Megan Fox to star in TMNT reboot

She’ll play April O’Neil

It looks as if Michael Bay and Megan Fox have put their well-publicised differences firmly in the past with the announcement that the star has been cast in his forthcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Bay and Fox famously fell out during the making of Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, but the director announced their reunion via his blog, stating, “TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family”.

According to Heat Vision, Fox will play intrepid TV reporter April O’Neil, who soon becomes a close ally of the turtles when she stumbles upon their sewer-based lair.

The film is currently casting unknowns for its titular heroes who will be animated using motion-capture techniques. No turtle-suits this time around, it seems.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the film was recently pushed back to 2014, although with casting beginning to take shape, hopefully there will be no further delays. Ninja Turtles will open in the UK on 16 May 2014.

Is Fox a good pick for the role? Tell us, below!

      I'm sorry but just no. The reason Bay wants Fox in this movie for sex appeal and sex appeal only. She had no other purpose apart from that in the first two Transformers film so I'm guessing that's what her purpose is in this film. Also, I don't believe Fox is right for the role of April. I think Emma Stone would have been a better choice as she can actually play more than one character. Then again I think she knows better than to work with Michael Bay.

      No just No. One she can't act. Two she's only good when not wearing much, which isn't April. Three See can't act. four she can't act and five see was the reason transformers revenge of fallen was such a flop. Please Bay make Turtle right

      To be fair, this film is going to live or die on how the turtles are portrayed - I don't think the casting of O'Neill would have made much difference unless they'd got someone who truly could own the role and steal a bit of the limelight (Emma Stone, as mentioned above, is a good shout) - but its all going to be about the turtles. I just hope we get to see some 'The Raid' style martial arts action.

      I was hoping he'd cast someone hot to play April instead of someone like Fox.
