Ninja Turtles reboot back from beneath the sewers: Megan Fox is the new April O'neil
|I guess Michael Bay and Megan Fox are back on |
|From beneath the Sewers to boldly go where noTurtle has gone before!|
When the idea of a TMNT reboot was rumored fans were pumped about the prospect of seeing their favorite boys in green portrayed in a very edgy Batman Begins like reboot closer to the origins of the original comic written and illustrated by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Then when it became known that Micheal Bay's production company Platinum Dunes would over see the film for Paramount it seemed to be all down the sewer drain from there. At this point two drafts of the script have leaked. One where Casey Jones is the main protagonist, and the turtles are basically glorified side characters, like the Transformers in those films as a Casey and April love story ensues. As well as another script where the turtles hailed from a part of Dimension X, and the famous four where simply a few of many turtles that made up an entire alien turtle race. The alien version of the script also reportedly included Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, and the character of Shredder remade into a Dimension X Colonel known as Schrader. That script for more than a few reasons caused some out of this world backlash from the TMNT fan-base.

|He may be in the family portrait, but does Michael Bay really understand TMNT's concept of family?|
|The current IDW TMNT comic would be the perfect framework for a new TMNT film! |
Sadly it doesn't look like Michael Bay and Paramount are going in that direction.
