NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Megan Fox is making a run for the border.

The actress will play the lead role in the Screen Gems border thriller "The Crossing."

Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi wrote the script, in which a couple returning from a Mexican vacation are carjacked and the husband kidnapped. The wife (Fox) must smuggle heroin across the border in order to spring him.

Fox has been racking up projects: She'll play an angel opposite Mickey Rourke in the indie drama "Passion Plays," will star in the Western "Jonah Hex" for Warner Bros. and will topline and produce the comic-book auctioneer "Fathom" for Fox Atomic.

She's next onscreen in this summer's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and the Diablo Cody-penned supernatural high school tale "Jennifer's Body."
