Action babe Megan Fox will kick butt in 'Hex,' 'Fathom'


Megan Fox is on the fast track to becoming the Unthinking Man's Angelina Jolie.

According to the Hollywood Reporter she's in the final stages of a deal to star with Josh Brolin and John Malkovich in "Jonah Hex," a Warner Bros.' action flick based on a DC Comics western tale. She's also hitched to star in and develop "Fathom," Fox Atomic's comic book-based underwater action adventure.


In "Hex," Fox will play a gun-wielding babe who helps track a voodoo doctor (Malkovich) trying to raise an army of zombies.

In "Fathom," she plays an aquatic humanoid who has the ability to control water.

Interestingly, one of the "Fathom" producers is none other than Fox's ex-fiance, "Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles" star Brian Austin Green.

And the Hollywood Reporter says  Fox also will "produce in some capacity."

Hmmm. So they'll still be working together? Interesting...

Keep an eye peeled for our sexy Fox in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" this summer.

In the fall, she stars in "Jennifer's Body," a supernatural comedic thriller written by Oscar-winning "Juno" screenwriter Diablo Cody.

From the sound of it, Fox won't have time -- or the energy -- to be the next Lara Croft.
