EW has released the first still from the upcoming Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox film Passion Play, the directorial debut of Mitch Glazer. The shot reveals little about the film other than the fact that as usual, Megan Fox is stunning. The synopsis sounds pretty cool: Rourke will play a troubled musician while Fox is a winged sideshow attraction and they “rescue each other from dangerous circumstances.” Coming off The Wrestler, Mickey Rourke has reemerged as one of Hollywood’s best actors, and certainly one of the most unique. I’m also excited to see Megan Fox get to play a role where she’s given more to do than run from robots, because she’ll have the chance to really prove herself as an actress rather than just an endlessly quotable sex symbol. Rourke recently called her “probably the best young actress I’ve ever worked with,” which is high praise indeed.
