Screenwriter Discusses New TMNT Movie

Leonardo

 

The first official trailer for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie reboot dropped this morning, to the concern of many long time fans. Since its original announcement, many have been against the idea of the film; from the realization the Micheal Bay (Bad Boys, Transformers) was producing and the rumor of the turtles being aliens, it’s safe to say fans were extremely unhappy.

The new trailer, which offers a glimpse of the heroes in a half shell’s new design and strongly implies that their nemesis, Shredder (William Fichtner) had a hand in their creation has added more fuel to the fire. Now in an interview with Coming Soon, one of the film’s screenwriters, Andre Nemec offers some insight on what fans can expect of the upcoming film. In relation to the darker tone present in the trailer:

“Tone was a very interesting question on this movie as far as how dark we really wanted to go. It’s really all in the conflict between the characters. That was the driving principle. The color palettes that were chosen were not designed to be ‘Dark Knight’-ish in that regard. We weren’t looking to make that movie. I’m a huge fan of that movie, but I didn’t eat gobs of popcorn while I was watching that movie. We certainly didn’t want kids to be running for the exits. ‘Mommy! Why did he do that?!’ We weren’t looking for that. We really wanted to entertain and have fun with it. I think we skate — we live — on a very fun line in this movie, whether it’s the action feeling real and exciting, but also fun and adventurous. It really never feels dark in a way that would startle you out of your chair or make you fearful.”

Nemec explains Bay’s role/influence on the film, something that is a major concern for die hard fans.

“Michael has been an influence on the movie and he’s certainly been giving his notes and paying attention to the movie as we go through. There are Michael Bay aesthetics. He has a very good sense of action. He has a very good sense of entertainment. I think that, on those influences, you’ll feel Michael Bay’s hand.”

Micheal Bay’s movies are usually, if not always criticized for their plots and over the top vulgar humor but also deliver exciting action sequences. If his influence is mainly in that department then maybe fans can worry a little less.

Michelangelo being as goofy as always.

Another complaint many have regarding the reboot, is the casting of actress Megan Fox (Jennifer’s Body) as news reporter April O’Neil. Andre gives his take on this casting choice.

“[Megan] just brought a great energy to playing that character. The traditional April that we all know is a girl who is out to prove something. She’s out to make her bones. She’s living in the real world and fighting to get on top. Megan really brought that to playing the character. She does a really terrific job in the movie. She’s a terrific April O’Neil.”

I doubt this will change anyone’s mind, but maybe just maybe there is a chance Fox can do the character justice.

Fox as O’Neil.

Andre also addressed the rumors about the Turtles alien origins and other plot details.

“You’ve got to own your own version of what these stories are. Looking through the different iterations of Turtles to date, many of them have different origin stories. T.C.R.I. was a collection container that was used for a company that came from alien ooze at one point. There was another version of the ooze where it was created in a laboratory. There’s the “Daredevil” component that mixes in with the Turtle canon. There’s the sewers. There’s the laboratories. For us, it was important to find our own version of how these particular Turtles came to be so that they can stand alone as their own characters. There’s also the version where, if you touch something after you touch the ooze, that’s what you become. There have been a million versions. In this version we just thought it was important to create our own origin that lives within the balance of it. We didn’t do anything overtly kooky”

“You’re looking at the half of us who does not go on the internet. I don’t Google Alert myself to things as they come out. The only thing I really remember is the innuendo that was out there a year ago or so about the alien craze. I remember that sort of being just rumor and innuendo. I think this is a fun movie. I really do. Not just because I wrote it. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised when they come to this movie. I don’t think there are a lot of stones to throw at the movie from the fans as far as, “You didn’t do…” or “How come…?” We really play fair with the audience and with the fans. I think the movie is going to be fun ride for everyone.”

Hopefully it turns out to be a fun movie. The trailer certainly looks interesting, check it out below and let us know your thoughts. Are you even more or less excited for TMNT?

TMNT: Turtles Out of the Shadows Announced for XBLA, PSN, and PC

Activision has announced a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles title for the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC platforms featuring what is being called a whole new level of 3D and if this screenshot is any indication of that 3D then the renders in-game should be pretty good. Of course this shot probably comes from a hardcore studio machine that the game is being developed on, rather than the machines we will be playing it on. Out of the Shadows will focus on four-player online co-op so start forming your crew now.
