“Bay let the cat out of the bag on his site with the simple phrase: TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!”[THR]
Just a couple of weeks ago we reported that Megan Fox was seriously contemplating giving up her career in Showbiz. The only that would lure her back, she claimed, was a project of such artistic heft and merit that she couldn’t possibly say no.
Well, the project has materialized. And it’s . . . Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Yes, Michael Bay (the one and only) has signed Fox to play April, the smart-but-sexy reporter that befriends the crime fighting ninja turtles as they kick and kung fu their way through the sewers of Generia Metropolis. Bay is not directing the movie, which should be a relief for Fox who had famously derogratory words for him after their Transformers collaboration, but she will get top billing as the only other main actors in the movie will be four guys in CGI turtle suits who say things like “Cowabunga” and “Yes, Sensei.”
