Bay is making a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie, and he announced on his blog Thursday (Feb. 21) that Fox will star in it. She’s likely to pay April O’Neil, a reporter and friend to Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo.
We’ll just let the idea of a Michael Bay “Ninja Turtles” movie sink in for a minute.
OK? OK. Fox starred in Bay’s first two “Transformers” movies, but the two had a falling out after she compared him to Hitler in a 2009 magazine interview, saying “He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality.”
Fox subsequently declined to return for (or was fired from, depending on whose opinion you ask) “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” Her recent credits include “This Is 40″ and “Friends With Kids.”
