Megan Fox is set to star in the upcoming comic-book adaptation Fathom. Fox Atomic is currently looking to bring aboard several writers to revamp the script as a vehicle for Megan Fox, who, our source says, has officially signed onto the project this week. Fox is set to play the lead character of Aspen.
Megan will play Aspen Matthews, an Olympic swimmer, who then becomes a marine Biologist, and eventually gets involved in research at a high-tech underwater lab.
At the lab, she discovers a mysterious underwater race, and her own water-based powers. The original creator of the comic is the late Michael Turner, who sadly won't see his creation come to life as he passed from cancer earlier this year.
