The latest incarnation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knows its audience pretty well.
They’ve cast Megan Fox as ace reporter/turtle buddy April O’Neil, marking the second time she’s sexed up an ‘80s franchise geared toward boys ― the first being Transformers, of course. Today Megan was photographed jumping on a trampoline on set ― and, really, could there be any more enticing combination for a certain generation of fanboys than a new TMNT and Megan Fox on a trampoline?
The answer is no.
Why is Megan Fox jumping on a trampoline? Is this some kind of stunt? “Who cares?” is the most likely response from TMNT fans who happen across these photos. As the saying goes, you don't look a gift horse in the mouth... nor do you look a gift "Megan Fox on a trampoline" in the [insert body part of choice here].
The newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie comes from Jonathan Liebesman, director of Battle Los Angeles and Wrath of the Titans, with lesser-known actors playing the titular turtles in motion capture performances. Will Arnett has also been cast, though his role has not been revealed.
Naturally, the movie is being produced by Michael Bay, who turned Megan Fox into an instant sex symbol with the first Transformers movie. He's hoping to recapture that fanboy magic and whoever thought up a scene in which Megan Fox must bounce on a trampoline should get a raise, since we know a certain demographic of men who were under 10 in the early '90s are just about the right age to appreciate such things.
The movie is set to be released in June of 2014. So this is all you get of Megan Fox on a trampoline for a whole year. Enjoy!
Do you think another Ninja Turtles movie can be a success?
