DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Rivulet Media’s Colson Baker music saga feature Taurus has added Maddie Hasson (Malignant, God Bless America), Scoot McNairy (C’mon C’mon, The Quiet Place Part II, Argo), Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black, John Wick: Chapter 2), Demetrius ‘Lil Meech’ Flenory (Euphoria), recording artist Lil Tjay, Megan Fox (Transformers) and musician Naomi Wild.
Taurus, formerly known as Good News, tells the story of a rising but troubled musician (Baker) as he spends his days and nights searching endlessly for the inspiration to record one last song. His sister-like assistant (Maddie Hasson) wants to save him, his collaborators (Scoot Mcnairy, Lil Meech and Lil TJay) want him in the studio, while his dealer (Ruby Rose) and his ex (Megan Fox) push him deeper into the void. The movie explores the darkness of fame, addiction, the artistic process and the music industry. Tim Sutton directed off his original screenplay.
Baker is working on several new songs. Jib Polhemus produced alongside Rivulet Media’s film division President, Rob Paris and COO Mike Witherill. Anonymous Content and Paradigm are co-representing the worldwide rights.
Fox is repped by ICM Partners.

VARIETY – Megan Fox, best known for “Transformers” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” is set to star in suspense thriller “Aurora.” Arclight Films will start worldwide sales for the movie at the European Film Market in Berlin.
“Aurora,” to be directed by Lazar Bodroža (“A.I. Rising”), tells the story of a female astronaut stationed in outer space to monitor solar storms that endanger earth. “She discovers shock waves from solar storms are bending time pushing her into an emotional and psychological struggle with her past and present,” according to a statement from Arclight.
Arclight, led by Gary Hamilton, has joined forces with Jordan Gertner (“Spring Breakers,” “The Virgin Suicides”) and Toby Gibson (“The Lego Movie” franchise) to produce and finance the pic. The script is written by Pete Bridges, Toby Gibson and Stuart Willis (“Restoration”). Tim Peternel will executive produce. Production is set to start in May in Serbia.
“’Aurora’ is a beautiful action-packed visual feast set in space and Megan is perfectly cast to play a character battling demons from her past,” said Hamilton.
Arclight’s “Possessor” premiered at Sundance in competition, and the company is screening four new films at EFM. In addition, Arclight’s “Escape From Pretoria,” starring Daniel Radcliffe and Daniel Webber, is releasing theatrically in March in the U.S. and U.K., and “Hotel Mumbai” has grossed $30 million at the box office to date. Arclight recently announced its new project, “The Portable Door,” starring Christoph Waltz and Guy Pearce.
Megan Fox makes her debut as the global ambassador and collaborator for Frederick’s of Hollywood! She’ll also be designing an exclusive collab collection, launching in 2017! Can’t wait to see that 😉
New Girl has a new girl—and it’s quite a big name.
Megan Fox has signed on for a starring role on the Fox series during star Zooey Deschanel’s maternity leave.
The Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star has been cast in a multi-episode arc during next year’s fifth season.
Here’s the plan: Several episodes into the season, Deschanel’s Jess will find herself on sequestered during jury duty (and will not appear in the show). During that period, Fox’s character will rent out Jess’ room. Fox plays “Reagan,” described as a “gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft.”
“It’s insane to me that such a gorgeous person can be so funny, but I guess we just all have to accept it,” said executive producer Liz Meriwether. “I’ve been a fan of her comedic skills since This is 40, and I’m so excited to have her on the show. We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part – she’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up.”
Fox will first appear in the sixth episode of next season, which is scheduled to premiere in January.
The role will mark Fox’s first major TV gig in a decade, having last had a series regular role on ABC’s Hope & Faith. Fox arranged to take on the New Girl role in addition to her duties on the upcoming TMNT sequel.
Last month Deschanel had her first child, a baby girl. She also wed Jacob Pechenki over the summer. (And in other New Girl birth-beat news, Max Greenfield welcomed his second child, a baby boy, last month).
Today (May 16, 2015) is Megan Fox’s 29th birthday! Happy birthday Megan from the staff here at megan-fox.us! I hope you have a great birthday!
