Megan Fox Replacing Rose McGowan as Red Sonja?


Red Sonja Movie PosterSheesh, and after they cooked up all those photoshop teaser posters of Rose McGowan as Red Sonja and everything? This is kind of odd, especially in light of McGowan’s recent casting in the new “Conan” movie. Conan, of course, takes place in the same universe as Red Sonja, so you would think — well, I don’t know what you would think, but it’s ironic that after all the campaigning McGowan has been doing to get a “Red Sonja” movie off the ground, she could get this close (the same fictional universe and everything) and still end up losing the movie?

Well that’s the word from Pajiba, whose source tells them that McGowan is out as Red Sonja, and that Millennium Films has scrapped the film they’ve been development with an eye towards a whole new approach, which means no script, new writer, and new director. And oh yeah, new star, too. The biggest change, of course, is that Millennium has made an offer to Megan Fox to replace McGowan in the role.

Megan Fox as Red Sonja. What do you think?

    It was good while it lasted.

    Nope…Megan Fox is uber hot and all but the personification of Red Sonja (visually) is more Rose than Megan. Sounds like the choice was made with the wrong 'heads' this time. I'll pass on this one.

    NO NO NO!!!! I didn't think Rose was actually that great a choice cause she's so tiny. Sonja should be closer to Wonder Woman in stature. Tall, athletic and powerful yet sexy. Megan Fox can't act so I relaly don't think she'd be such a great choice. Dunno who would be good but not her. Looks great though and I'd watch her walk around in a chainmail bikini LOL.
