen's back story was right on but Charlie is in the Air force not part of Interpol that is where Chun Li works and for christ sake Rose is not Bison's child WTF was that! The only good part was Duncan as Balrog.

Now i think Fox looks like Aspen and i read somewhere that she said she has been a fan of the comics since they debuted so that is a plus, and since she is producing in someway maybe she will push for the crappy changes they make to be fixed, I really really want this movie to turn out well the comic is in my top 5 favs of all time.

mm Jonah Hex, seems blasphemy guess she'll be clothed in that one. Never did read Fathom but the images I saw where beatiful (and I don't mean it just because she was always half naked in those) but the drawings were really great, sad to hear Turner passed away, indeed that man could deffinitely use a pencil and from what I gathered, the story looked good.

Now if only we could know who's directing Fathom and hopefully it's not some awfull douche, and I (cringe) hope the writer did something good with Prince of Persia (although being a videogame, I'm possitive it will suck).

Mmm Metal Gear Solid movie, that would be cool, unless James Wong directed it, then he'd just put Snake in high school to appeal to "everyone".

Fathom is an awesome comic...its should look VISUALLY AMAZING, when they bring it to LIFe of the SILVER SCREEN. I hope they choose good SHOOTING AREAS to make the movie...like Hawaii, or New Zealand, and tropical seaside places....the movie shouldnt be hard to make.

Megan Fox is PEFECT FOR ASPEN.
I just hope that she can ACT BETTER as she makes more movies down the road...For now she is JUST EYE CANDY....or should I say when she TANS she is eye candy lol.

if its not rated "R" then i am not watching it in the theatres. I will not pay to reinforce that type of behavior.

@ rorschach01

I concur for the most part. I did enjoy some of the Final Fantasy stuff however, not sure that counts though. I would also place Julia's annoying laugh firmly in the "Kackle" category.

and dude, TheSoulEater

the "humina humina humina" knocked me outta my chair. awesome.

I hope shes in every movie. Fox is smoking hot. Any guy who says otherwise might as well come out of the closet. Shes so fine i'd drink her bath water. Shes so fine I'd sleep with 3 of her fat friends just to get close to her. And I heard she broke up with that guy from 90210. Somebody better put him on suicide watch, cause you know hes missin that ass. He's probably a xanax away from jumpin off a bridge. Point being, Shes hotter than a hooker in church. Nuff said.

"if its not rated "R" then i am not watching it in the theatres. I will not pay to reinforce that type of behavior."
