Nothing could be worse than a Whedon-less remake of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you proclaimed (with a bunch of “OMG”s and “!!!”s and “WTF”s).
And maybe you’re right; maybe nothing could be worse — but I guess that all depends on how you feel about Megan Fox.
AE reader Lynne Jamneck tipped us off that Cinefools is reporting that everyone’s favorite reformed giant motorcycle-riding lesbian-turned-anti-bisexual bisexual is in talks to become the next Buffy Summers.
Whoa, hey: put down that stake! It’s just a rumor.
Of course, it’s a rumor that seems to give New Buffy producer Roy Lee tingles in his happy place. Lee told IGN.com this afternoon:
You kind of want to thank IGN.com for clearing up the speculation, but, well, they’re the ones that got this ball rolling in the first place. Last week they posted a Buffy casting couch, where they tossed out names of actresses worthy to take over the iconic role. While they had some truly inspired choices like Amanda Seyfried, Emma Watson and Michelle Trachtenberg, they reserved their highest praise for Fox:
Just to recap their appraisal: “Can Megan Fox act? Boobs, boobs, boobs, let her be Buffy!”
But does Fox think she’d make a good Buffy? Let’s just run down some of her own opinions to see.
But Megan, what if I just think you should learn a little discretion when it comes to that mouth?
In all fairness, Megan Fox is attractive, and she’s got the green-screen-acting thing down. But Buffy, really? I’m not buying it.
What do you think about Megan Fox tackling the role of Buffy Summers? And if New Buffy really is going to happen (and it looks like it is), who would you choose to lead the gang (if not Fox)?
