    Who needs giant robots anyway?

    Megan Fox is showing that she's more than capable of moving on with her movie career, especially after a tumultuous you-can't-fire-me-I-quit-style feud with Transformers director Michael Bay. (Oh, and a couple of big bombs.)

    Let's just hope she's gotten better at suppressing the urge to call her director Hitler:

    Sources confirm to E! News that she's set to appear in the comedy Friends With Kids, alongside Jon Hamm, Hamm's longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt, Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and SNL's Kristen Wiig.

    The movie centers on two couples who see how much having kids has stressed out the other couples they know, so in order to outsmart the natural order and avoid any stress themselves, they choose to have a baby and then date other people.

    That sounds...healthy?

    But don't start thinking Megan is going to be showing off her maternal side. She'll actually be playing a girl Scott's character begins dating.

    In another sign that Megs has gotten better at keeping some of those inflammatory thoughts to herself, she's also starring in Passion Play, with Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray. The film, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, is about a woman born with wings who has ended up as a carnival attraction.

    Yeah, still trying to figure that one out.

    But she's still grabbing big-time roles, despite her very public beef with Bay. So can Megan soon claim a spot as one of Hollywood's top leading ladies? What do you think?
