Jonathan Liebesman Talks About The Origins Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.18.2014



Coming Soon reports that while at a screening of footage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at the Sherry Lansing Theater on the Paramount Pictures lot, director Jonathan Liebesman spoke about the origin of the Turtles and their villains. Here are highlights:

On what had to be in the movie: "I think for me, the touchstones were April O'Neil, Shredder, the Turtles and Splinter. Make sure we see how they become turtles. Make sure they're mutants. Make sure there's pizza."

On Donatello's personality: "I think he's just your typical teenager. Well, maybe not typical. But he's still a massive geek who lives in his basement and has the most powerful internet connection in all of New York City. You can't tell in what you saw, but he has these Nintendo keypads that he's rigged into this little miniature holographic thing. He's totally geeked out and invented his own equipment. In my head, he's got these solar powered sort of ninja outfit. It's solar powered so it can power all the gear on his back. He has a whole bunch of stuff."

On William Fichtner as Shredder: "William Fichtner isn't Shredder. [Fichtner] is Eric Sachs. Shredder is played by another actor. He's not all CG. You see him without his armor on. When he's in the armor, there's an actor, but he's been augmented. Like in 'Iron Man,' it's CGI."
