Up until last month, it seemed Grindhouse hottie Rose McGowan was slated to play the title character in the Robert Rodriguez-produced Red Sonja. However, upon being cast as a different character in Nu Image's Conan remake, it'd be hard to place McGowan as Sonja.
But now it's being reported that Transformers wild child Megan Fox is being tapped for the role, so says Pajiba. Fox, whose recent press spats with director Michael Bay have become something of legend, has been offered the role of the mythical flame-haired, sword-wielding comic-book vixen warrior:
In her return we find Red Sonja, a young girl risen from the ashes of tragedy to become the most feared woman warrior of all time. The mythical red-head blindly seeks vengeance on those who destroyed her family. In her path of destruction she discovers a larger purpose for her unearthly powers: to save all Hyrkania from the villainous Kulan Gath.
Will Megan pick up the sword and save Hyrkania? Or will she just call the producers "Hitler" and walk? Is this all more than just a rumor? Only time will tell.
