    Hey guys, want to read the script for the canceled Michael Bay TMNT film?
    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B22ZbuTtrOA3aDdpWFhUNGRacWs/view?pli=1&sle=true#

    It’s fucking awful. So glad this never got made.

    Is this authentic? That’s…bad. And from the script it seems like it’d be three hours long. Reads like it can’t decide between the over-dramatic plot-hole-ridden Dark Knight Rises, Special effects over-saturation spectacle of Transformers, and the campyness of the 80’s TMNT cartoon show, so he decides to go with all three, blended badly.

    Even though it’s not being made now I really, really hope this script turns out to be a fake. Michael Bay’s never been amongst my favourite filmmakers, but this just takes the cake. If this turns out to be real I don’t think I could honestly bring myself to watch any of his films again, and that’s just from skim-reading it. I may try to read the full thing one day, but I fear it may destroy me.

    I didn’t get very far in reading that before it started pissing me off… “Colonel Shrader” was strike number one, and Casey/April having been school/classmates was number 2 and 3.

    Almost makes me wonder how this hack keeps getting work. Then I remember that the sheeple like big explosions, lens flares, shakycams, and shots that don’t stay still for more than a quarter second. (Not to mention filling the ‘plot’ with TnA, racist stereotypes, and wacky side characters)

    Peter Laird’s comments:
    “Someone else alerted me to the existence of this script, and I just a few minutes ago finished reading it. If it is, in fact, the actual draft that was rejected and caused the production of the next TMNT movie to be pushed back to 2014 because the script was unsatisfactory, then I think all true TMNT fans should be grateful to the new “powers that be” that they did not allow this wretched thing to go any further. It could definitely be taken as a good sign if that is the case.

    It reminds me of one of the reasons I am glad to not own the property anymore… because I don’t have to tear what little hair I have left out while trying to fix junk like this. — PL”

    So I have a question. (This is in no way a defense for the film) I am looking at IMDB and some other things I can access since I have a pro account. But here is a list of things on the Ninja Turtles movie that is set for release in 2014

    Michael Bay – Producer
    Jonathan Liebesman – Director
    Josh Appelbaum – Screenplay
    André Nemec – Screenplay

    Now I point this out so I can point out the following with Transformers

    Michael Bay directed all three
    Steven Spielberg among a list of many was a producer on all three Transformers films
    Roberto Orci – Screenplay Transformers 1
    Alex Kurtzman – Screenplay Transformers 1
    Ehren Kruger – Screenplay Transformers 2 and 3
    Roberto Orci – Screenplay Transformers 2

    SO i point out all of this to say that if you blame Michael Bay and Micheal Bay only for Ninja Turtles then you need to blame all of the producers for Transformers since I guess in your opinions the producers are the only ones at fault. I think you all just have a nerd rage towards bay that you guys don’t think at all about who is really at fault. Bay didn’t write that script blame those douche nozzles above. Hell in interviews Spielberg talked about how it was his idea to make Shia LeBouf such a main focus of the movie. So yeah I have always thought the nerd community has given way to much hate towards the man for the supposed rape of their childhood. As I said to Ark the other day “Your childhood was raped as you were a child” I said this after I watched Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers again and couldn’t watch it past the first 5 minutes, and Gen 1 Transformers is a joke. Alright my rant is over the script still sucked and I think the change of the Turtles origins is a bad idea.

    He touched my balls alot.

    You are right that there are others to blame, sure but everything you read is Michael Bay is making the film, Michael Bay is telling fans to calm down, Michael Bay, Michael Bay, Michael Bay. His crimes against film are much more vast then supposed “raping of Childhoods”. His film company for example, is remaking horror films from the 70’s and 80’s and they are even more horrible then those films where in the first place. Anyone who works on these films is just as guilty but Bay is the face man. He’s the one up front so he gets the brunt of the attacks.

    I would also like to point out that people getting pissed about remakes is a much broader movement than pissing on Michael Bay, look at the recent Total Recall movie. It is a real problem that main stream Hollywood seems to be nothing more then a low class knock off machine now. No original ideas or intelligent implementation of proven ideas, just cheap knock offs like they aren’t even trying anymore. I know I said I hate Micheal Bay earlier in this thread, but you know who I really hate is the mass of mindless mouth breathers who don’t mind blowing 12 bucks to go to the theater to see this shit over and over again. If no one went then they would be forced to change. That unfortunately will always be the case and the quality of movies will continue to spiral down the shit hole, the same is true with Television. Mass Media today, with few exceptions is crap, and that ladies and gentlemen is my opinion on the matter.
