From Transformers to Turtles
Candelabras not invited. Speaking of the absurdities of filmmaking...
Check out Megan Fox yesterday in New York shooting Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with co-star Alan Ritchmon. As you can see, he's wearing the framework of a turtle shell on his back. And then they'll add the rest in post. Which doesn't make it any less ridiculous. What's most ridiculous is that there can be 3 of these -- come on, two sequels at least, right? -- but no movies that are "too gay".
As for Megan Fox and her return to Michael Bay Productions -- I can't hate or snark on Fox for this, especially since it wasn't likely that she had any other options. And the way it was presented to her probably doesn't suck: work for 2 or 3 months on a movie, not work for 9 months and spend time with your kid, promote it for a few weeks, make a lot of money, go back to make more of them, repeat for the next 5 years.
