Megan Fox is no stranger to comic book rumors, with reported connections ranging from Catwoman to Red Sonja. One comic book film that she is attached to — aside from the forthcoming “Jonah Hex,” of course — is “Fathom,” based on the Aspen Comics series created by the late Michael Turner.
Speaking with MTV News, Fox confirmed that “Fathom” is still in the works and will eventually get made — even if that means someone else has to take on the lead role of Aspen Matthews.
“That’s going to happen even if I have to step away from it and give it to someone else,” she told MTV. “That movie will happen, just because I love it and it needs to happen.”
Of course, none of that’s to say that Fox has left the production — and if she did, you can be sure that she wouldn’t surrender the role to “someone who doesn’t give a s— about it.” But things seem to be moving along just fine at the moment, as the actress revealed that “Fathom” is currently in the scripting stage.
“They’re still working on the script and getting that together,” she said. “That’s in the early fetal pre-production stages.”
Beyond “Fathom,” Fox addressed the recent rumors of her involvement with “Red Sonja,” the delayed (and possibly scrapped) comic book adaptation from producer Robert Rodriguez and actress Rose McGowan.
“Is that coming back around? There were talks of it a while ago, but as far as I knew, someone else was already doing it,” she said, speaking of the Rodriguez/McGowan version. “I didn’t realize that was open again.”
