The first bit of concept art for the new Michael Bay Ninja Turtles film may have just been posted online.
Rapper Kid Cudi posted on his Tumblr account a sketch of a Ninja Turtle that was given to him by Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, who run the production company Platinum Dunes along with Michael Bay. The sketch was drawn by Kevin Eastman who is one of the co-creators of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Under the sketch, Cudi wrote;
An original one of a kind sketch of a unknown Ninja Turtle by one half of the creators, Kevin Eastman. A gift given to me by my homies Andrew Form and Brad Fuller over at Platinum Dunes. Hint hint mane.
When he says ”unknown Turtle”, is he dropping hints about a new turtle in the film? He also tweeted the following message which suggests that hes involved in the film in some way;
To everyone with doubts & concerns about the new TMNT reboot, trust me, there is NOTHING to worry about. Trust. Everyone will be pleased!
Cudi could be doing music for the film or maybe voicing one of the Turtles, I’m sure we will find out soon enough.
Michael Bay caused a bit of a stir last month when he said the Turtles will no longer be mutants but aliens, and by shortening the name to ”Ninja Turtles.” If this is a sketch of what the turtles will look like in the film, then there are similarities to the blocky/chunky look Michael bay is fond off. But one things for sure, it will divide fan opinion like all Bay movies do.
