Megan Fox to Star in Live-Action 'TMNT' Movie

Sexy starlet Megan Fox will play April O’Neil, the human companion of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in the new live-action/CG TMNT hybrid movie being developed by producer Michael Bay for Paramount. Fox starred in the first two Transformers movies before being unceremoniously dropped by Bay, who both directed and produced the Transformers films (see "No Megan Fox").
Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox and Bay have kissed and made up and the result is according to Bay, "TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!"
TMNT director Jonathan Liebesman reportedly wowed Fox with story boards for the new film. Perhaps he should put some of those designs online where criticism of Bay’s re-imagining of the TMNT has been constant right from the first announcements about changes to the venerable kids property (see "Are the 'TMNT' From Outer Space?," "'TMNT' Now Just 'Ninja Turtles'," and "'Turtles' Movie Pushed Back to 2014").
