Cowabunga, dudes… Here’s some amazing news to brighten up your day.
First, let us ask the question: What’s the one thing that could possibly make the über-celebrated franchise Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cooler for fanboys? The answer, of course, is to add Megan Fox to the mix, duh...
On Thursday, Michael Bay, the man behind the forthcoming theatrical release of the TMNT series, announced that the silver-screen vixen is officially on board to star in the film.
His blog message, which caused a nerd-out explosion across the Internet forum population, was simple:
“TMNT: We Are Bringing Megan Fox Back Into The Family”
This is a solid attempt by Bay to appease fans after previously enraging them by hinting at an extraterrestrial addition to the film.
It's unlikely that Fox will smear on some green paint and start brandishing nunchucks for the role. It’s more relalistic—as followers of Bay’s blog have pointed out—that she'll embody the role of April O’Neil, the turtle's sexy news reporter sidekick.
This assumption has been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.
In addition to being the greatest news ever, this project update also sticks a fork in the two-year spat between Bay and Fox, which began when she likened the big budget feature king to Hitler.
Glad to see they’re playing nice again.
