Megan Fox looks like she's gunning for "action star" status, and if the trailer for 'Rogue' is any indication, she's well on her way. In this film, Fox plays a tough-as-nails mercenary leader on a rescue mission against an armed enemy. But as the mission goes south, Fox (naturally) is going to show us that her character is a survivor.

Here's the official synopsis:

Megan Fox (Transformers) tackles a thrilling new role as a battle-hardened mercenary in this explosive action saga. As team leader O’Hara, she leads a lively squad of soldiers on a daring mission: rescue hostages from their captors in remote Africa. But as the mission goes awry and the team is stranded, O’Hara’s squad must face a bloody, brutal encounter with a gang of rebels—and the horde of ravenous, enraged lions they encounter.

The movie is directed by M.J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Silent Hill: Revelation) and Fox's costars include Philip Winchester, Jessica Sutton, Calli Taylor, Brandon Auret, Adam Deacon, and Sisanda Henna.

'Rogue' will be available on demand and digital on August 28.
