Megan Fox is now a redhead, and she’s got some giant turtles to thank for the makeover.
The 26-year-old Megan Fox turned redhead for her role in the upcoming Michael Bay movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, where she plays newspaper reporter April O’Neil.
Megan’s casting in the movie came as a bit of a surprise given her difficult past with Bay. The two got into a spat when Megan compared his directing style to Adolph Hitler.
But now Megan is on board, and the project is moving ahead quickly. This week producers confirmed that Will Arnett has joined the project, which is a live action/CGI hybrid. Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Noel Fisher, and Alan Ritchson have signed on to play the turtle heroes, and Bay has yet to cast the parts of Shredder, Splinter, and Casey Jones.
The movie has a tentative release date of June 6, 2014, but had originally been slated to come out a few weeks earlier. Paramount reportedly moved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so it would not come into competition with a Godzilla reboot released around the same time.
Outside of her work, the newly redhead Megan Fox said she’s ready for another big project — growing her family.
After giving birth to son Noah in September, Fox said that the validation she gets from being a mom is greater than anything Hollywood has ever given her. Megan also told Marie Claire UK that she’s very happy with husband Brian Austin Green and already looking to have more children.
“All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it,” Megan Fox said. “I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. That is where my heart is.”
