Megan Fox Cast in the 'TMNT' Film

The film's producer says the 'Transformers' star will appear in the upcoming movie.

We haven't heard anything new about Ninja Turtles in quite some time, but now Michael Bay, the movie's producer, made a big announcement via his website.

TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!
Michael Bay

As you probably remember, the actress worked with Bay on Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. She didn't return for 3rd film after a few very negative remarks about working with Bay. But, it appears whatever happened between them is being kept in the past and the two will collaborate once again.

Unless they introduce a new character, I think it's safe to say Fox will play April O'Neil. The film is scheduled to come out in 2014 and is being directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

Viners, can you see Megan Fox as the classic Turtles character or do you think she'll have a different role?

Wonder if they'll keep that weird turtle / human feelings Donatello has for her in the nickelodeon tv series. I always get weirded out by that, then again Donatello doesn't really have much to choose from.

I said it before and i'll say it again, "people think Donatello's feelings for April are weird because they don't have the hindsight to question if 4 TEENAE males who never saw a female before wouldn't fall in love for the first one they meet".

How would Donatello know she was female though, I mean I see two turtles in a tank not sure which one is which.

Well, don can always do things for April lol besides if they got together lol, male turtles have "thingies" lol it's not like it's that hard to tell, when they get aroused to mate they come out kind of. Not so sound odd or random lol but yeah. As far as the rest, the turtles are mutated and also grown smarter due to it like humans or similar.

What I find funny is in the cartoon it seemed Michaelangelo liked her, the movie Raphael and in the new show Donny lol. I don't know if Leo ever had the hots for April though.

Leo likes Ninja babes, like Lotus Blossom and Karai :-)

I seem to remember Mikey having the hots for that Neutrino girl.

haha that's true, the new show he seems in love with Karai lol

Well I'm cool with whatever direction they take, as long as Venus from the fox live action series isn't in it.

Grah, always confused her with Leo...

@GothamRed: Best Joker reference of the week!

I can't really see Megan Fox as April. Hopefully they don't go the April lab assistant route. Can you see Megan Fox acting smart? Even Megan Fox as a reporter sounds pretty far fetched. Everything that comes out of her mouth is ignorant. She reminds me too much of Paris Hilton. Style but no substance. I'm not too fond of the alien crap either. Well....we always have the comics if the movie sucks.

Why is everyone complaining? The film isn't even close to being out yet. Megan Fox isn't a horrible choice for April.

OMG they should totally get Gemma Arterton to play April!!!!

Ugh!! Please dont give Bay any more terrible ideas. Knowing him he just might do it.

Think she'd be great playing the role of Karai! Be nice to see her "naughty" side, yet have some heart while fighting Leo and the rest of the turtles. Who do you guys think would play a great role for her?

Some of the actresses I think would be a great Karai are:

  • Megan Fox
  • Brenda Song
  • Vanessa Hudgens
  • Bai Ling
  • Lucy Liu

Some of the actresses that I think would play a great April are:

  • Kirsten Dunst
  • Bryce Dallas Howard
  • Christina Hendricks
  • Emma Stone
