Even though Michael Bay kicked the living mannequin Megan Fox off his Transformers set, it looks like all that drama is just water under the bridge. Bay has cast Fox to star as April O'Neil in his Alien Turtles movie (formerly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but then Bay cut the mutant and teenage parts from the script).

Bay announced the news on his personal website writing, "TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!"


The Jonathan Liebesman-directed film which was put on ice last summer, but seems to be back on track now.
The film, which allegedly stars Casey Jones and not the turtles, oof, is supposed to shoot this April with a release date on May 16, 2014. But this is one of the first times producer Bay has dropped the "TMNT" moniker so perhaps some changes have been made to the script? Here's hoping.
