Megan Fox Is the New April O'Neil

That headline is not a metaphor. Michael Bay's favorite bombshell, Megan Fox, will play sexy reporter April O'Neil in Paramount's reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. As Variety's Justin Kroll reported on Thursday night. "Jonathan Liebesman will direct with Michael Bay producing through his Platinum Dunes banner. Michael Bay tweeted the news on his blog." Which is a funny way of putting it since Bay doesn't have a Twitter account, and one typically does not "tweet on his blog." We assume Variety is referring to this post on Michael Bay Dot Com, the explosion-loving director's official website. In Bay's words, "TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!"

The movie is slated to hit theaters some time this holiday season. Now that Fox is on board, the next step is to start finding the male lead(s) and actually start making the dang thing. Can't wait to see who plays Shredder.
