In 2009, the film “Jennifer’s Body” hit the screens with a splash of blood and horror, featuring none other than Megan Fox. She portrayed a character who went on a terrifying spree, claiming the lives of nearly anyone who happened to cross her path. Despite its cult following and popularity amongst horror enthusiasts, the commercial reception didn’t quite match the film’s bold and gruesome narrative. Fast forward over a decade, and the idea of a sequel might seem a bit far-fetched – or does it?
Diablo Cody, the creative mind behind the original screenplay, is not one to let go of the story just yet. On the official podcast of Bloody Disgusting, Cody playfully expressed her interest in making “Jennifer’s Body 2” a reality. “Yes, I want to make a sequel! I haven’t finished with the saga. I just need to partner with people who believe in it as much as I do, and who have a billion dollars,” she shared with a laugh. While the future of a sequel remains uncertain, it’s clear that Cody’s passion for the story burns as bright as ever.
While fans may or may not get to revel in a second installment of “Jennifer’s Body,” there’s another project on the horizon that has Diablo Cody’s fans on the edge of their seats. Described by Cody as “the most direct, bloody and terrifying thing” she’s ever worked on, this new horror film promises to be a thrill ride for fans of the genre. Details are scarce, but the anticipation is already mounting.
