Megan Fox Is Completely Unrecognisable In Her Upcoming Role

Fans have been left doing a double-take as images have emerged of Megan Fox in her upcoming role, and she looks a far cry from the Megs we've all gotten used to over the years.

The 32-year-old has swapped her usual look of long brown hair for a blonde bob, for her portrayal as American war correspondent Marguerite Higgins in the film Jangsa-ri 9.15. Who'd have thought a new 'do could change someone's image so dramatically, eh?

The pics of the Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star were taken on the set of the forthcoming film, which deals with the conflict in Korea between 1950 and 1953.

Snapped alongside Choi Moon-soon, governor of Gangwon Province, she can be seen sporting her blonde coiffed hair and army-green get-up, and it looks as though fans are still struggling to get their heads around her new look.

In response to the pics, one person on Twitter wrote: "Honestly cannot recognise Megan Fox when she's wearing this blonde wig."

Another simply tweeted: "Megan Fox, is that you?!"

The film is set to tell the story of the Jangsa landing operation, which occurred in 1950 during the Korean War. Commanded by US General Douglas McArthur, the landing was an important part of the Battle of Incheon.

Marguerite Higgins, played by Megan in the movie, was a journalist and correspondent during the Korean War and, following it, the Vietnam War.

In 1951 she released the book War In Korea: The Report Of A Woman Combat Correspondent and became the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Foreign Correspondence.

It's widely believed that the work Marguerite helped make changes to the access granted to women reporters, helping to advance their cause in the public eye.

The film, which is currently still filming in South Korea, is being brought to life by South Korean production house, Taewon Entertainment.

In a statement shared with Variety, a spokesperson for Taewon Entertainment said: "Fox is very passionate about her role and has spent time studying Higgins and preparing visual concepts."

Megan will be starring alongside the veteran Korean actor Kim Myung-min, who will play a guerrilla task force commander, and the rapper-turned-actor Choi Min-ho (also of K-pop boyband Shinee) who's said to be playing a soldier.

Jangsa-ri 9.15 is the latest film from director Kwak Kyung-taek - known for his record-breaking 2001 film Friend, which became the highest-grossing Korean film of all time following its release, only to be surpassed by Kang Woo-suk's Silmido in 2003.
