Red Sonja rumor: Rose McGowan out, Megan Fox in?

If the eye-candy teaser poster of Rose McGowan licking blood off her sword had you counting down the days until you could see her swinging that sword as Red Sonja, it's time to stop counting.

Now that McGowan has been cast as an evil half-human/half-witch in Conan, it's up to another to headline the upcoming Red Sonja—and pajiba is reporting that an offer has been made to Megan Fox..

According to the site's insider source, not only is McGowan off the project, but so is director Douglas Aarniokoski. The entire previous direction for the film has been scrapped, and Millennium Films is looking for a new writer to take another pass at David N. White's script.

So what do you think of the casting change? Are you ready for Megan Fox in a chain-mail bikini?
