Whether we like it or not, these amazing set photos of Megan Fox jumping on a trampoline signify that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is coming and there is nothing we can do about it. Based on these images alone, it’s almost as if Megan Fox was born to play this role. Now that production is finally underway, after years of pre-production shenanigans, the road to the new TMNT will be quite the interesting journey. See the rest of the set photos of Megan Fox after the break.
Many people have already written off Megan Fox as April O’Neil, but I’d like to think we can give her a second chance. If Michael Bay can, why can’t we? Just look at how adorable she is jumping on that trampoline. She may not be wearing a yellow jumper or have auburn hair, but perhaps there is just something more we have yet to see from this young actress.
In the set photos below we can assume April O’Neil is on location reporting a story about exercise or something to that nature, most likely assigned for her looks, and like the original film, she probably is hoping for a big scoop to prove she is a true reporter. Will Arnett also appears in the set photos below as Vernon Fenwick, her cameraman but also rival reporter – not sure how that works. These images come courtesy of Screen Crush and Superhero Hype who were on the scene today during the shoot.

Platinum Dunes currently has five horror reboots under their belt. From The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to A Nightmare on Elm Street, they all have had mixed reviews, but have proven to be very stylish. Director Jonathan Liebesman has taken the reins of the TMNT reboot and all eyes will be watching his every move. His track record hasn’t been too hot (Wrath of the Titans; The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning; Battle: Los Angeles), but it’s never too late for a director to make his mark in Hollywood.
Alongside Megan Fox and Will Arnett will be Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, as well as Danny Woodburn as Master Splinter.
Will Liebesman be able to wrangle this ragtag group of actors to make a cohesively fun, live-action TMNT reboot?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is expected to release in 2014.
