Asked about the casting of Megan Fox as April O’Neil in the upcoming “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot recently, the comic’s co-creator Peter Laird did not sound particularly happy:
“I think it is safe to say that there are probably hundreds of better choices for the role of April O’Neil. Of course, her name has promotional value, and maybe that’s what they want. Who knows? I can’t get myself too worked up about it.”
Laird has previously expressed disappointment with the selection of director Jonathan Liebesman. The Michael Bay-produced live action film is currently slated for Summer 2014.
