New Megan Fox Film “Jennifer’s Body” Gets Release Date

Jennifer’s Body, the upcoming dark comedy/horror film by Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody, has been set for a September 2009 release date.

The new date will put it up against the offbeat CG-animated comedy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, the heist thriller Armored, and the Soderberg-directed Matt Damon thriller The Informant.

Jennifer’s Body stars Fox as a sexy cheerleader who is possessed by a demon and starts feeding off the boys in a small Minnesota farming town. Her “plain Jane” best friend (played by Mean Girls’ Amanda Seyfried) must kill her, then escape from a correctional facility to go after the Satan-worshipping rock band responsible for the horrible transformation.

The movie also stars Adam Brody, J.K. Simmons, and Johnny Simmons. Girlfight and Aeon Flux filmmaker Karyn Kasuma directs from Cody’s script.
