Megan Fox Wants to Play Indiana Jones

"He's an adventurous rogue archaeologist who barely escapes death chasing down treasures among the earth's most mysterious sites. What's not to love?"

64 Comments

Actress Megan Fox, famous for her roles in the Transformers and TMNT movies, would like to play the character Indiana Jones someday. She told GameSpot in an interview about her new video game gig that the famous archaeologist-adventurer would be her second choice, behind Tomb Raider's Lara Croft.

No Caption Provided

"I've always wanted to do Tomb Raider, but it's been done--and very well," Fox said. "So I guess I'd go with Indiana Jones, since I always loved how fun and free-spirited Indiana is.

"He's an adventurous rogue archaeologist who barely escapes death chasing down treasures among the earth's most mysterious sites. What's not to love?"

In all the Indiana Jones movies, the male character has been played by Harrison Ford. Last year, after the buzz around the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, Pitch Perfect's Anna Kendrick portrayed a female Indiana Jones--"Indianna"--for an an NBC sketch. The response was positive, even if it was just a joke.

With Ford signed up to play Indiana Jones yet again in 2019's fifth Indiana Jones movie, it would appear that Fox won't have a chance to take on the role anytime soon. It also remains to be seen if Disney would be up for changing the character's gender.

As for the next actress to play Lara Croft, that will be Alicia Vikander, who won an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for her part in The Danish Girl.

ignoring all the stupid stuff already pointed with gender, film franchise, terrible actress ect. Please stop remaking/rebooting movies and try Hollywood to make something close to being original and or creative for once.

In a world where people think it's OK to have a guy in a dress patrolling women's bathrooms and locker rooms, why not have Fox play a male character, everyone can just pretend she's a man and then when men want to have sex with her they'll realize they're secretly gay and can come out of the closet, which won't be a big deal because men everywhere will find out they're gay, it just took a woman who identifies as a man to make them realize it.

She said Tomb Raider was already done, and done well. So was Indiana Jones, so please leave that franchise alone

Hasn't she ever heard of a little lady arhaeologist that has been around since the 90s called Lara Croft? I would have Angelina Jolie in the role long before Megan Fox with her big sweaty face.

No. 1. You can't act. 2. You're not tough enough. 3. Indy is a dude.

So sick of this gender reversal trend in Hollywood. Especially on beloved classics. I think most women couldn't care less about these 'remakes'. The only satisfaction they're having is seeing men made upset by it all. I hope this bombs like the new Ghostbusters and becomes a tax write off for the Movie Studio/Producers.

@Redsyrup: It wouldn't be a big deal if we're talking new IPs. They want to create a brand new concept starring a woman? Sure, why not? But no, they'd rather ruin the names of the classics.

This isn't a Michael Bay movie Ms. Fox. Indy movies are comprised of more than just explosions and female eye candy. You have to actually act and not bash the director your making movies for. Two skills you have yet to show.

Playing Diana in a low budget high profit film titled "In Diana Jones" is more suitable for her acting abilities.

Closest she will get is dyeing her hair blonde and playing Elena in an Uncharted movie. She might actually work in that role too.

But really, can't they just create a new IP or something? Darn Hollywood leaning on the old stuff all the time.

"I've always wanted to do Tomb Raider, but it's been done--and very well"

... It has? I guess I missed that film, because the two with Angelina Jolie were terrible.

Anyway, after Kingdom of the Crystal Skull I don't have a problem with a lady Jones, but I've never been a Megan Fox fan. We need a new Indiana Jones actor anyway, unless they were serious about The Beef taking over.

@Mogan: I think she is talking about Jolie's portrayal of Croft, not the movie as a whole. The movies may have been poor but Jolie made a pretty good Croft and Megan Fox can't act her way out of a paper bag so, she likely wouldn't want to take on a role someone else has already done fairly well. A female Jones has never been done so there would be nothing to compare her bad acting with.
