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?

I think she's perfect for the role.... of Leatherhead.

Don't use me to b.tch about a film you are going to see whether i'm in it or not.

Comparing the pic on the right, Megan could play April if she dyed her hair the right shade of red.

This is the most Disturbing thing I have read all day, and I've been been reading Rob Liefeld's homo erotic fan fiction early this morning......

No, why bother? Even if I say I can't act in public, i'll get parts. I'm beautiful..I don't need to know how to act.

She has a mutation, she has toe hands.

I'll say something nice. She was attractive once, you know before the plastic surgery.

We'll just stick to the comics and the TV series.

I just hope everyone has the sense enough to ignore this and not bother to see the film, if it ever comes out.

if they do have her play april i hope they go the route of the tv show and have splinter train her. so tired of the damsel in distress and i know megan feels the same way. she needs the money so she can self produce the Fathom movie so definitely going to see this train wreck now

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.

What is this?! I don't even....

I bet she plays the role of michelleangelo.

Think Michael Bay's a great addition to the TMNT Films and will give us Turtle fans, a great action movie like he did for Transformer fans and those that aren't so familiar with the cartoon animated series as well. Hoping to see this film take over the box offices considering how long ago since we've seen a non-animated Ninja Turtle movie (since the 1990 trilogy films). Pray that the Turtles, and Splinter look badass and realistic-appearing knowing how much effects and modern technology Michael Bay uses for his screenplays and brings the tools he used to produce the Transformer films. If they do just that, then in my eyes it's already a great movie! Finger's crossed!

@Mini_Bat: I know what he will do next, he will have LeBeouf as Jessie, Petter Cullen as Splinter, Mark Ryan, Darius McCrary, Robert Foxworth, and Jess Harbell as the turtles, Hugo Weaving as Shredder, and it will have a lot of explosions and a ending where the good guys win. End of story, I just saved everyone a lot of money and time. Thank me later or now, I don't care. Why the hell are you still reading what I am typing don't you have something better to do?

You just made my day... Thanks!

If Bay does anything well, it's action.

I'm not going to hate this until I see it. Just like Transformers, it could be a fun action movie that I don't have to think to hard about.

BUT. Megan Fox is awful. Just awful. Bad, bad choice.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Screw you, Michael Bay!

Posted by hunter5024

I am very surprised about this. I can't believe Michael Bay hired her again after her (totally justified) comments.

Posted by n25philly

She's perfect for a movie about mutants and aliens. I've never seen her in a part where I found her believable as a human

Ughhhh...I'll stick with the cartoon. This is just more proof that the demographic for the new movie is not the long time fanbase.

Posted by Onemoreposter

You all are nuts. She was the best part of the Transformers franchise. Megan Fox is delicious eye candy. I may even go see this monstrosity of a movie in theaters now.

Posted by Smurfboy

Poor Megan. So much hate, eh? Still, I'll be watching the new TMNT movie. I will hold my judgement until I actually see it.

Well....my childhood is officially raped.

It's trendy to hate on Fox these days. She's got a supporting role in a film that's not exactly going to require Oscar caliber acting ability, and fools are running around like it's the end of the world. Megan Fox isn't a good actress, but she doesn't have to be a good actress for this role, so the hysteria gang should probably just chill out.

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".

I have no issue with Megan Fox.

I have an issue with the fact that this movie is still being made. PLEASE KILL THIS MOVIE and find a different director. Fuck Michael Bay.

Michael Bay is the producer, not the director.

Also, please censor your post, Mbecks.
