Megan Fox replacing Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy?

The Superficial / June 11, 2009

Megan Fox is allegedly stealing another franchise role. IGN reports that she’s being considered for the reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

Fox is being eyed to play the title role of Buffy Summers in the recently announced big-screen relaunch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The new movie will not involve Joss Whedon or be tied in anyway to either the 1992 film or the TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar that followed.

Smart move. This will silence any male Buffy fans who are concerned about the movie by giving them nerd boners. As for the female fans, simply cast Robert Pattinson and make sure he never wears a shirt. In fact, the end credits should consist of nothing but his airbrushed abs. Or mine, if he’s busy that day. Hopefully no one will notice the jarring transition from pale to golden awesome.
