    Megan Fox’s ‘Jennifer’s Body’ May Get a Sequel

    Jennifer's Body Sequel: Megan Fox Set for Comeback in Cult Classic

    January 30, 2024, Hollywood, California: The horror-comedy “Jennifer’s Body,” initially deemed a flop upon its release, has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years. Critics, who once derided the film, now hail it as one of the best feminist revenge movies. Starring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried, the story unfolds in a small Minnesota town, following high school students Jennifer (Fox) and Needy (Seyfried). After Jennifer falls victim to a botched satanic ritual, she returns from the dead as a demon targeting male peers. This role is considered Megan Fox’s finest, winning over critics who initially dismissed her performance.

    Diablo Cody, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of “Juno,” discussed the growing admiration for “Jennifer’s Body” in an interview with Bloody Disgusting. Cody expressed a mix of happiness and frustration, questioning where this supportive audience was when the movie first premiered. She admitted feeling embarrassed and disheartened by the film’s initial reception, which was hard on both her and Fox. However, the tide of opinion has turned, with people now recognizing the film’s quality, something Cody believed in from the start.

    Cody also expressed a desire to work on a sequel to “Jennifer’s Body,” whether it be a new film, a television series, or a reboot. “Yes, I would love to make a sequel,” she stated. “I’m not done with ‘Jennifer’s Body.’ I just need to find people who believe in the movie as much as I do, and that hasn’t happened yet. Someone who believes in the film and has billions of dollars.” Cody confirmed to People magazine that she is currently seeking collaborators for a reboot or sequel.

    The possibility of a sequel to “Jennifer’s Body” raises intriguing questions. Could it redefine how feminist horror-comedy is approached in Hollywood? With the original film gaining a cult following and critical reevaluation, a sequel, reboot, or series could harness this momentum. Moreover, it provides an opportunity for Diablo Cody and Megan Fox to revisit and expand a narrative that, in retrospect, was ahead of its time.
