Confirmed: Megan Fox To Star In ‘Fathom’ & ‘Jonah Hex’

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 22nd, 2013 at 3:08 pm,

We told you way back in September that Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen star Megan Fox had signed-on to play the lead role of Aspen, in Fox Atomic’s adaptation of Michael Turner’s Fathom.

Well now comes word that the project is indeed moving ahead, with the newly single Fox still attached to star and co-produce the film…along with her ex-fiancé???

Yes, oddly enough Megan Fox will be sharing production duties on Fathom with Safran Productions, whose roster includes Peter Safran, Steve Bessen and Fox’s ex-amour, Brian Austin Green. Won’t that make for some awkward situations on the set…

Especially since playing Aspen will likely require Megan Fox to be repeatedly drenched with water while draped in sure-to-be-skimpy “costumes.” Fathom, after all, is the story of an orphaned girl who discovers that she is actually a super-powered member of an undersea race. That kind of role demands a lot of time in the dunk tank. And poor Brian will be forced to watch and remember the time when she used to be his…


The script is being written by Prince of Persia video game designer, Jordan Mechner. The late Micheal Turner will be an executive producer on the film along with Frank Mastromauro. Fathom is currently slated for a 2011 release date. No word yet on who will direct.

Does Megan Fox seem like a good fit for the role of Aspen? Do you think working on a film with her ex will provide us, the public, with hilarious on-set rumors and/or controversy? Do you think that somewhere, Michael Turner is happy with how Fathom is progressing?

[UPDATE: Fox is also in final talks to star alongside Josh Brolin in Jonah Hex, which is slated for a August 6, 2010 release.]

  1. to be honest i think she should quit acting and become a model, b/c her acting is just terrible, but she is easy of the eyes though.

  2. Co-produce? Fox? LOL. Yes… very easy on the eyes!

  3. I have a hard time seeing Megan Fox as the lead in any film. While I’m sure no guys will be complaining about looking at her all wet… and in skimpy clothing… in the water… ummm… I’m sorry, was I trying to make a point here? Ahem… Seem to have lost my, um, train of thought.

  4. Well her acting is acceptable in films like Transformers but I’d have to see her in a serious film to really judge her acting. But for now she is hot and if that picture is an indication of what she will be wearing I will definately see that movie. 😀

  5. @Bill Blume

    Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  6. She needs to stop using Shia Labeouf for puplicity. It’s tired and makes them both look bad. He ain’t no Brian Austin Greene so no one believes that kissy stuff between them.

  7. I think they chose the perfect girl to play the role of aspen she is just gorgeous

  8. I think she definitely has that look and body that could be Aspen. She’s not a great actress, but usually these adaption films have more action, eye-candy, and effects that distract one from acting. I really like to see this comic made into film because of the whole aquatic theme. With good budget, it should have beautiful scenery. Megan always plays vixens so I hope she stays true to Aspen’s strong, intellectual and slightly tom-boyish character.
