This news will make a handsome giftset with the Ratner-directing-Youngblood revelation in the category of Awful Comics Being Brought to Life By Hollywood Talent So Blindingly Appropriate that Fans and Haters Alike Cannot Help But Resoundingly Approve. Megan Fox starring as the hot, raven-haired, oft-naked heroine of the comic book Fathom? That is not disagreeable, except for the part about a Fathom movie:
Megan Fox is ditching the robots and taking her career to Western and underwater frontiers.
Fox is in final negotiations to star opposite Josh Brolin and John Malkovich in "Jonah Hex," Warner Bros.' action Western based on the DC Comics character. She also is attached to star and develop "Fathom," Fox Atomic's comic book-based underwater adventure.
In "Hex," being directed by Jimmy Hayward, Fox will play Leila, a gun-wielding beauty and love interest of Hex (Brolin), a scarred bounty hunter tracking a voodoo practitioner (Malkovich) who wants to raise an army of undead to liberate the South.
"Fathom," a comic created by recently deceased artist Michael Turner, follows a young woman named Aspen who learns she is a member of a race of aquatic humanoids who possess the ability to control water.
As for the Megan Fox-in-Jonah Hex news... I guess? I still don't know why Jonah Hex is being produced as a film. This is going to be the Pets.com of comic adaptations--the one that finally bursts the already thinly-stretched skin of the bubble. Sell your Comic Book Movie stock (CBM) now.
