According to The Hollywood Reporter, Megan Fox (“Transformers”) is in final negotiations to join the film “Jonah Hex,” based on the DC Comics Western hero. She’s also attached to star in “Fathom,” based on Michael Turner’s aquatic hero.

“Jonah Hex” is set to begin filming in April, directed by Jimmy Hayward.  Fox will play Leila, a “gun-wielding beauty,” according to THR, and love interest to Josh Brolin’s Jonah Hex.

“Fathom” is being written by Jordan Mechner, the creator of video game “Prince of Persia.” “Fathom” was created by artist Michael Turner, who died in 2008 at age 37.   According to THR, Fox had been a fan of “Fathom” since it debuted in 1998.

This is probably the best excuse I’ll have this week to run a lot of Megan Fox photos.   I met Fox at the “Transformers” junket in 2007, and it seemed likely then that she would become a bigger star.
