We reported last month that Megan Fox is playing the female lead, although it still has not been confirmed if she is playing the intrepid reporter April O'Neil, or a different character.
Unlike the 1990 original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the actors portraying the title characters will use state-of-the-art performance capture technology similar to Avatar, instead of wearing bulky turtle suits.
Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans, Battle: Los Angeles) is directing from a screenplay by Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Matt Holloway, and Art Marcum. We reported in January that production will begin this April in New York City.
