According to IESB ‘Fathom' is still a go at 20th Century Fox. It has been in development hell for some time now. Then I thought the project was dropped due to the death of creator Michael Turner earlier this year. But it seems Fox has moved the project to Fox Atomic which is the genre arm of the studio. They also say:
The studio is currently out to several writers to bring aboard to revamp the script as a vehicle for Megan Fox, who, our source says, has officially signed onto the project this week. Fox is set to play the lead character of Aspen.
They defiantly got an actress that looks the part! Megan Fox will play the lead character Aspen Matthews. I am not sure about her acting abilities. They are all ready very wooden. But in a comic book film like Fathom are people going to really care about her acting abilities? This movie is just gong to be full of eye candy. Sometimes that's all you need to get the male population into the theaters.
Aspen Matthews continues to search for clues from her past in order to balance the turmoil between the two world's she's inhabited. Stepping off the Paradise cruise ship in 1984, Aspen was adopted by the naval officer Captain Matthews and subsequently raised under his supervision. She flirted with Olympic gold in Seoul in 1988 before controversy washed away his swimming career. Instead focusing on earning multiple degrees in Marine Biology, Aspen became an expert in her field and earned her a position on the DMD, or Deep Marine Discovery. It was at the DMD where Aspen's tumultuous journey with the race of The Blue began. After defeating the renegade leader Killian and ending the Blue Sun incident, Aspen was captured by the mysterious race known as The Black.
So what are your thoughts? Is Megan Fox the girl for the job?
