It’s nice to see that Megan Fox is back to playing the somewhat ditsy hot chick in Hollywood summer blockbusters. Regardless of how much she hates getting exploited, the fat paychecks are definitely worth all the bullshit.

She’s once again working with her ex-archenemy-turned-reluctant-friend Michael Bay, who’s one of the big-dog producers behind the $120-million “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The film, which is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, is slated for a summer, 2014 release. Megan will play the role of April O’Neil, a TV reporter from Channel 6 News.

Here’s more juice about the film’s development:

Filming began March 22, 2013 in Tupper Lake, New York. On March 24, Deadline reported that Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher were cast as Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo respectively. On April 2, 2013, Will Arnett was cast in an unspecified role. Shooting began in April in New York City and at Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh on Long Island, New York under the code words “four squared” (4SQ). On April 15, 2013, actor Danny Woodburn joined the cast as Splinter. On April 20, 2013, the film was renamed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. On April 29, 2013, Michael Bay retracted comments that the turtles will be aliens. Source
