So you’re wondering how Megan Fox is back in the Michael Bay fold, right? No, she’s not in “Transformers” once again, but she is the star of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," the Platinum Dunes (Bay’s company)-produced picture. In the past, she called him Hitler, he had nasty words for her and there was a lot of back and forth (which lead to her being kicked out of the the series for “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon”).

Never in a million years would I have thought the nostalgia for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” was at an all-time high, especially considering the mediocre original films and cartoon series that wasn’t all that special, but this is when you realize you’re old and not the right demo.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The voice roles of these movies aren’t already nailed down? I guess with a movie like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” you can add the voice cast way late in the game. Already starring Megan Fox and Will Arnett, Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shaloub have been added to the cast as the voices of hero in a half shell Leonardo and the sensei Splinter, respectively. Of course, IMDB/Wikipediak list Pete Ploszek (“Parks & Recreation”) as Leonardo, and it appears that info was both tenuous and incorrect.

There are more than few grown up men and women who are weirdly invested in keeping the integrity of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" intact in the Michael Bay produced reboot. Strong opinions flew around from all corners last year as the movie headed into production, with everything from the origin of Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michaelangelo to how they look, hotly debated. Well, like it or not, the final result is a few months away and the first trailer has landed online.

Certain corners of the internet get worked up about silly things. For example: a year ago, when Michael Bay (who is producing "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles") said that, “These turtles are from an alien race, and they’re going to be tough, edgy, funny, and completely lovable,” nerds lost their shit. Message boards lit up, underoos were burned, controversy gripped the nation. Okay, not really, but folks got unreasonably bent out of shape about a movie about mutant ninja turtles. But it's all cool now bro, as Bay is here to assuage the audience he hopes will show up for this thing, that original origin story is intact.

So, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" are still coming in the Micheal Bay produced franchise reboot, the casting continues to be intriguingly random. Thus far we have Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo), Jeremy Howard (Donatello) and Noel Fisher (Michelangelo) as the heroes on the half shell, Megan Fox as April O'Neil and Will Arnett in a role being kept under wraps. But you can take Splinter off the list of possibilities as to who Gob Bluth will play.

We suppose the plan by director Jonathan Liebesman is set to everyone's expectations so low that the end result of whatever "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" turns out to be it can be anything but better than what the first impressions are giving off. With April O'Neill being played by Megan Fox and the four turtles by dudes we never heard of -- Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo), Jeremy Howard (Donatello) and Noel Fisher (Michelangelo) -- now there's some more random casting.

Having landed its Raphael just before in the weekend in the shape of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" actor Alan Ritchson, Michael Bay hasn't hung around before locking down the rest of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" for the mo-cap-heavy reboot of the comic/animation franchise he's producing for director Jonathan Liebesman. Deadline report that the mutant quartet is being filled out by Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Jeremy Howard as Donatello and Noel Fisher as Michelangelo. The latter's perhaps the best-known of the quartet, having previously appeared in Liebsesman's "Battle: Los Angeles," as well as "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part Two" and "Hatfields & McCoys." Howard seems to be a complete newcomer, while Ploszek is our immediate favorite of the four, given that he appeared in an episode of "Parks & Recreation." The four join Megan Fox in the film, which opens on May 20th, 2014.

Despite that sacrificial ritual we did a while back to try and ensure otherwise, the Michael Bay-produced "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie continues to insist on being an actual thing. Our hopes were raised when the film was shut down a while back due to budgetary issues, but it was retooled and is now ticking towards the start of production with Megan Fox cast as female lead April O'Neil a while back.
