Megan Fox In Talks For Judd Apatow's 'Knocked Up' Spinoff

After getting bounced from the ‘Transformers‘ series and bombing in a trifecta of films — “Jennifer’s Body,” “Jonah Hex” and “Passion Play” — Megan Fox is currently undergoing a career reinvention. She recently wrapped the indie film “Friends With Kids” and now she’s adding a high-profile comedy gig to her plate in a move that will certainly get people talking.

THR reports that Megan Fox is in negotiations to join Judd Apatow‘s currently untitled “Knocked Up” spinoff. The film will star Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd, who are reprising their roles Debbie and Pete, in a film that will follow their relationship five years since the first film. Apatow recently revealed that he’s hoping to bring back more members of the cast from the previous film but it will depend if schedules will allow it.

This is the first major bit of casting to be revealed for the film with more surely on the way. The project will go in front of cameras this summer and is set for a June 1, 2012 release.

I think yall should have more faith. I mean if you are fans of the movie and the director how could you dismiss it so easily? I think it will be good. I love Megan Fox. She does have potential.


Why, Judd? Why would get this talentless hack to be in one of your movies?! I can’t watch it in the theatre now! Cameo, PLEASE!!!!

I don’t know, I think Apatow is a smart writer/director and sees potential with her in a comedic role. And something tells me she could be funny or at least provide some funny situational comedy. It could work


Really?! She can’t act, doesn’t care to try. She’s horrible on a couple different levels. I was hoping she was on her way out…


I just lost respect for apatow for even considering her


Please, God no. Only if it’s a cameo.
