Ninja Turtles Co-Creator Doesn't Think Megan Fox As April Is Radical, Bro
When it comes to voicing opinions about all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the millions of hardcore fans – and the millions who have left it behind like old pizza crust – will never be more outspoken than the half-shelled heroes’ co-creators Peter Laird or Kevin Eastman, who have rarely been shy about letting their feelings known about current projects
Megan Fox Joins Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film
The Ninja Turtles project was put on ice at Paramount and shifted back to a 2014 release date. The Fox news is the first sign that the wheels on the production are spinning, even though Bay himself will be shifting into Transformers 4 mode very quickly. But what do you think Fox will do in a new TNMT movie?
Megan Fox Flaunts Her Stuff Before Paul Rudd In This Is 40 Clip
From the looks of this clip, Fox has been cast to serve a similar purpose to hers in Friends With Kids, where her youth, flexibility, and perky breasts became a point of envy to the comedy's older female lead. In the red band featurette, Leslie Mann's age-fearing Debbie full-on feels up Fox over these anxieties. And here we see how the dudes react, which is to say predictably by gawking.
Megan Fox And Zoe Saldana Teaming Up For Action-Heist Film Swindle
The women are doing it for themselves! What's not to like about that, right? Of course, when Saldana took maters into her own hands and starred in the action vehicle Colombiana it didn't turn out that well. But while we continue knowing virtually nothing about Swindle, why not assume it will be great?
Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Adam Scott In Red-Band Friends With Kids Trailer
Kids focuses on writer-director Jennifer Westfeldt (Kissing Jessica Stein) and the always funny Adam Scott as best friends who try to pro-create without committing to a long-term relationship. If you think that sounds sitcom-ish … well, wait until you see the trailer.
Friends With Kids Poster Puts Stars On Level Playing Field
It's a far more egalitarian execution than the film's first promo poster, which debuted earlier this month. There Westfeldt and Scott, who are the leads, are relegated to tiny windows off to the sides while Megan Fox, who has a minor role in the narrative, is front and center along with Wiig and Hamm. I understand the promotional strategy behind highlighting Friends With Kids' most famous (thereby most marketable) cast members, but the image below totally distorts the focus of the film.
Josh Duhamel And Megan Fox Hunt For Billy Crystal In First Trailer For The Academy Awards
Billy Crystal has hosted the Academy Awards eight times, but, in poetic fashion, it's also been 8 years since he last did it. But it's not only from the Oscar stage that he's disappeared. With the exception of his uncredited role in 2010's Tooth Fairy, Crystal hasn't been in a live-action movie since 2002's Analyze That. For that reason, it's totally understandable why William Fichtner had to send Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox to Mongolia to hunt him down.
Megan Fox Talks Babies, Tattoos And Learning From Comedians In Friends With Kids
Megan Fox became famous as the beautiful girl who teamed up with Shia LaBeouf to fight the robots from outer space in the first two Transformers movies, but she's stuck around in the public eye partly because she's a great interview, willing to talk about most anything in a frank and funny way. Now, here at the Toronto Film Festival she's getting a chance to show off that sense of humor onscreen in Friends With Kids
Megan Fox Reveals That Jason Segel Has A Role In This Is Forty
Because the next Judd Apatow film, currently titled This Is Forty, is a spin-off from the 2007 hit Knocked Up, there's a solid chance that the movie will contain cameos by characters from the first movie. While it's hard to imagine that Katherine Heigl will show up (she famously called Knocked Up "a little sexist), the door is open for other Apatow regulars, such as Seth Rogen, Martin Starr, and Jay Baruchel, to make an appearance.
Shia LaBeouf Asked Michael Bay For A Bookish Megan Fox Replacement
When it came down to casting Fox’s replacement, he was hoping Bay would have gone in the opposite direction and hired someone “more bookish” for the role of his Transformers love interest. Shia, have you ever seen a Michael Bay movie?
Megan Fox And John C. Reilly Have Parts In Larry Charles' The Dictator
With neither action (Jonah Hex) nor drama (Passion Play) nor horror (Jennifer's Body) panning out as Megan Fox hoped in her post-Transformers career, it seems as though she now wants to be a comedian. Already on her in-development list is Jennifer Westfeldt's Friends With Kids and Judd Apatow's This is Forty, but now she's adding another laugher to her resume.
Megan Fox Fired From Transformers Because Steven Spielberg Fears Hitler?
I guess we’re supposed to think that Spielberg is Jewish and thus really touchy about Hitler stuff, but he’s also an adult and I’d hope that would mean he’s able to, you know, apply logic to a situation. What Fox originally said was that Michael Bay, “…wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for.”
Megan Fox Wants To Play Carrie
The proposed remake of Carrie has more than enough things working against it, but towards the top of that list is finding another actress to play the lead role. Sissy Spacek's performance in Brian De Palma's 1976 film is truly iconic and even earned the actress her first Oscar nomination. Needless to say she's left some gigantic shoes to fill, but apparently Megan Fox - of all people - wants to give it a go.
See The First Trailer For Mickey Rourke And Megan Fox's Bizarre Romance Passion Play
If it doesn't make any sense, I promise that's not because it's a bad trailer, but the movie is exactly as bizarre as it seems. And if you're drawn in by the inexplicably strong cast-- Mickey Rourke, Bill Murray and Rhys Ifans surrounding the surprisingly intriguing Megan Fox-- well, I'm not going to stop you from seeing it
Megan Fox's Passion Play To Be Released May 6, Gets New Poster
While covering the Toronto Film Festival last year, own our Katey Rich had the opportunity to see a film titled Passion Play, starring Mickey Rourke, Megan Fox and Bill Murray. To put it mildly, the whole thing sounds like a masterpiece of awful. The movie was so incredibly bad, in fact, that Katey actually decided not to write a standard review, and instead wrote up a list of 15 things you need to know about it
