Megan Fox Wants in on a Gen 13 Movie?

She really wants to play Rainmaker.

 If all these comic roles play out, Fox could be the female equivalent of Ryan Reynolds.

Megan Fox might be dying to play Fathom one day, but Aspen Matthews isn’t the only comics character she’s got her eye on. Fox News, of all places, got a statement out of her while she was on the red carpet for JONAH HEX’s premiere last week where she expressed interest in portraying GEN 13’s Rainmaker. This certainly runs in line with what she’s been saying to MTV for a while about being a big fan of the Wildstorm series.

So spoke Ms. Fox…

“I don’t want people to protest this, but I would like to be Rainmaker in GEN 13 if they ever made that into a movie. She’s a Native American and I have a little bit of that blood in me. It would be a bit of a stretch – but if Jake Gyllenhaal can be the Prince of Persia, I think that I can do that.”

I’m not sure if there’s ever been a GEN 13 movie in development at any point, so I figure this is more of an idle wish on her part than a hint of anything substantial going on. Believe it or not, though, there actually was a GEN 13 animated feature produced in ’99 that featured Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Flea as Grunge and Mark “ The Joker” Hamill as Threshold. It was completed right before Wildstorm was acquired by DC and ended up going unreleased in America (although it had a small video release in Europe and Australia.) Incidentally, the toon’s line-up didn’t include Rainmaker. == TEASER ==

As far as live action movies go, I don’t know if GEN13 has as much of a hook for mainstream audiences as other Wildstorm titles like WILDCATS, STORMWATCH or THE AUTHORITY have. The central premise is that these kids are the 13 generation of government-engineered superfolk, but I figure that's ground that’s going to seem already-tread by the X-MEN movies (or soon-to-be-tread by the RUNAWAYS flick) in movie-goers' eyes. What seems to be getting the most attention out of this from Fox News is the fact that Rainmaker’s openly bisexual.

Anyway, I’m sure we’ve got some GEN 13 fans here in the community. If we gave you the power, how would you make a movie about them? Would you cast Fox as Rainmaker?

@Cherry Bomb: The only problem is the acting then. Seth Rogen wasn't muscular but he's playing Green Hornet anyway.

" Gen 13 is one of my favorite teams... if Megan Fox plays Rainmaker, I'm scared that she'll ruin any kind of shot that the team has to have a future in comics.  Whoever casts this movie if it ever gets to that point, remember the 80's when it comes to Fox.  "Just say no." 
 
As far as the cast, here's my opinion:  

Laura Prepon as Fairchild


Jack Black as Grunge

Ashley Green as Freefall

Chris Pine as Burnout




Michael Keaton as John Lynch

Michelle Rodriguez as Rainmaker
"
I agree.

@aZuLPiNoY:  I like the actors you've chosen, but they are all ..... well, old.  Aren't the Gen13 team supposed to be in their late teens? not 30 - 40.
 
 @TheMess1428:  Seth has certainly toned up though! - he has a nice body now. [: but still, the Green Hornets main feature isn't his body, Fairchilds is, lol.

Laura Prepon would be perfect regardless of the rest of the cast. And any teen redhead could train to make their body like that. Even you. But Laura Prepon would be perfect.

@TheMess1428: I love Laura Prepon, I think she's fantastic, but she's like, 30? Hopefully she can still pass as a teen. How about Lily Cole? she's like, nearly 6 foot tall and could do both: geeky Caitlin and battle Caitlin.

Even though I'd be happy with Megan as Rainmaker, I'd much prefer Camilla Belle in the role. She's not Native American, but she just has the native look to her, the darkened skin, long, dark hair and the defined eyebrows. all attributes that Rainmaker has.

@Cherry Bomb: Wow. Good choices. Maybe I should hire you as Casting Director for my movies.

@TheMess1428:  haha, wow, i'd love too! you make movies? lol

@Cherry Bomb: Yeah I am a writer. I wrote a script for my friend who is an upcoming director. I'm writing some original movies too. But you should really read my blog about the biggest idea I ever had. I also write comics too.

NO.
 
Rain at least needs to be portrayed by someone who IS Native-American. C'mon, there's gotta be some in Hollywood. But either way, they're not making this movie so there's nothing to worry about.
 
 
 
 
Right?
