Megan Fox’s drama Passion Play will not be heading straight to DVD without a theatrical run. A rep for the film confirms to EW that the off-beat thriller — starring Mickey Rourke as a musician who gets tangled up with a gangster (Bill Murray) and a circus freak (Fox) — will have a limited release in New York City and Los Angeles starting May 6 before heading to home video on May 31. We’ve also got your exclusive first look at the theatrical poster, which hints at Fox’s feathery character without giving much information about the plot. (The tagline “Love is stronger than death” doesn’t help a whole lot either.) The film was widely panned at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, but a theatrical release will let audiences decide for themselves how, well, passionate they feel about it.

Megan Fox indentified with her character in Passion Play so much that she “wanted to be her forever”.
The beautiful Hollywood actress plays Lily in the film, a lady who is kept in a glass box as part of a carnival attraction.
Megan admits the role has been one of her favourites of her career so far, and says she especially appreciated the vulnerable nature of her character.
The movie’s director Mitch Glazer also saw similarities between Megan and her character. In fact, the parallels between their lives were one of the main reasons the actress was cast in the role.
The director had reportedly been working on the film’s script for 20 years before it came into fruition, meaning 24-year-old Megan was only a little girl when the movie concept was first hatched.
The edgy fairytale romance also stars Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray, and has received fantastic reviews.
Megan appeared at last nights ‘Spike TV’s “Scream 2010″ awards’ accompanied by her husband Brian Austin Green. She awarded the Best Villain trophy to her “Passion Play” co-star Mickey Rourke during the pre-taped ceremony. The not-to-be-missed event airs on Spike TV on Tuesday, October 19 at 9PM ET/PT.
