Leaked Ninja Turtles Script ‘Tired, Old News,’ Michael Bay Insists
Michael Bay wants Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans to know one thing: The widely panned script for the Ninja Turtles reboot that made the rounds earlier this month was a very early version. Several websites got their hands on the script, which depicted the Turtles as actually coming from Dimension X and being part of a prophecy. However, Bay wrote a quick post on his website clarifying that the draft was scrapped early in this process:
The leaked script for Ninja Turtles that different sites continue to comment on was written well before I, or anyone at Platinum Dunes, was involved with the project.
That script saw the shredder a long time ago.
This is tired, old news — Wait for the movie!
At this point, the question is how long fans will actually have to actually wait. The release of the film, which initially received criticism for dropping “Teenage” and “Mutant” from the title and for making the heroes aliens rather than mutants, has been pushed from 2013 to 2014.
