Thread: Ninja Turtles Script

  1. #1

    Default Ninja Turtles Script

    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!

    That's the right thing to do. But these "fans" can't just sit back and wait. If they don't bitch and whine they'll probably cease to exist. It's sad that so many people thrive on hatred and post negative stuff all the time.

    Truly sad. I don't even know why you explain stuff to them, Michael. They don't deserve it.

    I knew it. There's no way a script that ridiculous would have made it through.

    And now suddenly no one is quoting Michael on this. Obviously I have to write the article at CBM.

    This is good news obviously,

    But for some reason I think don't think this important bit of news will be reported on as much as the script leak was.

    After all, this is Michael Bay we're talking about. Lord forbid he actually does this movie justice for the fans. They haters don't want that.

    They may even go so far as to say he's lying.

    I really hope the haters relax now.

    Plus I always felt Michael and co were good at keeping things under wraps.

    Thanks for letting us know that it's canned...However, We both know it was announced that Bay and PD got hired in late 2010 by Paramount. Then remember that on of the earliest writers to get attached after this was Marcum and Holloway while Applebaum and Nemec were only attached since late 2011 and the date ON THE SCRIPT is January 2012 lol.

    Reference points:

    Paramount and Viacom gets the rights to TMNT in 2009: http://www.deadline.com/2009/10/nick...ights-for-60m/

    Platinum Dunes gets attached in late 2010: http://www.deadline.com/2010/05/plat...tles-relaunch/


    First set of Writers are hired: http://www.deadline.com/2010/08/para...big-franchise/

    Applebaum and Nemec are hired: http://www.deadline.com/2011/06/para...ninja-turtles/

    Also y'all should remember prior to it's time at Paramount the last writer mentioned to be attached was John Fusco.

    I don't do this to disrespect Bay because I'm glad he addressed this but not EVERYTHING he says is true.

    Is this a courtroom? No.

    Are you a DA? No.

    Are we talking about a brutal crime or a terrorist attack? No.


    We are talking about a movie about fighting turtles. So let's not blow this thing out of proportion. Judging by the way the Turtles fans have treated Bay I'm surprised that he's not posting only lies just to have fun with these people. Because after the nasty stuff they've said, they certainly don't deserve a serious response from Bay.

    Bottom line - he said the script these fanboys whined about doesn't exist anymore. That's all you need to know.

    Move on.

    1. Thats why I said this:

    2. I never said I took it THAT seriously but I'm just pointing out that people here shouldn't take his "explanations" as gospel like some are here.

    I'm pretty sure the folks here are smart enough to make up their own minds.

    But that depends on how closely they were watching the production of this prior to the "Turtlegate" fiasco and has nothing to do with their IQ.

    Everything you know about the production is coming from articles on the web that are accessible to all people. A person needs Google and 10 minutes and he'll know everything he needs to know about this project.

    Also, my comment was not about IQ and I would ask you to not derail this thread by talking about the members here and what they know and don't know. Thank you.

    Im not trying to do that, I'm saying that whether or not they were up to speed on everything regarding this film has nothing to do with how smart they are....All I'm saying.

    Of course, that goes without saying.

    The only thing Bay has ever lied about were plot points, which was merely for the purpose of keeping the plot a secret for as long as possible. The best example of this I remember was whether or not Megatron was coming back in ROTF. Bay originally said no, then said he would appear in flashback, and so on. Then the trailers came. This is why I think the whole "alien" thing is still suspect.

    As far as this script issue goes, I say his word is 100% true on this one. It has more to do with actual things going on with the production and just plain fact checking rather than the plot itself. This also isn't the first leaked script controversy we've seen on here.

    So are the people who wrote the script still working on the film?

    The way you're talking right now, you don't seem any better than they are.

I sound like that, cause i was replying to some of them and was heated, then i came on here, and saw this post.

    Saying shit like "how i wish there was a hater convention and someone would just lock the doors and blow the place up" sets a bad example for yourself and your fellow Bay/TF fans. That's exactly the kind of tone the batshit crazy haters use. You're better than that, show some class.

    I can't believe folks here get worked up over haters getting worked up over this movie. It's a work of fiction, guys. I take political science courses in college, and I think it would be really silly if we suddenly stopped discussing real world issues that actually matter and started debating the sanctity of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Imagine if the friggen' presidential candidates' platforms included what the hell we should do about the TMNT reboot. (Come to think of it, maybe that will get more young people to vote, hmmm.)

    It seems like folks from both sides can't help but talk about this movie without having a coronary.

    I can't accept change. It's just that this script is Ninja Turtles in name only. You could change all the characters names and noone would even realize it was a Ninja Turtles script in the first place.

    The script may have been tossed out, but what I'm wondering is, how many ideas were kept from it? After all, Joel Schumacher's initial follow-up to Batman & Robin included the Scarecrow as the villain, and while that film may not have been made, Batman Begins did use the Scarecrow as one of the three villains of the film. There were several versions of the "Batman origin film" tossed around before Batman Begins was made, one of which had Bruce Wayne on the opposite side of the economy and working in a garage for a guy named "Big Al" or something. That film wasn't made either, but they still ended up making a film about Batman's origins.

    I'm aware that it's not quite the same, I'm just saying that until we see the movie, we're not going to know what's been left in and what's been tossed out. For all we know, some of the ridiculous stuff like the alien Turtle Warriors or the Colonel Schrader stuff, could still be there. I'll certainly try to give Bay and co the benefit of the doubt until then.
