It was bound to happen — at some point the production of the upcoming Diablo Cody-scripted Jennifer’s Body, which will star Megan Fox as a demon-posessed cheerleader who terrorizes the boys in her small town, would ultimately have to find more actors. At last note, the count was two — Megan Fox in the lead role and Alpha Dog’s Amanda Seyfried in the role of the book-smart best friend who is saddled with task of stopping Jennifer’s rampage.

This week, producer Jason Reitman and director Karyn Kusama (Girlfight) picked up to familiar faces for the film, Adam Brody (who previously worked with Reitman on Thank You for Smoking) and J.K. Simmons (who worked on Thank You for Smoking and more recently in Reitman’s Oscar nominated Juno). Brody will play Nikolai, a hot lead singer of an up-and-coming band with a penchant for evil — in that they are the ones responsible for turning Jennifer to the dark side. Simmons will play a high school science teacher.

As for Brody and Simmons, neither can do much wrong in my book, especially when you put them on a project with Jason Reitman. They are both quickly becoming go-to guys for the Reitman camp, a camp that seems to be gaining steam much like the Apatow clan, only with more serious subject matter. It will be interesting to see how the light-hearted, often cynical tone of Reitman’s films translates into the horror genre. As well, it will be interesting to see how much of Reitman’s stamp ends up on Karyn Kusama’s film. No matter what happens, this should be a project that should be on the top of your watch list, as it oozes potential — at least it does until we find reason to believe otherwise.
