MEGAN Fox is ready to battle it out for her dream role — Carrie!
The former Transformers star wants to play the tortured teen in a planned remake of the 1976 horror classic based on Stephen King‘s novel.
“Megan is a huge fan of the original and would love the chance to play the lead,” reveals a source close to the star.
“She’s 25 now but she’s sure she could still do justice to teenage Carrie. She’s told her people to make it happen.”
Recent reports claimed Fox turned down the chance to play Wonder Woman on the big screen.
“Megan has been linked to the role and there was an approach at one point but she’s not going anywhere near Wonder Woman,” says a source close to the star.
“She wants to move on to more serious roles.”
Insiders recently revealed that Fox is rethinking her career by taking a break from blockbusters and heading for Broadway.
“Megan is desperate to get away from her Transformers image and move on with her acting career,” a source said last month.
“Theater really appeals to her. She has nothing lined up yet but she’s open to offers. She hopes to mix theater work with some smaller indy movies and only do big movies if they are right for her.”
