Yep. Let that sink in. Michael Bay posted a short message on his website today:
“TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!
And now Variety has reported that the role she’ll be playing is none other than that of April O’Neil. Great. Just great. Megan Fox isn’t the worst actress out there. Let’s face it, we’re lucky we didn’t get stuck with Ms. No Emotions from Twilight but this still isn’t my ideal choice for one of the most important roles in the franchise. You’ll remember after HUGE fan backlash several months ago, the Ninja Turtles reboot was shelved because of “script problems” but things seem to be moving forward again after the holidays. I’m trying to reserve judgement until I see a finished film, but it was hard to resist that immense sigh of disappointment with this announcement.
