Fox Atomic has hired Karyn Kusama to direct Jennifer’s Body, a quirky comedic thriller written by Juno scribe Diablo Cody.
Megan Fox will play a cheerleader in a sleepy town whose perfect life goes haywire when she becomes possessed and begins killing the young men in town who lust after her.
Hard C partners Jason Reitman and Dan Dubiecki will produce with Mason Novick. Reitman directed the Cody-scripted Juno for Atomic’s sister company Fox Searchlight.
Kusama directed Girlfight and Aeon Flux. Shooting begins in early March.
