With Jonathan Liebesman’s upcoming TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES already splitting opinion, the co-creator of the heroes-in-a-half-shell, Kevin Eastman, has been talking about how he has high hopes for the Michael Bay-produced movie.
Speaking to CBR, Eastman said, “It’s been a four, almost five-year journey to bring the next TURTLES movie to life since the time we pitched it. I know everybody is like, ‘Oh, Michael Bay, Michael Bay, Michael Bay, he’s gonna ruin it! He’s gonna destroy it!’ But everyone I have encountered has been nothing more than incredibly sincere to try and bring the Turtles back in a way that’s new, fresh and exciting, but with total respect to everything that’s come before.”
He continued, “I’ve read the script. I have a cameo in the movie. It’s awesome – really fun. What they’ve done with the film is going to make fans incredibly happy, including myself. The vision is awesome, the effects are incredible, and the story will be something everybody can relate to and like. I’ll leave it out there for the fans to let us know what they like in the end, but I’m very proud to be part of it. A lot of people are going to be surprised.”
Starring Johnny Knoxville, Tony Shalhoub, Megan Fox, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg and William Fichtner, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is released on 8th August.
