Megan Fox Joins Michael Bay's 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Reboot

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist February 21, 2013 at 9:31PM

Well, that was fast. Aside from "Jonah Hex," and "Passion Play," where intentions were good, Megan Fox hasn't been in a truly terrible movie since, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (let's not speak of "Jennifer's Body" shall we?) The actress fell out with director Michael Bay in 2008 in the aftermath of the critical hazing the film received and seemed to be taking a promising detour from blockbuster shlock with interesting roles in smaller comedies like "Friends With Kids," and Judd Apatow's "ThIs Is 40." But is that excursion over already?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Megan Fox

Well, that was fast. Aside from "Jonah Hex," and "Passion Play," where intentions were good, Megan Fox hasn't been in a truly terrible movie since, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (let's not speak of "Jennifer's Body" shall we?) The actress fell out with director Michael Bay in 2008 in the aftermath of the critical hazing the film received and seemed to be taking a promising detour from blockbuster shlock with interesting roles in smaller comedies like "Friends With Kids," and Judd Apatow's "ThIs Is 40." But is that excursion over already?

Bay and Fox have buried the hatchet with whatever beef they had and Fox will now star as April O'Neil in the awful-sounding live-action CG hybrid movie "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot from Bay's Platinum Dunes company and Paramount. "TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!" Bay wrote on his website tonight. Several outlets including THR confirmed she'll be playing O'Neil, the one human friend of the Ninja Turtles. Jonathan Liebesman, director of two films that have made our worst of lists two years in a row, "Battle Los Angeles," (we didn't publish a list in 2011, but trust us) and "Wrath Of The Titans," is helming. Good luck.
