After a very public falling out, Megan Fox and Michael Bay are back on good terms. The actress has been cast in Bay’s upcoming live-action, CGI hybrid Ninja Turtles, the producer announced via his official website Feb. 21. “TMNT: We are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!” he wrote.

Fox, 26, will play April O’Neil, the human friend of the Ninja Turtles. Bay will produce Ninja Turtles via his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form; Wrath of the Titans’ Jonathan Liebesman has been tapped to direct.

Fox appeared in Bay’s first two Transformers movies before he replaced her with model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the third installment, 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Fox famously trashed her role in the first film, telling Entertainment Weekly in 2009, “I’m terrible in it. It’s my first real movie and it’s not honest and not realistic. The movie wasn’t bad, I just wasn’t proud about what I did.”

The following year, she told Wonderland magazine that Bay, 48, is “like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So, he’s a nightmare to work for.”
