This is Megan Fox as hatchet-wielding prostitute Leila in Warner Bros. upcoming sci-fi western mash-up Jonah Hex.
Jonah Hex is directed by Jimmy Hayward and costars John Malkovich (Transformers 3), Will Arnett (Monsters Vs. Aliens), Michael Shannon (Bug), David Jensen (The Mist), Brandi Coleman (Battle: Los Angeles), Aidan Quinn (The Eclipse), and Josh Brolin (Planet Terror) as Hex.

Jonah Hex arrives in theaters on June 18.
Timothy Olyphant (The Crazies) has replaced Sharlto Copley (District 9) in DreamWorks soon-to-start-shooting sci-fi actioner I Am Number Four. “Scheduling conflicts” were cited as the reason for Copley’s departure (A-Team promotional obligations to be exact).
This is terrible news because I now have to go back and rewrite all my I Am Number Four posts where I mention Copley as starring in the film. There are at least three posts! This is going to really cut into my daily afternoon vodka-induced nap time.
Other than that, I don’t really care what actors they cast just as long as slutty-looking Teresa Palmer stays in place.
I Am Number Four is an adaptation of the upcoming HarperCollins young-adult novel written by James Frey (”A Million Little Pieces”) and Jobie Hughes. The story revolves around John Smith (Alex Pettyfer), an alien living incognito as a human high school student in Paradise, Ohio up until he’s discovered by the extraterrestrial enemies that destroyed his home planet.
D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) directs. Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg produce.
Is “LOST” star Evangeline Lilly really living parallel lives? The 30-year-old stunner announced earlier this year that she planned to quit acting when her show came to an end, but now has signed on to star in DreamWork’s upcoming sci-fi actioner Real Steel.
Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as a former boxer-turned-fight-promoter who reunites with his estranged 11-year-old son to build a robot to compete in a robot-boxing tournament. The film is set in the future where human boxing matches are no longer legal and have been replaced by combating machines.
Lilly has been cast as Jackman’s friend with boobs (it beats doing phone sex ads)
Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) is attached as director. The film swings into theaters on Nov. 18, 2011.
Action heroes Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren are set to star in Foresight Unlimited’s Universal Soldier IV, their third film together in the unstoppable cyborg-action series first introduced by Roland Emmerich in 1992.
The film will once again pit Van Damme’s reanimated war hero Pvt. Luc DeVeraux against Lundgren’s bio-mechanical heavy Sgt. Andrew Scott. The duo last faced-off in the 2010 straight-to-DVD hit Universal Soldier: Regeneration.
Production on Universal Soldier 4 will begin on May 9 with Regeneration director John Hyams at the helm. The straight-to-DVD sequel will be presented in 3-D.
