Jordan Mechner adapting comic book

Megan Fox is attached to star in and produce “Fathom,” an adaptation of the Michael Turner-created comicbook, for Fox Atomic.

Script will be written by Jordan Mechner, best known for designing the “Prince of Persia” vidgame.

Fox would play Aspen Matthews, who was found abandoned on a ship and is adopted by a military man. She becomes a champion swimmer and marine biologist who comes of age realizing she has water-based powers and is part of an underwater race. The actress, who will appear in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and “Jennifer’s Body,” will produce with Safran Prods.’ Peter Safran, Brian Austin Green and Steve Bessen. Turner, who passed away last year, will remain as the project’s executive producer. Frank Mastromauro will also be an exec producer.

The comicbook was originally published by Top Cow and more recently by Aspen, an imprint that Turner created. The comicbook is still published after his death.
