Megan Fox is looking forward to a Jennifer’s Body clone.
The star of the 2009 horror/comedy recently expressed an interest in reprising her role of Jennifer Check in either a film sequel or a TV series, as reported by screenrant.com.
Fox–who has two Scream Awards for her genre roles to her credit–currently stars as Emma in the recently released Till Death from Screen Media Films. But her heart seems to still be with Jennifer.
The actor–who enjoyed a breakout role as Mikaela Banes in 2007’s Transformers–said in a recent interview that she plans to stress her film career at this stage of her life, but she isn’t willing to play any part. She said she has read a lot of scripts lately, but none can match the appeal of Jennifer’s Body.
Discussing the merits of that film, Fox said, “I don’t think it’s a hard movie to make a sequel to.” She added, “They should make it into a TV series. That would be cool.” With more emphasis being placed on female-led horror films these days, the idea seems to fall into the “right place, right time” category.
The original R-rated Jennifer’s Body–directed by Karyn Kusama from a screenplay by Diablo Cody–stars Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Simmons and Adam Brody. The story deals with a demonically possessed high school girl (Fox) who develops a thirst for the blood of her male classmates, and the efforts of her best friend (Seyfried) to stop her.
The film received mixed reviews from critics–with Fox and her co-stars being the bright spots–and it performed poorly at the box office, earning just $31.6 million on a $16-million budget. Despite all that, the movie achieved a kind of cult status over the years and is considered to be an influential feminist horror film.
