Wait a second. Don’t these two hate each other? Megan Fox and Michael Bay have apparently reconciled. Fox has joined the cast of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” the live-action and animation hybrid that Bay is producing for Paramount. (Jonathan Liebesman is directing.) Bay announced the casting news on his website, once again eschewing trades like Variety and Deadline.com.
“TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!” Bay wrote on MichaelBay.com. The producer didn’t reveal what role Fox would play, but according to THR she’s set for April O’Neil, reporter and human friend to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Actress Judith Hoag played O’Neil in the 1990 film version of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
Well this is news to me. Maybe motherhood has calmed down Fox? Perhaps she’s grown more mature since her Transformers days? But I gotta say a Michael Bay production of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Not sure I’m seeing it. I kind of miss that 1990 movie where Corey Feldman was the voice of Donatello. I mean that was pretty awesome.
