Hollywood actress and new mom Megan Fox and director Michael Bay are teaming up once again to shatter your childhood dreams. The duo worked together previously on “Transformers”, but their working relationship came to an end when she publicly trashed him for directing like Hitler. Now, it appears that they have buried the hatchet and are going to try this again with a new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie.
In a post on his official website, Michael plainly said that they are bringing Megan back into the family. “Huffington Post” reports (via The Hollywood Reporter):
The producer didn’t reveal what role Fox would play, but according to THR she’s set for April O’Neil, reporter and human friend to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Actress Judith Hoag played O’Neil in the 1990 film version of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
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.
