Here's Megan Fox as April O'Neil on the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Set

When you watched the original "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" way back when — and we're talkin' the cartoons, not whatever was happening in '07 — did you see the redheaded reporter April O'Neil as attractive in any way?

There's a whole forum dedicated to this very issue, but for kids growing up with this generation's movie version of those turtles on the half-shell the question is kinda null because all they'll see is Megan Fox in the role.

Yep, the "Transformers" star has rekindled her love-hate relationship with Michael Bay for his live-action take on the sewer hero quartet, and as you see in this photo of her on the New York set of the film Monday, she looks pretty camera ready wielding her little mic and press pass in-costume (even if her hair is only reddish) which, wisely, is not an unflattering yellow jumpsuit.

William Fichtner to Make 'Ninja Turtle' Soup as Shredder

Fichtner, who also plays main bad guy Butch Cavendish in next month's "The Lone Ranger," has revealed to Huffington Post that he's going to lead the Foot Clan as Shredder in Paramount's big-budget reboot of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," currently shooting in New York. Get More »

A Michael Bay-produced live-action "Ninja Turtles" movie is coming into actualized reality, and there's nothing we can do to stop it short of a PETA representative finding out actual turtles are being molested on-set.

Given that, the film's cast is shaping up, with a new addition in the form of our favorite "Arrested Development" magician, Will Arnett, who The Hollywood Reporter says is signed for an unspecified lead role in Paramount's big budget "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." Get More »

'Ninja Turtles' Has All Its Turtles Cast

They're mean, they're green — and according to Deadline, they're almost totally anonymous, as four relative unknowns have just been cast to play Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot.

But since "Ninja Turtles" is going to be an "Avatar"-style motion capture CGI extravaganza, does it even matter who plays the turtles?

Fans of "The Hobbit's" motion capture icon Andy Serkis would, of course, argue that the people behind the animation are very important. So for those folks, here's a rundown of the turtles: Alan Ritchson (left), who will be playing Gloss in the upcoming blockbuster "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," is set to portray Raphael, while "The Twilight Saga" bit player Noel Fisher will suit up as Michelangelo. "Parks and Recreation" guest star Pete Ploszek will be Leonardo and newcomer Jeremy Howard will be playing Donatello. Get More »

REALLY? 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Combat Another Delay

New Line New Line

Despite releasing "Pain & Gain" later this year, producer Michael Bay has so far inflicted much pain and very little gain upon hapless "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" fans.

First the uproar over the turtles being aliens, then word that the script was shite, followed by interminable delays, and now The Hollywood Reporter says the new live-action/CGI hybrid film has been delayed yet again to June 6, 2014. Get More »

WTF: Megan Fox To Appear in [Michael Bay's] 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

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." Get More »

TMNT Co-Creator Backs Michael Bay's Plan for Alien Turtles

Warner Bros.

Who knew that people still felt so strongly about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, other than Vanilla Ice?

Michael Bay tried to tell the Internerds to chill the eff out earlier this week after news broke that he was planning a reboot where our pizza-snarfing stars are aliens rather than little turtles that encountered some gnarly goo that transformed them. Now Peter Laird, who created the comic book stars along with writer/artist Kevin Eastman, has spoken up on Bay's behalf. Get More »
