So, it's not weird that Hollywood wants to revive this tried-and-true "Turtles" franchise with a live-action reboot. And it's not weird that director Michael Bay wants a hot piece of… actress… to play the female lead. It is weird, however, that he would pick for that role a star with whom he had a very public, very aggressive feud just a short while ago. Yes, we're talking about new mama Megan Fox.
That's right, Fox will play the iconic April O'Neil in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, Ropes of Silicon reports.
Fox sizzled her way across the screen in Bay's "Transformers" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." But then something happened—and by something we mean she compared the director to Adolph Hitler, saying he was "a nightmare to work for" and that he had "no social skills at all." Bay blasted back, accusing Fox of being "in a different world… on her BlackBerry" and replacing her with Rosie Huntington-Whitely for "Transformers: Dark of the Moon."
We don't know what actually went down (they might not even know either), but somehow, some way, these two power players have rekindled their
romance working relationship. Not only that, but apparently Fox beat out Jane Levy ("Evil Dead"), Elizabeth Olsen ("Martha Marcy May Marlene") and Anna Kendrick (who was nominated for an Oscar for "Up in the Air") for the part. News broke when Bay posted a short blurb on his website that announced, "TMNT: We are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!" A very dysfunctional family, that is.
