Megan Fox To Star in Diablo Cody's Jennifer's Body
I swear screenwriter Diablo Cody is on a track record for the most quirky and eclectic films ever! Beyond that, I have a feeling she is really going to bring about a new revolution in Hollywood with her writing. She's the same one who wrote the upcoming hit film Juno and was mentioned as part of the Burlesque musical. Her latest is a comedic supernatural thriller titled Jennifer's Body with Transformers hottie Megan Fox in negotiations to star.
The film is described as similar in tone to Heathers and Beetlejuice, and follows a cheerleader with a perfect life who becomes the girl from hell when she gets possessed and begins killing boys in a small town. Her best friend must then find a way to stop her. Wait, did I just hear that right? Megan Fox as a cheerleader who begins killing boys?
Fox Atomic pre-emptively picked up the spec script last week from Diablo Cody. Although I have absolutely no confidence in Fox Atomic, who has put out nothing but pure crap since their inception last year, I do have a lot of faith in Diablo Cody. Maybe this is the first good film they're working on, as long as Diablo's script doesn't get butchered in the production process. Fox is hoping to get the project written and production started before the possible writers' strike.
Here's a little taste of Megan Fox:
