Surprising news for Michael Bay’s reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, tentatively going with the title Ninja Turtles but that could end up changing, as Megan Fox has been cast in the project. She’ll reportedly play April O’Neil – reporter and friend to the turtles. The film was slated for production a year ago but delayed due to script issues. It is now expected to begin filming later this year for release on May 16, 2014.
A very public spat between Fox and Transformers director Bay, in which she compared him to Hitler and he dropped her from the series, made it seem unlikely the two would ever work together again.
