Because its probably been at least a few hours since we had something here about Megan Fox and we know you’re starting to get a bit of withdrawl, we’re going to help you out. This time around, via our pals at MTV Splashpage, we’ve got info about her role in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Jonah Hex.
Previously, we featured pics of the lovely Ms. Fox on the set of the film, but her actual character was still a bit of a mystery. Now, that mystery appears solved — by Fox herself in the interview. According to the actress:
“That movie is gonna be amazing. It’s a post-civil war, apocalyptic type Western. The director Jimmy [Hayward] is a lunatic, and he might be a genius. From some of the things I’ve seen him shoot, it’s a badass movie.” And what about her character?
“They’ve changed her name a couple of times — it’s Leila now,” Fox explained in the article. “She is a prostitute. She’s a good ol’ working girl, and she’s a love-interest to Jonah… of sorts. I mean, it’s by no means a classic type of relationship.”
“All the women in the movie are prostitutes,” she continued. “[I’m] sort of a tough, no-nonsense prostitute. Like, she’ll shoot you in the head if she has to. And she does!”
Will she actually be shooting people or was that just a figure of speech? According to Fox, she will definitely be handling some firearms in the movie and will get to shoot at least one person. “Not in the head,” she grinned. “[But I get to shoot someone] somewhere.”
Jonah Hex, which co-stars Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Will Arnett, hits theaters everywhere August 6, 2010.
