Megan Fox in Fathom?
The film version of Michael Turner's Fathom is still in development, and Megan Fox may be starring. The film has had a fairly confusing history, previous attempts have been made to get it off the ground only to falter.
So Fathom fans, would you want Megan Fox starring?
Fathom was written by Michael Turner, who died earlier this year from cancer. I have never read the comic book, all I know is that it is about an amnesiac mermaid who is rescued by a cruise liner. From what I can tell, that's the beginning of a pretty interesting story.
James Cameron was involved in trying to get a film made a few years back, but nothing came of it. And last year Michael Turner seemed dubious that it would be made:
The ‘Fathom’ movie is now not really happening. We had some problems with some scripting … It was definitely an experience that we had with Hollywood. All the scripts were completely different from what you know of ‘Fathom.’ We’re going back and starting again…
Now Screen Rant say that Megan Fox has been cast as the lead character, in a film being made by Fox Atomic. They also brought us Hills Have Eyes 2 and 28 Weeks Later. No director or script are set yet. So it looks like they are getting a star first and worrying about the rest later.
Any Fathom fans out there. Is Megan Fox a good choice? Will Fathom lend itself well to a film version?
