Get Ready for Some Turtle Power with Megan Fox!

I was in middle school when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first broke out on the scene in the late-80’s. My younger cousins were really into the animated TV show. I remember everyone had the action figures and young boys would run around shouting “Heroes in a Half Shell!”

Well folks…Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael are back! And guess who is playing April O’Neil? It is none other than Megan Fox.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Characters Created by PETER LAIRD and KEVIN EASTMAN with a Screenplay by JOSH APPELBAUM & ANDRÉ NEMEC and EVAN DAUGHERTY, Producer MICHAEL BAY (the blockbuster Transformers franchise) and director JONATHAN LIEBESMAN (Wrath of the Titans) bring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the popular franchise that has captivated audiences of all ages for decades, into the 21st century.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Megan Fox and chat with her about being a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a child, her experiences on the TMNT movie and being a working mother. I can’t wait to share with you what we discussed, but you’ll have to check back at a later date for that article.

  1. My kids love TMNT because they still have cartoons of them… Crazy to hear them talk about the characters that I grew up loving. I don’t know why but Megan Fox seems like an odd choice to me. I guess I’ll have to watch and see what I think! :)

  2. I must have been hiding in a shell somewhere, because I didn’t realize Megan Fox was in the TMNT movie. I loved TMNT when I was younger.

  3. I remember loving the Nina Turtles when I was a kid. My girls haven’t said anything about wanting to see this one, but if they do, we are totally going!

  4. I wish they weren’t trying to reboot the original, the original was great! I’m interested in seeing her acting in this, lots of complaints out there about her being cast.

  5. I’m on the fence about whether or not I like her as April O’Neal. She seems like a great person but I grew up with the original Turtles so it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role.

  9. My son will want to see this. Although I am a little bit creeped out by the costumes – well the faces look a little weird. I do think it will be a great movie though

  12. I remember TNMT when I was a child. This is a total flashback to that. I’m willing to bet my husband will want to see this!

  13. I hate hate hate that they cast her. In transformers, all she did was stand around with her mouth hanging open. I have no doubt she’ll do the same thing here. Ugh. How about an unknown actress?!
