Megan Fox is going to be Robert Rodriguez’s next muse! The will star in his remake of the 1985 film Red Sonja, according to the London Sun. Red Sonja was a scantily-clad, sword-wielding character in the comic book series Conan The Barbarian — which is also being made into a separate, unrelated movie.
Rodriguez has been planning to remake the 1985 original, starring Brigitte Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger, for awhile — and he even wanted to cast his ex-fianceé, Rose McGowan, in the part. But Rob and Rose are over, and she actually took a role in the new Conan The Barbarian remake, so Megan is the next sultry, raven-haired beauty in line!
The director says that financial struggles on the production side is causing delays. “If I kept the project myself, we could’ve just made it,” Robert confesses. “But it belonged to another company that had financing problems.”
Hopefully the problems are behind them, because we’d really love to see Megan try her hand at an action role. After all, it worked for Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider! —Corynne Steindler
