Megan Fox is the New ‘Buffy’?

megan-fox-closeFirst, we brought you news of a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie in the works with original producer and director Kaz Kazui and Fran Rubel Kazui but without the participation of Joss Whedon. Now comes word, and keep in mind this info sits deep in the heart of rumor country, that Megan Fox is being considered for the role of Buffy in the new film.

Don’t misunderstand, we like Megan Fox here at The Flickcast. In fact, we may have mentioned her once or twice during a podcast or on the site. Still, with her recent opinions concerning her role as Wonder Woman, another strong female warrior, we’re not sure if she would even be interested in playing Buffy — a role made famous by Sarah Michelle Gellar.

That said, the possibility is an interesting one. Obviously, she has many of the physical attibutes necessary for the role, but we’ve never seen her do much fighting or martial arts. However, those things can be tought — at least well enough to make them look plausable on screen. So, the question really comes down to, as it often does, her acting ability. As in, can she convincingly pull off the role? Maybe.

But until we know for sure if this is something more than just a rumor, there’s really no point in speculating further. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one as it develops.
