As if we didn’t already have enough to worry about regarding the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, it looks like Michael “The Baby Eater” Bay and his partner in crime Jonathan “Gimme Money” Liebesman will be making even more changes to world we love and remember. This time around, they’re taking a shot at the origins of the franchise’s most famous baddies, Shredder.
It’s pretty obvious that with the casting of William Fichtner in the role of Shredder that they’ve already decided to white-wash it and remove the villain’s Asian origins. But some further info. via the mouth of Fichtner himself suggests that even more is getting screwed around with:
I actually play a guy named Eric Sachs in the movie. And then he goes through a few stages in his existence.
There is a whole interesting dynamic that happens in the world of Turtles and all I can really say about it at this point while working on it is that the Turtle film, it’s not like anything that I remember about the Turtles before. I feel like this Michael Bay-produced movie is just gonna really be something else. I’m pretty excited.
Ah yes, not like any turtles that he remembers. I am so overjoyed I could shit my pants and roll around in it.
If you feel so inclined, check out the new incarnation when it bullies its way onto the big screen come June 6th, 2014.
Thanks to /film for the warning.
