Megan Fox has been cast in Paramount’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ reboot. Jonathan Liebesman will direct with Michael Bay producing. Original 1984 Mirage Studios’ comicbook ‘TMNT’ centered on four turtles who are turned humanoid through contact with radioactive slime, and trained in martial arts by their humanoid rat master.
Bay stirred controversy with fans of the comicbook-based franchise when he said the reimagined series would have alien elements. The reason for the original delay was because the filmmakers and studio felt they wouldn’t be ready for a October 2012 shoot date.
