Whether it be positive support or negative criticism there has been a lot of talk about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is finally going to hit the big screen later in the year. We have already seen plenty of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pictures, posters, videos and trailers and the anticipation is continuing to grow as we get ever closer to that big release date.
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will see Megan Fox playing the role of April O'Neil and the actress has been speaking about the movie and the history behind the characters. Megan says that she has always been a very big fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, even going as far as to admit that she once had a crush on Michelangelo.
Fox was chatting to MTV when she explained, "They were my favorite movies as a kid. That was my thing. Way, way more so than Star Wars or in later years, still more than Lord of the Rings. It was always Ninja Turtles. My first crush, and everyone thinks this is really weird, but little girls have crushes on animated characters, and my first crush was Michelangelo. So I’m super excited."
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman from a screenplay which has been worked on by Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec and Evan Daugherty, with Michael Bay as producer on the film. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will open on August 8 in the US, before then hitting the big screen in the UK on October 17.
