Ninja Turtles Will Reunite Megan Fox And Michael Bay, Unknowns Testing For Turtle Roles

I’ve no idea of what the actual story is, but Megan Fox and Michael Bay worked together on two Transformers films and not on a third. She compared him to Hitler in a magazine interview, and when I saw them both at a press conference, relations were definitely icy. More than that is hearsay.

But whatever. Doesn’t really matter. Never did, and matters less now that they’re working together again.

Bay used his blog to announce that Fox will star in the upcoming Ninja Turtle movie that he’s producing. This is the one where they’re neither mutant nor teenage. It’s going to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman who doesn’t exactly have the best of track records.

In short, this project is on a hiding to nothing.

Bay said:

TMNT: We Are Bringing Megan Fox Back Into The Family

I wouldn’t read too much into him calling it TMNT, with the teenage and mutant back in place, mind you. Not unless everything has changed in just the last couple of months.

The Hollywood Reporter are rounding the story out with a splash of the pretty obvious – Fox is going to play April O’Neil.

Anna Kendrick? No. Elizabeth Olsen? No. Megan Fox? Yes. That shows you the thought processes at work on this project.

The story goes that Liebesman showed Fox some of the film’s storyboards for the film and she was impressed enough to shake hands. “The storyboards that reunited Michael Bay and Megan Fox.” Yeah, whoever drew them should put that on their CV. In green ink.

Rumours that Fox liked the screenplay so much she’s having it tattooed upon her body are based entirely on an idle notion that entered my head when choosing the image at the head of this story.

Meanwhile, actors are testing for the four lead turtle roles. Bay, his producing partners and Liebesman are reportedly looking at unknowns to Turtle up via motion capture. I guess they’ll also need a leotard-clad Splinter at the very least.

Ninja Turtles is due in cinemas next spring. Merchandisers, start your engines.
