After getting bounced from the 'Transformers' series and bombing in a trifecta of films -- "Jennifer's Body," "Jonah Hex" and "Passion Play" -- Megan Fox is currently undergoing a career reinvention. She recently wrapped the indie film "Friends With Kids" and now she's adding a high-profile comedy gig to her plate in a move that will certainly get people talking.

After getting bounced from the 'Transformers' series and bombing in a trifecta of films -- "Jennifer's Body," "Jonah Hex" and "Passion Play" -- Megan Fox is currently undergoing a career reinvention. She recently wrapped the indie film "Friends With Kids" and now she's adding a high-profile comedy gig to her plate in a move that will certainly get people talking.

THR reports that Megan Fox is in negotiations to join Judd Apatow's currently untitled "Knocked Up" spinoff. The film will star Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd, who are reprising their roles Debbie and Pete, in a film that will follow their relationship five years since the first film. Apatow recently revealed that he's hoping to bring back more members of the cast from the previous film but it will depend if schedules will allow it.

This is the first major bit of casting to be revealed for the film with more surely on the way. The project will go in front of cameras this summer and is set for a June 1, 2012 release.
