ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The upcoming film "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is sure to be a hit with the fans of the comic book, television shows, and previous live action movies, and Megan Fox considers herself among them. The 28-year-old actress attended an event at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego Friday (July 24), and showed her love for the franchise to superfans eager to learn more about the upcoming film version. "I grew up a fan of the live action movies, and I was born in '86, I was sort of the prime age demographic for that, and I watched the cartoon also, so I obviously was familiar with who April was, but as you know, she's been slightly different in each manifestation, so we weren't exactly sure who she was going to be when I had my meeting, and that sort of developed afterwards, but I'm familiar, because I'm a fan guys. Come on," says Megan Fox. The film stars Fox as heroine April O'Neil who stumbles upon a group of four turtles who have been transformed to human-sized "mutant" ninjas through exposure to toxic waste. They are a force for good in New York City, where a crime wave is taking hold, part of a master plan by diabolical villain, Shredder. This version is the fifth feature film in the franchise, with the first film, released in 1990, becoming one of the highest grossing films of that year. "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" will release August 7th. The film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay.
