Like booyakasha dude, we like totally need a great actress for our upcoming film, so that people can realize just how this film isn’t going to shell in a handbasket. OMG fellow shinobros! Why don’t we like get Megan Fox to be our plucky pal April O’Neil?
Dammit Michael Bay, I honestly love how you put a movie together on the visual side, but then you go and do something like this. Yes, the female Taylor Lautner is indeed going to be one of the main stars of the upcoming Ninja Turtles reboot, as explosion maestro and Ninja Turtles producer Michael Bay recently confirmed on his blog that the 1997-2004 Thumb War champion (citation needed) would be joining the cast:
TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!
For those of you unaware of who April O’ Neil is, she’s the plucky news reporter/antique store owner/varsity student/ lab assistant depending on various iterations of the franchise.Bay and Fox still had a falling out during the filming of Transformers 2, but it seems that things have been patched up since then, following this announcement.
While it’ll be Jonathan Liebesman calling the shots, this bit of casting news should confirm that the now delayed until May 2014 film is still on track. Ergh.
