In a new first-look image from Johnny & Clyde, Tom DeNucci’s take on the Bonnie and Clyde story, Megan Fox appears as a hardened casino crime boss. The upcoming film promises a modern spin on the infamous couple seen in the classic 1967 movie starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, as well as many other projects since. In September 2021, both Fox and Preacher’s Tyson Ritter officially joined DeNucci’s film. Fox is perhaps most known for her role in the Transformers franchise. In addition to Johnny & Clyde, Fox will appear in the upcoming Expendables 4 film alongside returning stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, and Randy Couture.
As reported by Deadline, a first look image of Johnny & Clyde shows Fox as casino crime boss Alana Hart. In the photo, Fox sits in an oversized leather chair at an apparent empty desk with her feet up. Her fourth-wall-breaking stare into the camera appears stern while retaining a, albeit fashionably, no-nonsense attitude. Check out the image below:
DeNucci’s Johnny & Clyde appears to be an excellent role for Fox as she leans on her acting experiences from past projects, such as her titular role in Jennifer’s Body. With Fox a supporting cast member to the leads Avan Jogia and Ajani Russell, it will be exciting to see if this particular rendition of the classic tale can stand out from the pack. With North American rights to the film now settled, it is only a matter of time before audiences will get their chance to see Fox and the rest of the Johnny & Clyde cast in action.
