UPDATED: Megan Fox as Red Sonja? Metal bikini ahoy!

Posted by LiveFor on April 5, 2010

It looks as if the Robert Rodriguez Red Sonja movie starring Rose McGowan is no more. He had been saying that they were going to wait and see how the new Conan movie was going to do. That may not be totally true.

According to Pajiba, the current incarnation of the Sonja has been scrapped.

Red Sonja was a comic book character created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. She was part of the Conan the Barbarian universe and was a kick ass warrior who wore some skimpy chainmail armour. Brigitte Neilsin played her in a film version many moons ago.

However, the project is not dead as Millenium Films are after someone to rewrite the script by David N White and rumour has it that an offer has been made to a Megan Fox.

Before I go any further here is a pic of Red Sonja, so it is possible Fox would be wearing something similar.

You still with me?

Now we all know Fox hasn’t really done anything to show her acting chops so we don’t actually know what she is capable of. She can run, pout and pose in Transformers and Jennifer’s Body just failed and slunk away before anyone noticed. She is starring in the comic adaption of Jonah Hex, but no word on her performance yet.

Could this be the role that makes her? Is the rumour even true?

Do you think Fox is the right choice for Red Sonja? Will she suit the flaming red hair (anyone want to do a photoshop thingy that I can post)? Who would be a better choice for the role and who should direct it?

UPDATE: Thanks to Pat for knocking this one together using one of the Rose McGowan teaser posters from a while back (check out both of them here). Anybody got any more?
