With the Transformers franchise behind her and Jonah Hex falling in line as yet another headlined bomb, Megan Fox is looking to move on to greener pastures. And by greener, I’m of course referring to pastures full of lesbian sex and violence. She wants to play the role of Sarah Rainmaker in Gen 13, a movie that isn’t even remotely in development. Go figure.
“I don’t want people to protest this,” Fox explained to Fox News (no relation). “But I would like to be (Sarah) Rainmaker in Gen 13 if they ever made that into a movie.”
A Wildstorm series created in 1994 by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi, “Gen 13” tells the tale of a superhero team consisting of youthful heroes. Rainmaker is an Apache-born hero with the ability to manipulate the weather. The character’s sexual orientation has been the subject of some debate, with early stories depicting Rainmaker as a lesbian while later issues revealed her as bisexual.
Aside from the fact that Megan Fox is yet to prove herself to be anything resembling a decent actress, there are several problems. If my research is correct, the characters of “Gen 13” are on the younger side of the young woman spectrum. We’re talking late teen years, for the most part. Megan Fox didn’t play high school age very well in Jennifer’s Body, and there are no signs that she’s acting any younger in the future. On top of that, there’s the fact that Rainmaker is a Native American character. A fact that Fox was quick to put to rest in her own eloquent way: “She’s a Native American and I have a little bit of that blood in me. It would be a bit of a stretch – but if Jake Gyllenhaal can be the Prince of Persia, I think that I can do that.”
Sorry Ms. Fox. I was with you when you said you wanted to lead a Hack/Slash movie, but I just can’t get on board with something like this. If they ever make a film out of the very cool “Gen 13” series, they should do it with someone else’s name on the poster.
