Will Megan Fox be taking over for Rose McGowan on Red Sonja?

04.05.2010

As part of her ongoing quest to be attached to every female-oriented action film, it seems Megan Fox may be in line to replace Rose McGowan in RED SONJA. In all fairness, this is hardly Fox's fault; she's been reportedly offered the role but it's unclear what her level of interest is. While I'm hardly the biggest Megan Fox fan in the world, I think she's a better choice than McGowan (though I think there are easily better choices out there than Megan Fox).

So does that mean the RED SONJA film is still in the works? It does seem so but it looks as if the version we'll see will be largely different than the version McGowan and Robert Rodriguez were pimping at Comic-Con a few years ago. Director Douglas Aarniokoski is no longer attached to the film and a new writer is being hired to overhaul the original script by David White. It's unclear whether Rodriguez is still actively involved in shepherding the film.

I'm going to guess that Nu Image/Millennium are going to keep this project moving through various phases of development until CONAN hits theaters and they can more actively gauge the audience interest in this world. If CONAN winds up being a hit, I'll be RED SONJA will be greenlit rather quickly.

So what do you think about Megan Fox as Red Sonja? I think Rachel Nichols would be a far better choice but she's already in CONAN as a separate role. If not Fox then who?

What a huge mistake, she doesn't have the acting chopss...AT ALL!

1st off if it weren't for the 1st Transformers, she would be nobody. Eventually people will realize that she has nil acting ability! This does'nt need to be remade not that the 1st was any good at all. But this is a huge mistake. Her trying to fight is laughable to say the least! Booo!!!

Megan Fox has to stick her finger in every pie, it seems. I wish she'd just get used to the idea that she sucks. And I don't mean sexually. She's like a bad smell that just refuses to blow away.

Bad idea.

Two Words

Diora. Baird.

Fox and McGowan were both horrible for this. Diora is stacked, looks absolutely sexy in red hair and doesn't look like she needs to eat a sandwich! Give her a week or two with a trainer and I'd bet she'd be good with a sword as well!

Better Choice

Megan fox is ok, but Rachel Nichols is ideal for the role. She has the height (5'10") Body and can handle action roles pretty well(Alias, G.I.Joe) Also with Rachel being in Conan, she might show she can do it.

Megan Fox

She would no doubt look great in the costumes, but I don't think she is right for this part. I also agree that depending on how well CONAN does will dictate if the actress is even an issue. I would Love to see Rodriquez stay on the project as I love his work.

It can't be as bad as the original. Reguardless of who the star Actress is. Like Arnold said in a magazine I was reading a while back. How he would punish his kids he would make them watch Red Sonja and I quote.

Here's a better idea

Why don't they scrap the whole thing & put that money towards something original instead? I'm getting tired of remakes of dumb movies.

Jessica Biel

God knows the woman has the physical fitness to handle the role, and there are worse actresses out there. I'd also +1 Christina Hendricks: she's an excellent actress and would look great in a breastplate. ;)

It's a shame she isn't in line for the role. She's actually a good actress, despite appearing in mostly bad movies.

I like FOX but...

she's got the face but not the body, RED is much fuller and muscular, FOX is really skinny and with less atributes than the character of SONJA, I still prefer MCGOWAN.

She said that Transformers 2 was very physical. Does she think that a role of a sword wielding woman warrior will be any easier?

Not for Fox

I'd drop double loads on Fox all day, but she is not right for this. This needs an action chic like Rachel Nichols or Jessica Biel even.

I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED ...

... if Fox drops out of the movie too. Getting Sonja of the ground seems to difficult, it will happen, but Fox definitely doesn't fit the role.

Uma

Uma would own in this. I know hollywood can only cast 14-year old girls with boobjobs but if you want a real woman and a good actress Uma is the best choice.

Of course Uma is always my choice.

I think Rose was the perfect actress for the role, and the CG'd poster was proof enough. I guess this changes things a bit. However I can buy a megan fox red sonja. She's got a piercing, cold stare that could easily embody that warrior spark. Plus she's smokin hot.

I mean I personally won't be mad. But they should use a real red head at least.

It doesnt matter, unless...

she is gonna be naked throughout the film, like I need to watch a bad actress trying to kick-ass in cheesy remake? The source material is awful and the audience for it is minimal, this is the kind of thing Razzies were made for

the guy in charge of Nu Image's Bulgarian Studios has hinted before at her for the role. However, he he always hints at Scarlett for every lead female role in a Nu Image film.

Christina Hendricks is only 35...two years younger than Rose McGowan. And 7,000 times hotter than Rose McGowan and Megan Fox combined.
