The mighty combo of producer Jason Reitman, director Karyn Kusama, writer Diablo Cody and Transformers hotty Megan Fox (whether or not she can act) should add up to a very commercial Jennifer’s Body. This angry-at-men demonic horror flick reminds me for some reason of Attack of the 50-Foot Woman. This is one of several pics (also including The Rocker and the upcoming I Love You, Beth Cooper) developed by Fox Searchlight’s one-time sibling Fox Atomic to be released, not by Searchlight, but by Big Fox, which is sticking a trailer –not the red band trailer below– in front of Bruno this Friday.
UPDATE: Here’s the Shock till You Drop note from Kusama, Cody and Reitman (hat tip: The Playlist, which has soundtrack info):
Fox is putting a trailer of ‘Jennifer’s Body’ in front of ‘Bruno’ this Friday. Great, right? Only problem is it’s not our trailer. It’s kind of a straight horror preview and while we’re sure it’ll appeal to many of you, we wanted to make sure you guys got to see our cut… Lets call it the “filmmaker’s cut”. We think it captures the comedy and scares of the horror films we grew up on – a kind of nostalgia for when horror films were fun. Can’t wait to show you the whole film… In the meantime, here’s the red band trailer we wanted our fans to see.” – Karyn, Diablo, and Jason
