Megan Fox To Play Red Sonja?

I am right in saying it's waaaaay after April the 1st aren't I?

So this news, if only a rampant rumour, isn't an April fools joke or something?

Well either way most movie sites are ablaze with the news that Rose McGowan is out of the running for the new Red Sonja remake and none other than Megan Fox could be set to replace her.

Supposedly Fox has been offered the part of the red headed sword wielder after McGowan was cast in the new Conan movie.

Now I'm having a problem with this news for a couple of reasons...

1) Megan recently said she was looking for more "serious" roles and turned down playing the much more lucrative and high profile role of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie. Would she then jump to Red Sonja now it's been offered? Is that any more "serious" or appetising for her?

2) Megan is just about the skinniest and most flawlessly gorgeous looking female celeb in Hollywood. She's not exactly known for physical, action orientated, kick-ass roles (and yes I also include Transformers 1 and 2 in that as she's only running etc). And come to think about it Rose McGowan wasn't any stronger looking than Fox either. In other words I can't see her as a barbarian type character. Was it only me that remembers Bridgette Nielson being able to kick numerous bloke's asses because she was 6 foot 1 and built like an oak tree? Look at the pic below and see if you think she fits the look... I personally don't.

We'll have to wait and see if this news is true... Hopefully not, although I'm not saying seeing Megan in the above Sonja garb isn't a very nice thought. ;P
