Megan Fox Won't Play Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Posted 06.11.09 by reelz
Latest rumors surrounding the previously announced Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie have attached Transformers star Megan Fox as title heroine Buffy Summers.
The 23-year-old Tennessee native has denied any links to vampires and slayers, with Buffy producer Roy Lee telling IGN:
"The rumors of Megan Fox being involved with Buffy are just rumors. As with any film project with a female lead under the age of 30, Megan is the actress that most studios want so it is no surprise her name is mentioned. While I think she would be great for our project, we are still in the early stages of developing the script."
The proposed movie will have no ties to either the 1992 movie or the TV show, which ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003. Sunnydale genius Joss Whedon won't be involved, and neither will fan-favorite Sarah Michelle Gellar. Original Buffy rights holders Fran Rubel Kuzui and Kaz Kuzui are clearly trying to cash in on the sudden popularity surge in all things fanged and, let's face it, it doesn't sound very good. A Buffy movie without Whedon or Gellar? What is the world coming to?
