    So are they going with alien turtles, or not?

    Either way, I'm expecting this to be a retread of elements and stylings from Bayformers, and Fox's casting further confirms that.

    I guess it was too much for me to expect Bay to respect the Ninja Turtles.

    He didn't respect the Transformers, what makes you think he'd respect the Turtles?

    As I said in the April thread, this is a clear indication of the direction this film is going to take. I for one officially have zero expectations for this film.

    What makes things worse is that we've had 4 turtles films in 25 years and not one of them is good. I can give a pass to the very first one though because I loved it to death as a kid and still do from a nostalgic perspective, but objectively it's not a very good movie, it's this weird mash up of the cartoon and the original comic.

    I think the first one is one of the best CB films ever and is pretty faithful to the characters. If this new film were at that quality, I'd be happy.

    Let's hope they cast good for Master Splinter and Shredder.

    With the new casting I'm really worried if they are still going ahead with that moronic script and how the turtles will act.

    Jesus I just had a vision of splinter acting like Micky Rooney from breakfast at tiffenys

    I think Bay needs to bluntly say that this film will not feature the original 'alien origins' and will be called 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'. It looks like they've gone through a number of rewrites since last year.

    What's baffling about that leaked script is that the writers are actually very talented, capable people. Let's hope that this time around, this latest script shows their true nature.

    It feels like Avatar all over again. Paramount just doesn't care to make fans happy even a little bit, I guess.

    Shredder is the key to this film he needs to be either a big name actor or one of the best actors out.

    I don't know if they'll keep Krang and the his invasion. If they keep it basic, I really think the Turtles need to battle more than Shredder and the Foot. Maybe it's best to introduce the Mousers and Baxter Stockman too.

    Otherwise, Shredder on his own would be fine, but he's border lining Lex Luthor with the TMNT film world. It's time to see new enemies from the comics or show(s). Leatherhead, Rocksteady and Bebop, etc.

    this news with Fox makes no sense. there is no way that she is the cheapest. they could find someone who is cheaper, attractive and has a least 5 years of acting experience.

    this has to be about sex with Bay. there is no other explanation.

    Shredder better be Ken Watanabe at this point, man. And even then, we all know that's not gonna happen.

    Maybe Bay will bring on Shia Lebeouf.
