Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles script reveals Colonel Schrader? Not Shredder?Posted 10:51 am on Monday, August 27th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
I’m hoping that this script leak is false, but if it’s true, may god help us all. It’s a good thing that production has stopped for the time being. The site “TMNT, not TANT” has gotten their hands on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles script. We’re not sure if it’s really legit, but the script will make you want to beat your head to the wall, repeatedly.
Michael Bay is always trying to shift focus from the nonhuman characters to the human ones. In the script, it seems like Casey Jones is getting a major lead role while the turtles are taking the backseat (Transformers, anyone?) and are treated like children (Yes, i know they’re teenagers).
The biggest sacrilege is that the Shredder is now named Colonel Schrader. Schrader? WTF!? Instead of a leader of the Foot clan, he’s now a non-Japanese dude who controls a military group.
Later we find out that the turtles are indeed aliens. This happens when they travel into another dimension with other turtle warriors.
Okay, Michael Bay, you had your fun. Now please, stop! Just stop.
