I know most of you will have seen the Brendan McCarthy concept art for Steve Barron's pitch for what would have been TMNT 4 but he's recently posted an image that I'd never seen.

EDIT

Sorry wrong board. Perhaps some kind mod can move it to the regular movie board.

Any scripts or a concrete pitch?

This looks interesting, I'm questioning why Splinter is even there. If only the 4th Movie had made it. It looks really cool. This also reminds me of concept art of Splinter from that Hallmark thing.

That's what you're looking at. In fact, it's the only concept art of Splinter for the film that's been posted online, to my knowledge.

That's interesting. Something obviously drove Splinter away. Maybe the turtles were exposed to the public somehow?

I remember seeing this once before. (Probably here?) Wish there were more images, and some context to them.

edit: I kinda like the art style. If only there was enough concept art to cover the story it would be cool to release it as a book.


My god they're wearing stuff. :trazz: Disguised or just cold?

Oh wow, never seen or was aware of this before. Love the art style. Just did a Google image search and found a few more Brendan McCarthy TMNT pics, from this "fourth movie".

Interesting to see that even back then they were thinking about adding accessories to the Turtles, like hats or tech for Donnie etc.

As much as Bay Turtles annoy me, it was a natural progression that was bound to happen one day (adding accessories). It's just Bay Turtles didn't do it in the RIGHT way...

Anyway, thanks for the share...again, love the art! Where can I find more?

Looks more like Splinter is dazed and confused after his ride has become detached and flown across the fair ground!

Okay, I know this might sound kind of weird, but am I the only one who's getting a somewhat depressing vibe from this?

Yeah, it does seem a bit depressing with Splinter and the run down amusement park. I sort of feel like Splinter may have been lost somewhere with amnesia to who he is.

Agreed. It looks like Splinter has Alzheimer's or dementia or something...

I wish I could say there was ever a shred for a TMNT 4 movie out there that actually looked or sounded remotely good. Sadly, just the Fusco draft that was stillborn seems to be anything resembling "good," and that's only based on Eastman saying how it was the best thing ever (which is different from how he describes any new TMNT project in no way).

That's probably the most miserable looking Splinter that's ever beheld the world, and it is glorious.

More story told in one panel than in both bayturtle disasters.

This, is concept art.

That one was going to have splinter with a monstrous secondary mutation right? Probably something to do with that.

That looks more like Salacious Crumb than Splinter to me...

That was harsh - I can see what you mean, but no...
clearly, this is meant to tell a story point, not convey design.

I know, I know...

But that's what I see, man. It's been bugging me but I finally figured it out. He drew Splinter like Salacious Crumb.

I wouldn't say good, but one of the TMNT-4 scripts had the possibility to have been... maybe/possibly decent. Easily second best, including 2007 and PD. Not exactly a high bar, I know. There were some interesting ideas.

No, that was from an earlier TMNT 4 attempt in the mid-90s. This art is from the circa-2000 Steve Barron Hallmark miniseries that almost got off of the ground.

Funny enough, Brendan McCarthy also storyboarded the original Barron TMNT movie.

Expect the drome to go full martial law if that happens, with government agents making accounts to get info. We might even be labeled a terrorist group by news outlets if we're lucky.

I'm gonna go stand over there, pretend I don't know any of you guys, and try to not look like a Ruskie sympathizer. :teek:

If it's as cool as I've heard it is, someone at Nick should really leak the Fusco script. Hell, if not for the good of the franchise. Internet reaction to a really good, kickass TMNT script that was tossed aside would be huge. Surely some Paramount exec would notice. :lol:

I know you're holding out on me... you have scripts....I know you have scripts :P

INT. APARTMENT - NIGHT

The hero of our story is lounged back in his favorite chair, clacking away on his Macbook's keyboard. D_Osborn casually glances up at the camera-- shattering the fourth wall and addressing our audience.

Not that damn Fusco script!

FADE TO BLACK

Actually, all joking aside, leaking a GOOD Ninja Turtles movie script very well MIGHT do very good things for us all.

Exhibit A... Deadpool.
