Michael Bay Comments On the Leaked Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Script
The saga of the heroes in a half shell’s big screen return thickens.
This past week, a negative review of the abandoned script for Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles surfaced HERE, which led to some comments by Bay himself.
Bay took to his website and stated:
“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!”
Yet, reports went on to say that Bay’s Platinum Dunes were signed on to the project back in May 2010, and the script that surfaced being dated 1/30/12. That led to another Bay comment, in which Bay stated:
“To end this stupid merry go round and explain the math…Yes we signed on two years ago to Turtles, but with no deal in place. Deal completed towards end of last year. And yes, thats how long deals sometimes take. So no work was done on the script. Blame Paramount, not us for the first draft.”
The film right now is slated to hit theaters on May 16th, 2014. Whether that date holds or not remains to be seen.
