Transformers star Megan Fox is said to have been offered to play the role of Red Sonja in a remake of the film by the same name by producer Robert Rodriguez.Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen, 46, had starred in the 1985 original, which portrayed her as a teenager turned warrior from the Conan comic strip, opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The remake has been on the cards for a while and was set to star the producer’s former fiancee Rose McGowan, until she accepted a different role in the remake of Conan.

Rodriguez, 41, recently admitted that the production had been beset by money problems. “If I kept the project myself, we could’ve just made it, but it belonged to another company that had financing problems,” the Sun quoted him as saying. “They had to wait until they made a couple of other movies first.”
