Former “Transformers” star Megan Fox has expressed her desire to star in a Japanese anime live-action movie, Sailor Moon 2014 remake.
“That could feasibly be made into a live action movie,” Fox admitted.
“I don’t know how many Americans were into that.
I was into that, but I don’t know how huge it was here.”
“That’s not actually a bad idea.” Although, there’s still no confirmation about the project, there is an actual possibility for “Sailor Moon” to have its very own live-action movie adaptation with all of the reboots and remakes trend, especially now that a new series has aired.
