The Rock as Commando? Megan Fox as Buffy?

5 Comments

According to the boys over at cineFOOLS, who were careful to preface their post with a CYA “this could all be false, so whatever” tag, The Rock is attached to remake “Commando” in the Arnold Schwarzenegger role, while Megan Fox is being courted as Buffy in the reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that almost no one wants except, well, the people trying to reboot it. Now of course these are both completely unsubstantiated casting rumors from one site that no one has really heard of until now, so take it for what you will. (See there? We just CYA ourselves like they did!)

I personally don’t think Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the “Commando” reboot (if someone really was going to reboot it) would be a bad idea. I could think of worst actors in the role. Like, you know, Pauley Shore or something. And Johnson and Schwarzenegger have been doing the “passing of the torch” thing since Johnson’s “The Rundown”, when the Big S. showed up in a cameo to do just that.

Megan Fox as Buffy, meanwhile, I don’t see happening. Mostly because Fox seems incredibly dismissive of superhero characters other than the Aspen chick from the “Fathom” comic book that she’s trying to get made. How the Fathom character differs from, say, Wonder Woman or Tomb Raider, both of whom Fox has derided recently, is a mystery to me. Plus, Megan Fox has been talking recently about how she wishes all of Middle America would just die already ain’t gonna help matters.

So, what to make of these two rumors? I say take The Rock in “Commando” one as possible, and the Megan Fox as Buffy one as not gonna happen. Besides, wouldn’t Buffy need to actually know how to act and fight? As far as I can tell, Megan Fox just knows how to look pretty. Remember how “Transformers” tried to sell her as some grease monkey? Har har. Nice one, Michael Bay, nice one…

Megan Fox

    The Rock as Matrix (Gotta change that last name) from Commando would be perfect. Dwayne needs to get back to his action roots. I mean he wouldn’t even be where he is if not for wrestling, The Scorpion King and The Rundown. Go for Dwayne. Give em hell and let Sully go. As for Megan Fox as Buffy…no comment.

    Finally the Rock comes back to action movies, even if I don´t know why they have to remake “Commando”. There are surely millions of similar scripts the producers can choose from. And for the Buffy-remake, as long as they change the name from “Vampire Slayer” to “Vampire Slut”, I´m ok with that. But seriously, that annoying girl seems quite buy sucking dicks all around tinseltown, otherwise I can´t explain the hype?!

    Megan Fox as Buffy, meanwhile, I don’t see happening.Sarah Machelle Geller could act and was annoying.Your perfect for the role. And for the Buffy-remake, as long as they change the name from “Vampire Slayer” to “Vampire Slut”, I´m ok with that. But seriously, that annoying girl seems quite buy sucking dicks all around tinseltown, otherwise I can´t explain the hype?!Boy is her mouth tired.She must have swallowed plenty of cum to get this far.Maybe now,that she picked to Jason Allen Greenpann,she can blow her fans.All two of them by now,after the Wonder Woman comments and appearences in Jonah Hex.Next porn.”I've… seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain… Time to die.”
