Megan Fox May Play Red Sonja in an Effort to Make Comic-Book Geeks’ Heads Explode

Megan Fox as a sword-swinging redhead, half-dressed and fully bent on revenge? Hollywood, have you been eavesdropping on our prayers again?

The Transformers beauty has reportedly been offered the part of Red Sonja in an upcoming big-screen adaptation of the comic book. Grindhouse actress Rose McGowan had previously been tapped for the role, but, due to a change of heart by NuImage/Millennium Films, she will now play “an evil half-human/half-witch.” Which seems about right.

The last movie adaptation of the Red Sonja saga, released in 1985, featured Brigitte Nielsen in the title role. Sounds like a total trade-up, but it remains to be seen whether Fox can properly grip the sword with those bizarre toe-thumbs of hers.
