Megan Fox Wants to Make Jennifer’s Body 2 or a Sequel TV Show.
Megan Fox recently expressed interest in reviving Jennifer’s Body as a sequel film or TV series. The 2009 film evolved into a cult classic even with its poor performance at the box office. Previous reports stated that Diablo Cody and Fox blamed the negative reception of the film on poor marketing.
Jennifer’s Body centers around two frenemy high school teenagers: an unapologetic heartthrob named Jennifer, and an insecure bookworm named Anita, played by Amanda Seyfried. After a disturbing encounter with a local indie rock band and its diabolical front-man, played by Adam Brody, Jennifer develops a literal thirst for the blood of her male peers.
In a recent interview with Washington Post, Fox opened up about a number of personal topics, including her desire to continue Jennifer’s Body‘s storyline in a sequel movie or TV show.
In speaking with the Washington Post, Fox said:
“I don’t think it’s a hard movie to make a sequel to,” she said. “I mean, they should make it into a TV series. That would be cool.”
Fox also spoke about her feelings towards the film saying:
“‘Jennifer’s Body’ is iconic, and I love that movie,” Fox said. “I didn’t want to do that movie an injustice by doing something that was similar but not as good.”
This was a film that definitely deserved more recognition upon it’s release, but hey, it happens. In the 12 years since it’s release, it definitely has reached a new level of fandom and I for one would love to see more of it.
