LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Megan Fox, Michael Bay and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!?!? – Will there be pizza too?
The actress has apparently squashed her feud with the “Transformers” director and will reunite with him for the reboot of the classic comic/cartoon/movie about four mutated humanoid turtles (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael) skilled in martial arts – who (at least, in previous incarnations) also loved pizza and partying.
“TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!” Bay wrote on his website.
The director did not say what role the big screen bombshell would play, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, she will protray April O’Neil, the human pal of the turtles.
Fox and Bay reportedly reconciled over the course of numerous meetings and the actress was won over by director Jonathan Liebesman’s vision for the movie. Bay is producing the live-action CG hybrid reboot.
According to THR, a slew of mostly unknown actors are testing for the roles of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael, which will be motion-captured.
