More on the movie...
In an interview with Flicks and the City (Via Superhero Hype), William Fichtner gave even more details on his role as Eric Sachs, The Shredder, in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Here are highlights:
On the tone of the film: "It always had sort of a bouncy cartoon feel to me, which is great, that's why it was appealing. That's not this movie....It's not like any Mutant NInja Turtles thing you've ever seen before. It's freaky, they're cool, and they're mutants and they look awesome. It's tough and it's going to be really, really great."
On his character: "Well I play a guy named Eric Sachs and we find out that Eric Sachs is somebody else too. I can't give away too much in the story but I can tell you that who Shredder is in the telling of this Turtles is unlike any telling of the story before. His connection and relationship to the turtles is a bit surprising and for an actor playing it, the backstory, which comes out in this film, is really intriguing...We made some changes while filming that I thought are just awesome."
On the look of The Shredder: "Shredder dons himself with armor, and that's who he is and that happens in this story. It's the backstory on how it all began with the turtles, that the character of Eric Sachs....it's not by chance that he knows the Turtles."
On possible sequels: "Do I think you're going to see another one? I think you're going to see a few of them. Well I signed a three picture thing, so I'll see what happens."
