Megan Fox Cast in the 'TMNT' Film

Posted by k4tzm4n (35208 posts) - - Show Bio

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?

NO! NO NO NO! She looks nothing like April! For starters, April didn't have toe thumbs!

Oh Bay, sad you didn't get her bending over more stuff in transformers 3? That'd be funny if it wasn't so pathetic...oh what the heck I'll laugh anyway. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!!!

Why does she keep getting comic roles

to be fair amidst the slew of hate comments likely to follow.... the pic on the right looks pretty legit

Just boycott the movie. First their from space, now Megan Fox is in it? Yeah this'll be horrible. Screw you Bay.

Didn't she call Bay Hitler after Revenge of the Fallen came out ?

Godd****t!!!!!!! My expectations for this film just keeps going lower and lower! Why does Bay or Fox keep getting work anywhere!

#11 Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope (2388 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, yet another great franchise down the drain.

@_Creed_: No, worries! A trustworthy source tells me she'll be playing Krang!

Every time I see announcements for this movie it makes me cry. This just keep getting worse.

@Dark_Guyver: Well Bay makes money despite being horrible as for Fox, lets just assume she sucks a mean............

#16 Posted by mcbean (288 posts) - - Show Bio

SHE NOT A GOOD ACTRESS SOOOO WHY IS SHE GOING TO BE IN TMNT.

#17 Posted by dondave (26660 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't mind

So long as the cartoon keeps quality I'm fine. She is a horrible actress and clearly Bay has short term memory that she called him Hitler. Oh well another serious ruined because Bay is involved.

BIG SURPRISE. I bet she's an alien too.

@Suprman: I aim to please, it's what separates me from Michael Bay.

#24 Posted by Nicodemus (65 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe she'll play Erma, April's slutty android loving best friend/co-worker. Makes sense.

Ok Bay is just trolling us now, I can't even imagine what the next announcement could be

#26 Posted by howlett76 (57 posts) - - Show Bio

wow bay must really be hard up for megan fox again...all that running around in the yellow jumpsuit she wears...

#27 Posted by SpidermanWins (3975 posts) - - Show Bio

oh no

#28 Posted by dreamfall31 (473 posts) - - Show Bio

This movie sucked the moment Michael Bay was attached to it, now it sucks a thousand times more than she is involved!

God fucking damn it all to hell! I thought they canned this when it leaked that they're not Mutants and not Turtles and not Ninjas, and not really Teenagers, thus pissing off EVERYONE who ever loved ANY incarnation of the Turtles.

Some people are so blinded by the thirst for money, that it causes them to lose their values and do things they shouldn't do.

@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?

I try to be at least somewhat optimistic about projects that have yet to be released but this just looks bad. I never got into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles much but I feel for anyone who is a fan. This seems to have disaster written all over it.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

In the words of Magneto ''You never learn do you?'' Or maybe he does, come to think of it the Transformers were all very lucrative for Bay, I mean, hell Im'a go see this btch too.

They're still trying to do this? Oish...

I'd be upset by this, but IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & all related IDW TMNT comics have been amazing. Couldn't care less about this movie.

#41 Edited by Raw_Material (3207 posts) - - Show Bio

No I can't... but it'll be awesome to see her try and play the role of April O'Neil though! Very anxious to see this TMNT film more than I already did now that she's in it!!

Megan Fox??!!!!!!! FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This movie is not officially going to bomb!!!!!!!!

Hope this movie defines itself as a comedy

The biggest mistake here was Michael Bay. Any crap that follows is merely a byproduct.

#48 Posted by mightypug78 (303 posts) - - Show Bio

:( but wasnt april a redhead and aren't there dozens of women out there who could play april better? If a well known actress plays april, they wont see the character as april, they'll see her as the well know actress. let someone new to the world of acting play april!

I think I'll stay home and watch TMNT 2: The Secret of the Ooze instead.

Go Ninja, go ninja, go!

Wait a minute...I thought this movie was ground to a halt? Well, that's already disappointment right there...and on top of this...they want her the movie?! If she has to be in this it better be another role other than Ms. O'Neil...::shakes my head:: God help us all...
