Michael Bay and Megan Fox had a bit of a falling out before the third Transformers movie. Whatever the reasons it looks as if it is all behind them as the following message appeared on Michael Bay’s web site.
TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!
He doesn’t say what role she will be playing, but it could be the reporter, April O’Neil, who discovers the Turtles. Will Fox be wearing the yellow jumpsuit?
Over at THR they confirm she will be playing April.
Sources say Fox and Bay reconciled over a series of recent meetings and that one tete-a-tete that won her over was with director Jonathan Liebesman, who wowed her with the storyboards, according to insiders. (Bay is not directing the movie but producing it via his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.)
The movie is in the casting stage and last week was testing actors, mostly relative unknowns, for the roles of the Ninjas – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael – which will be motion-captured.
Love him or hate him, but if Bay is involved the film will probably make a whole heap of money. Fox would not have been my choice for the role of April O’Neil, but then again I don’t know who would be.
How do you feel about the whole Ninja Turtle movie?
