It's Megan Fox's world and we are just living in it. That Mugler dress, the street style, the Pride nails – Fox is making 2021 her year. Anything this woman wants, we will 100% allow. So, when she happened to mention during a recent interview that she was totally down to star in a Jennifer's Body sequel, there is absolutely no way that we're going to stop her.
For the uninitiated (aka, most people under the age of 25); the 2009 dark comedy-slasher film was the God tier of adolescent horror films. Sure, the full extent of the films' greatness wasn't entirely recognised at the time. But now, more than a decade on, we finally know better.
Jennifer's Body sees Fox star as an ascendant demon-possessed cheerleader, alongside a young Amanda Seyfried as her put-upon best friend, who has to intervene before she slaughters the entire male population of her small town. A storyline which still feels entirely justified in 2021...
It seems to be something that Fox also agrees with, and after Olivia Rodrigo's very Jennifer's Body-inspired Good 4 U music video, it seems like now would be the right time for a sequel.
Refresh yourself on the iconic film below.
During an interview with the Washington Post, Fox spoke candidly about how the oversexualisation of the film and her character may have inhibited the real impact Jennifer's Body could have had.
“This movie is art, but when it came out, nobody was saying that,'“ she said. “Critically, everybody shit on it.”
“I think there has been a pervasive perception of me as a shallow succubus, if that makes any sense, for at least the first decade of my career,” she continued.
Thankfully, for those of us who want to see Jennifer's Body get the justice it deserves, we might finally get our moment. Fox shared that she isn't totally opposed to signing up for another round, telling the publiction; “I don’t think it’s a hard movie to make a sequel to... I mean, they should make it into a TV series. That would be cool.”
It doesn't matter to us which way you dice it, we will be first in line to watch any Jennifer's Body sequel – period.
