Is Red Sonja Going To Be A Fox?

Possible big casting shake up in the ever-derailed movie.
Rose McGowan is out for the lead role in Red Sonja. This according to website Pajiba. The movie has had quite a few problems getting made these last few years: injuries, financing and script issues just to name a few. So, who is in for the lead female warrior role? None other than Megan Fox











Pajiba's site reports:

"...according to our insider source, The Hollywood Cog. The broader truth, it seems, is that the previous incarnation of the Red Sonja remake has been scrapped, as some have already speculated. Rose McGowan is off. In fact, it seems that director, Douglas Aarniokoski, is also off the project, and Millennium Films is searching for another writer, someone to take another pass at David N. White’s script. But the project is far from dead.

The potentially bigger news, here, however, is that not only is Rose McGowan out, but right now, there’s an offer out to another actress to take the role. That actress? Megan Fox."


Now Pajiba is not always the most accurate source for news (but then, who is). The one thing that gave me pause on this though is that Rose McGowan has been cast in Conan as a completely different character. There were talks that Red Sonja would appear as a crossover. The two production companies have ties and are suppose to shoot at the same studio. Obviously Red Sonja is nowhere close to that at this point.

This is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD NEWS!!!!! I'm not a fan of Fox, but i don't hate her as much as Rose McGaggin!!!

Fox is saying this is untrue and she is not cast.

I don't think we'll see Red Sonja anytime soon!

Well IMO, unless they find the perfect needle in the hay stack, i don't wanna see Red Sonja at all. Leave it dead. We'll see how the new Conan turns out first, then think of what can be done with Red Sonja. With the way they're goin in casting terms, i wouldn't be surprised if they cast freakin Milla Jovovich. That would NOT be a good choice, if you were wondering. LOL

Agreed Shaman. Unless they find the right athletic type of woman, there is no point in making this. The character has to be believable as a warrior and someone who can take on men convincingly. That's why Lucy Lawless made Xena work.

Maybe Rhona Mitra-although I can't see her as a red head.

Dogs- Rhona is definitely an example to keep in mind when thinking of the physicality of the character. She doesn't fit the role at all as you said but would be oceans better than Fox or McGaggin. After Alias and Elektra, i know some might want to see Garner as Sonja but not me. I'm leaning towards someone that would have a powerful presence as well. Someone like Lena Headey but a bit younger, beefier and more beautifull. Can't think of anyone right now. There aren't that many "powerful" women in Hollywood right now. An unknown might be best.
