Good, let that be inspiration to PD to treat people better. It's not like they were busting their asses less than anyone else. Cripe, it would not even BE a TMNT film without the guys who play them.

If anything. They will want to avoid another Sonic Movie situation and make sure to do things right. They know now that. If the fans don't like the designs. They are going to have to go back and redesign the Turtles.

Design changes wouldn't have saved these horrible things... but it would have helped.

People also wrote an article about Alan Ritchson's comments. It also said this.

Uh-oh. If it keeps spreading it might not be long before PD needs to comment. Or will they avoid acknowledging it like a plague.

To be honest, studios have always treated actors as expendable. Just look what Marvel did with Terrence Howard and Edward Norton. And these actors can bad mouth all they want, because there are probably another 1000 actors that are desperate for work and will take the gig just so they can pay the rent and put food on the table.

And at least Platinum Dunes is somewhat keeping the Turtles the same. Another production unit might be wanting to make them all girls like they did with the Ghostbusters or the new James Bond. But with that aside, I still didn't care for the first movie, so never bothered with the second. The story was crap, the shots were horrible and there was just not enough down time with the Turtles, and that is what makes them so endearing. Not the fights, but the brotherhood, and the movie was missing that. But we knew the Turtles would be used sparingly because CGI motion capture is expensive.

Well there's a name I haven't seen in a long while, how it going?

That really stinks if ill treatment is that common. No wonder unions/guild are a thing. And I guess getting those four for the TMNT who were lesser knowns is just prime meat for treating as poorly as possible.

Where the brotherhood is concerned, you may like the second film better. It's why I like that one more than the first, though the allover story still sucks. The Turtles' presence, interactions and screen time were better though at least.

Getting lesser known actors also means they don't have to pay them too much money. I'm sure Megan Fox and Will Arnett got more money then they did because they are well known.

Silver lining: Had the movie been great, this news would really suck to hear.

Even if they hire new actors for the Turtles. They will probably get the same kind of treatment that these actors went through.

Even bad studios have to try some different methods after repeated failure. WB shifted course with DC. Transformers didn't shift course because their poor work was successful.

Platinum Dunes TMNT films were poor, yes. But they didn't make a ton of money. The hope is that the studio won't make those same mistakes. We can hope for them to make some brand new mistakes.
Having only three ninja turtles to save on money. All-female TMNT. TMNT with laser-beam eyes (I could accept this). That sort of thing.

But realistically, I do have hope that the next film will be better than these last two, and that at least makes me very curious.

Female android Turtles with laser beam eyes. Probably also aliens.

The mistakes is having the same people who produce the last two doing the reboot. The movie needs people who understand TMNT.

Even if they hire a new director for it. They tend to hire directors who does what they are told.

If you look at the 2014 and 2016 movies. Both had different directors. But the tones were the same. and this is in part of the producers and Michael Bay's meddling with the production.

At least with the supposed next film they had the "bright idea" of hiring new people to write for it, as they should have done with the last film.

Though once again, just like the directors, it's people with few credits to their names... I mean, no offense to them, I know a relative newbie could also be very talented and hopefully they are with this particular area of film, but even still it just seems odd that PD doesn't seem too capable of getting people with longer resumes. Do they suck so much that proven people just don't want to work with them, or are they cheapskates and hire whoever they can get at the lowest cost and in need of more projects to their name?

Can't forget the aliens. Although, the further I get from the concept, the less it bugs me. They essentially are aliens. But that "planet of turtles" idea makes me shudder.

Tigerclaw...
Fair points.

It's because they want puppet writers/directors to just execute the will of the studio and Playmates.

They tend to hire Directors that made small movies that had a niche audience. and these Directors are more then happy to make the movie for the studios.

And some of these Directors don't have a clear vision of what the movie should be. Because its the Studios that are giving them there vision.

We need a Director who has a vision for the movie and does his own thing with it. and not allow the studio to intervene. What needs to be done is keeping away these the producers. and let the Director do his job.

I saw an interview with Kevin Eastman. and he told the producers the things they have to do for the movie. and they ignored him.

I would love to see Travis Knight direct this reboot. He did a fantastic job with Bumblebee. I could see him bring that same level of heart he did with Bumblebee to TMNT.

Awe, thanks. I'm doing good. Been busy with work, but my senses have been tingling about the TMNT, so decided to come on here and see if anything is happening, and behold, a deal in the works with Netflix (here's to hoping maybe we might get a TMNT series that is fashioned after something like Daredevil or The Punisher) Doubtful though.

But studios have always been jerks. Just look at all the writer strikes that go on.

And I caught a few scenes of the second film at a relative's house a few weeks ago, and I'm going to watch it when I have time. Maybe during the holidays.

I keep thinking at how relatively inexperienced Matthew Vaughn was when he tackled Kick Ass, and how great that movie came out, and I just wished we had someone like him to direct a TMNT movie.

Can't blame him. I'd have hated taking part of such garbage movies as well. Bob Hoskins also absolutely hated working on the Super Mario Bros. movie.

I think I'd be embarrassed to have such movies on my CV.
