Fox is set to play April O’Neil, the woman who befriends the Ninja Turtles and ultimately joins them in their crime-fighting missions. Bay confirmed the news on the website.
“TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!” he wrote.
Bay and Fox reportedly sat down for a series of meetings to see if they could put the past behind them. Fox was eventually won over by the film’s director Jonathan Liebesman and his storyboards. Bay is serving as producer for the part live-action and part CG film for Paramount.
The rest of the cast is still undecided. Reports say they are currently in the casting stage, testing mostly unknown actors for the roles of the Ninja Turtles — Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael.
