Megan Fox is on board to play reporter April O’Neil, with other names attached to the project including Arrested Development actor Will Arnett and William Fichtner as Shredder. The film, which is directed by Wrath Of The Titans‘ Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Transformers mastermind Michael Bay, will see the popular crime-fighting team embark on their first big-screen outing since 2007’s CGI-animated TMNT.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise was hugely popular in the ’80s and ’90s and, in addition to spawning a TV series, also produced a trilogy of films with 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Secret Of The Ooze and 1997’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III.
