Megan Fox will reunite with Michael Bay for 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles', the first time they have worked together since she accused him of being "like Hitler" on his film sets

Megan Fox will reunite with Michael Bay for 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'.

The director famously fell out with the star in 2010 after she compared him to Adolf Hitler following her appearance in 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'.

She was subsequently replaced in the third 'Transformers' movie by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but has now been welcomed back to the fold by Michael for his next project.

Writing on his website, he said: "TMNT: We are bringing Megan Fox back into the family."

Megan will play April O'Neil in the film, a TV reporter who is best friend to the sewer-dwelling ninjutsu expert turtles.

Sources say Megan and Michael - who is producing, but not directing 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' - reconciled over a series of recent meetings.

Megan was said to have been won over by director Jonathan Liebesman, who wowed her with the film's storyboards.

Megan has recently returned to acting after giving birth to her first son, Noah, with husband Brian Austin Green in September last year.

She originally fell out with Michael by saying he "wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So, he's a nightmare to work for."

After excluding her from 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' he admitted it was because of "the Hitler thing".

Visually distinctive reboot of the franchise chronicling the adventures of four late-adolescent, martial-arts-trained, pizza-addicted chelonians and their intrepid reporter pal (Fox). The CGI-enhanced turtles are an improvement on their cinematic predecessors, Fox is commendably committed and Arnett is enjoyable as her…
