PREACH IT! Have hope: If Megan Fox is finding work in this economy, so can you [Poll]

Megan fox After the death of Megan Fox’s film “Jennifer’s Body,” you’d think the actress would have been punished somehow.

After all, that movie didn’t just flop. It imploded with the violence of a thousand fiery, body-snatching demons -- despite an almost painful attempt by Fox’s handlers to hype her as the next Angelina Jolie. We’ll avoid analogies of Fox being taken out to the woodshed; something tells us that doesn’t exactly count as punishment among Fox fans.

Now comes word that Fox has survived her bout with “Jennifer’s Body.” According to the website Pajiba, Fox has been offered the role of comic book heroine Red Sonja. (This would be an excellent match, considering that Fox is already a cartoon and would need minimal work in the makeup chair, but we digress.)

The report feels more like a rumor than a solid Variety-style report, but then again, we’re not talking about a Spielberg project with Meryl Streep in the lead either.
