Megan Fox in Apatow’s Spin-Off

Following a trifecta of movie bombs (Jennifer’s Body, Jonah Hex and Passion Play) Megan Fox is looking to re-energize her acting career. The Hollywood Reporter says that Fox is in negotiations to join Judd Apatow’s currently untitled Knocked Up spinoff starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann. Rudd and Mann will reprise their roles of Pete and Debbie, with the plot following the couple’s relationship five years following the 2006 Seth Rogen-Katherine Heigl comedy.

Fox has had a tough time converting her Transformers success into a thriving acting career, although her script choices might have something to do with that. Jonah Hex is her biggest bomb so far, returning only $10.9 million worldwide on a $47 million budget, while Jennifer’s Body managed to break even domestically. Passion Play co-starring Mickey Rourke ended up going straight to DVD.
 
Apatow has said that he would also like to bring back more cast members from previous films but that will depend on the actor’s schedules. The spinoff is set to start filming this summer for a June 1, 2012 release. So do you think Fox would be a good fit in Team Apatow and what other former collaborators would you like to see? Jonah Hill? Christopher '"McLovin" Mintz-Plasse? Steve Carell? Jason Segel?
