Megan Fox reported for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" duty this weekend, making her debut as April O'Neil.

On Saturday, Fox was photographed on the "Ninja Turtles" set in Manhattan, according to Just Jared, giving fans a first look at her role in the upcoming flick. Instead of wearing O'Neil's quintessential yellow jumpsuit, Fox donned a burgundy hoodie, a gray tank top and a pair of tight jeans.


Back in February, it was announced that Fox would join the cast of "Ninja Turtles," produced by "Transformers" director Michael Bay. The casting came as a bit of a shock since the 26-year-old actress previously compared Bay to "Hitler" and said he was a "nightmare to work with."

The four turtles -- Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael -- will be played by newcomers Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher. Funnyman Will Arnett has also joined the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Although there have been rumors that Bay has envisioned his own version of the popular 1980s comic, Bay insists "Ninja Turtles" fans will be happy with the final product.

"There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens," he told MovieFone. "We’re not. It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie."

The rebooted "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is due in theaters June 6, 2014.
