“TMNT” Reboot Casts Female Lead

Just when we thought it was dead, Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is back.  And it’s found its April O’Neil.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Megan Fox has signed on for the role.

The news may come as a surprise to many since Fox had a famous and public feud and parting with Bay over the Transformers franchise.  Looks like the two have reconciled and will work together again.

Sources say Fox and Bay reconciled over a series of recent meetings and that one tete-a-tete that won her over was with director Jonathan Liebesman, who wowed her with the storyboards, according to insiders.

The movie is in the casting stage and last week was testing actors, mostly relative unknowns, for the roles of the Ninjas – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael – which will be motion-captured.
