Scoop This: Megan Fox Is a Drug Smuggler, 'Father Knows Best' to Hit the Big Screen and from 'Terminator' to 'Nightmare on Elm Street'

Fear not Megan Fox fanatics, the girl did not attempt to smuggle drugs into the country or into her boyfriend's basement. She's still cool, still out of prison and I'm we’re still in love with her -- but The Hollywood Reporter’s Risky Biz blog says Fox is now considering a new role in which she’ll play an American vacationing in Mexico who must smuggle heroin back into the United States in order to save her kidnapped husband.


Fox, who’s practically attached to every film these days, also has movies like Jonah Hex and Fathom in the works – and so we can’t see her jumping across the border anytime soon. Still, it appears as if this up-and-coming sex symbol is itching to take on some smaller, more personal fare, and I know I’m not the only one interested in seeing how it all works out for her.

Do you want to see Megan Fox in big blockbusters like Transformers or in much smaller indie films?

'Father Knows Best' Becomes Latest TV Remake to Hit the Big Screen

Hollywood still hasn’t learned that old TV shows don’t necessarily provide the best material for a modern-day remake, and next up to bat for New Regency and 20th Century Fox is a big-screen adaptation of the classic ‘50s television show "Father Knows Best." This new, contemporary version (written by Chad and Dara Creasey) will follow a modern-day father whose more traditional father comes to live with the family – leading both men to clash over the right and wrong ways to raise a family.

Can Father Knows Best get right what films like Inspector Gadget, Bewitched, Lost in Space, The Mod Squad and Josie and the Pussycats got wrong? Seems like they want to go with a Meet the Parents vibe here, which may work depending on the cast. What do you think – does father really know best?

John Connor to Square Off Against Freddy Kreuger

With production beginning anytime now, the new Nightmare on Elm Street remake is starting to capture its cast of poor, unsuspecting teenagers. We already know that Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, Little Children) is set to play the new Freddy Krueger (who I’ve heard is a lot more terrifying – and less jokey – than the previous version), and Kyle Gallner will take on the role originally occupied by Johnny Depp in the first film.

Now, Shock Till You Drop has learned that Thomas Dekker (John Connor on "The Sarah Connor Chronicles") is in final negotiations to play Jesse, a jock on the swim team, in the horror update due out in theaters next April 16. Hmm, jock on the swim team? Doesn’t seem like the best character description for a guy in a horror movie, huh? Here’s hoping he’s able to keep that head above water…

Still waiting for some hot young females to join some of these guys, but so far the cast definitely shows promise. Heck, I’m just dying (no pun intended) to see what Haley does with Krueger. You?
