Less than a week after we, and numerous other multimedia outlets, revealed details of the leaked Ninja Turtles movie script, producer Michael Bay has commented on the subject.
He said 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!”.
However, despite this response numerous sites pointed out that Platinum Dunes got involved with the project in May of 2010 and the script was dated 1/30/12.
Responding to this situation, Bay again commented: “To end this stupid merry go round and explain the math…Yes we signed on two years ago to Turtles, but with no deal in place. Deal completed towards end of last year. And yes, thats how long deals sometimes take. So no work was done on the script. Blame Paramount, not us for the first draft.
The new Ninja Turtles movie is set for release on May 16, 2014.
