Megan Fox joins Michael Bay's 'TMNT'
The legendary tension surrounding Megan Fox's exit from "Transformers 3" is evidently water under the bridge.
The filmmaker behind that still-running franchise, Michael Bay, has announced on his website that he's bringing Fox into the fold for his upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot.
"TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!" said Bay, whom Fox once compared to Hitler after working with him on the first two "Transformers" movies.
Yet by the time "Transformers 3" opened in 2011, Bay seemed unperturbed by Fox's statement.
“I wasn’t hurt, because I know that’s just Megan," he said ahead of the movie's release. "When you’re days and months on a set, it’s like a family. You say rude things and you make up.”
Although Bay hasn't clarified what role Fox, 26, will be playing, reports suggest that she's going to portray April O'Neil, the human friend of the turtles. In the original version, the gang of four reptiles mutate into warriors after coming in contact with radioactive slime.
The new movie version, however, is going to be different. As Bay's explained, "these turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.”
That news created such an uproar that Bay, who's producing the movie helmed by Jonathan Liebesman, had to defend his stance.
“Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script," Bay said last spring. "Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world."
According to Entertainment Weekly, filming's expected to start in the spring.

So what does the M in TMNT stand for now if not mutant? I guess Mr. Bay will rename it TANT, for Alien. Ha!
quiet please i'm on a conf call. thank you.
Michael Bay being aloud to make movies is proof that God doesn't exist. If he/she did, then they would NOT allow this travesty to continue!
MY NINJA TURTLES WERE MUTANTS *NOT* ALIENS!!!!!!!!!!!
allowed, not aloud
la donnie... no clue
never saw her before in my life....all #'s changed over night.
I simply could not go away your web site previous to suggesting that I extremely liked the habitual info an individual supply for your guests? Is gonna be return regularly in order to check up on new posts
There was a time when I would have jlzzed up every pore on her body...and I still will but, wow, damaged goods...and weird thumbs
what happened to it's face??????????
1980s daisy duke look alike?
With as much botox as she has in her face how is she planning on smiling or frowning or acting for that matter. Has she not seen what happened to Meg Ryan.
leave me alone
is all mouth until the digging begins and you realize she is no better then any other hollywood actress.
you have too understand how the industry works-you either have or you don't. most don't and are bugging out all the time not realizing the other side of the acting world is using them.
she is not what we call true quality material...she bugs out and that is her first problem in the industry and noone will hire her. she needs to keep her big mouth reputation closed.
she is not nor will ever be quality tv..she may know few directors but in the end nothing is there but a vicious ice box person. she maybe feeling secure for the moment but that ends quickly when used by the industry.
you do not have to care what everyone thinks...but in order too keep a job like i have for may years you need too have the right tools and know how too use them properly. if you do not have the right personality you cannot survive in this industry.
she is not powerful other then knowing a few people does not make you powerful it causes a ton of hatred.
In hollywood we look for people who have the charm and personality and who are not bugging out....'
these problems are a huge risk in the acting business and we probably would not even look at her resume
knowing about her "reputation".
she is a risk and bugging out all the time. we could never put her in a high level acting position in hollywood..
plus she is officially hated.....she's a television risk.
megan is officially hated by everyone–what a shame–she needs to change her personality or nobody will hire her in the future, in my line of work she would be risk too us.
its well hated on this blog...so let it runs its course of being used by cnn...
since in the viewers eyes she is a cow a porn page was created by someone called happy cow 22 so that now proves too me the hacker is still on CNN-
was the last straw-
how was the jail did you see that movie that was a great movie.
how was the jail did you see that movie?
its amazing...you show up for 10 minutes and your blogging material all day long that is so weird.
Megan Fox as April O'Neal, that's a great call.
Michael Bay directing it and making the Ninja Turtle's from outer space, that needs to all go away.
TMNT... with lots of explosions? can't wait lol. Hopefully it won't be terrible. lol. One can only hope.
The good news is that she's in it. THe bad news is that Michael Bay is making it!!!! I can't even imagine TMNT with ^%^% blowing up all over the place. Kind of takes away from the story.
she looks good but would look even better with a few of my butt nuggets stuffed in her ears.
It's amazing how $$$ brings people back into the fold of the "family"! Hey, Techno Viking, my last name is Viking, are we related? If you have $$$ I'm in the fold! Lol!!
you won't be home until time for work tomorrow.
brian is still the only younger man i'd make the effort for....hey what can i say? truth!
he's the only younger man i'd do...
I still do Megan ,,, oh yea
do i want too be like Megan or have pride......Give me pride......
i will break the ice before we go into 666....its not going into 666....kapeesh
I HAD TOO LOOR A TOOL IN AND OF COURSE IT WORKED....XO K?
NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU .... DON'T BE AFRAID I LIKE RACE CARS TOO!
what are you talking about.
has a selfish agenda and could care less about anyone or the fans....brian austin green is much different...
he's popoular the fans want him and he is the popular ticket in hollywood -
Brian Austin Green is number 1 to the fans...Megan Fox is NOT a nice person end of story.
Amazing how he deals with this 24 hour a day spotlight...megan fox has huge issues and a lousy actress and Brian deal with this 24 hours a day...as a fan i am NOT angry its just that i'm not quite sure why....hey to each his own and a fan too brian forever
and a lousy actor and a crummy example to hollywood with a tooled addiction.....
2. mare-cookie delivery
go too bed already...
hES MENTAL TO CHANGE THE TMNT.IF HES SUCH A GREAT WRITER HED UNTOUCH IT,,,I m from the original era. I saw all 3 movies in the threatre. I will not see this unless its free, I just asked my 9 yr old son Ashton how the turtles came to be?? He replied ,, in the sewer,, in radioactive ooze. I told him not anymore,, there from space and not mutants now,,hes like thats dumb I dont want to see that.Just like how MB distroyed Transformers, goodbye turtles.This Director thinks hes so wonderful he can change an era. He Cant.
2. all is fine
3. nobody said anything
4 they are very nice and treat me well...
Just to make sure it'll suck let's ask Megan Fox to be in it.
To ensure that it doesn't suck, they should have Megan Fox suck the turtles.
If I were Fox, I'd view being cast in this rubbish as a sign Bay was still angry.
So, what, they're Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles now? TANT? Why, Michael, Why?
the raping of my childhood just doesnt stop,huh.
Thanks Bay,you frikin idiot
The turtles don't "mutate into warriors." They mutate from normal turtles into the larger sized turtles we've all come to recognize as the TMNT. They only become ninja warriors with Master Splinter's help and his teachings in the martial arts.
Which Ninja Turtle with Megan Fox be playing? I'm thinking maybe Rafael. It's too bad, really that she'll be buried under all that make up (or just a CGI character), and not showing off her wombly-womblies in a tight fitting, low-cut number (which is the ONLY reason to see Megan Fox in a movie!).
I think she's playing April O'Neal.
Can't wait to see her in a yellow jumpsuit
Hell is he talkin bout we need to chill?? Motherfudga how you just gon' change a storyline background about 4 of the most beloved characters of all time by an entire generation around the world and not expect an uproar?? Aliens?? The fudge?? SMDH... Now we gon' get a TMNT movie with exploding pizzas and some bullcrap about how they crash landed on earth and crap. AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!
Help fight this travesty! http://wh.gov/vmbd
Is she a lesbean? I don't think she is one but it doesn't hurt to ask. I think lesbeans are funny embiciles. They are very comedic.
Correction: "lesbian," "imbecile." Congrats on "comedic." That must have used up some brain cells.
It made my head hurt bad. I don't know if its thinking or sinuses. I'm gonna try not thinking so hard and see if that helps. Lesbeans are dumb.
it's friday. you shouldn't try to think so much with the weekend coming. take it easy and kill a few brain cells tonight and tomorrow.
Megan is not a great actress, but I've seen far worse. Kristen Stewart, Lindsey Lohan and Shia Labeouf just to name a few
I agree. She isn't pretty either. I think she may possibly be an embicile.
Agreed. Shia LaBeouf is a TERRIBLE actress.
She looks like she is sitting on a toilet in that picture. Gross.
even Megan Fox. she may poop more than most, though. I don't know. maybe we should ask her.
I hope someone will fling turd nuggets at her.
I'll be more than happy to volunteer for that duty!
Wow. This will cement her reputation as a legitimate actress once and for all.
This will be her 'Les Mislerables'
Any thoughts advice? thanks!
