Michael Bay and Megan Fox didn’t leave things on the best of terms when she left the Transformers series, as Fox publicly slammed Bay in an interview.
After Fox compared Bay to Hitler in an interview, Bay revealed Steven Spielberg forced him to fire her, eventually replacing her with Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley for the third installment of the franchise.
But they seemed to have mended their rift, as in a surprising post, Bay revealed Fox would be joining his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot.
Bay wrote, “We are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!” He will produce, while Jonathan Liebesman will direct, Variety reports.
Fox starred in the first two Transformers films alongside co-star Shia LeBeouf, released in 2007 and 2009. But her comments about Bay were deemed unprofessional and ultimately cost her her job.
"Michael wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and so he is. He's a nightmare to work for,” she told Wonderland magazine.
Bay later told GQ, “I'm sorry, Megan. I'm sorry I made you work twelve hours. I'm sorry that I'm making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy,” The Telegraph reports.
They have reportedly talked things through in a couple meetings, and have agreed to work together again.
