I guess Michael Bay and Megan Fox sorted out they’re shit, because she has just been cast as April O’Neil in Ninja Turtles. Bay is only producing, so they won’t have nearly as much interaction as they did on the Transformers films.
Here’s my question: What does Fox’s being cast tell you about this film?
I’ll try to be gentle, so let’s just say while Fox is fun to look at, I’m not a huge fan of her acting ability. I mean, didn’t she get the part in Transformers because Bay thought she had a nice stomach?
Other actresses up for the role were Jane Levy, Anna Kendrick and Elizabeth Olsen. Personally I would have liked for Gemma Arterton to be cast, but no one ever listens to me.
On the upside, we’ll get to see Fox as a redhead.
Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans, Battle: Los Angeles) is directing with Bay producing through hi Platinum Dunes.
