Things continue to progress for the new Michael Bay produced Ninja Turtles film and this most recent piece of news is a little surprising. Michael Bay and Megan Fox had quite the public dispute following the release of ‘Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen’ after which Fox didn’t return for ‘Transformers 3’.
Well it seems bridges have been rebuilt to some degree with a recent update to Bay’s personal website as follows;
TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!
It is now being reported that Fox will be starring as April O’Neil in the new film. O’Neil has appeared in both TMNT comics, films, and TV series, the character has been reinvented slightly across different incarnations however she’s always a good friend of the turtles.
So there you have it, it seems Michael Bay can forgive transgressions of the past, personally I’ve never been a fan of the actress, but her performance in Judd Apatow’s ‘This is 40’ is one of the more likeable performances of her career.
How do fans feel about Fox stepping in as O’Neil in the controversial film? Let us know what you think!
