Re: New live action "Turtles"?

Be honest, did anyone really think a popular pizza restaurant chain wouldn't have product placement in this movie? If it weren't Pizza Hut, someone else would have volunteered.

I hope they don't focus TOO much on Pizza. It became ridiculous on the second movie. I thought I was watching a Pizza commercial at times!

Will Casey Jones be in this movie?

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

Keep in mind, the first TMNT movie had product-placement pizza (Domino's) the second movie didn't use product-placement for the pizza and seemed to have the Turtles prefer to get non-chain New York restaurant pizza.

I hope they don't focus TOO much on Pizza. It became ridiculous on the second movie. I thought I was watching a Pizza commercial at times!

Will Casey Jones be in this movie?
Yeah, played by Shia LeBeouf.

I literally have no hope for this movie. William Fichtner is playing "The Shredder" (or some version of.) So it's either going to be Shia LeBeouff, John Turturro or some racial caricature.

It's being directed by Jonathan Liebesman, not Michael Bay though. While it will have Bay's fingerprints all over it, I have my hopes that it will be much better than the recent Transformers movies.

Saw the link earlier. It had pics of the turtles' sewer lair and chairs that were made from Pizza Hut boxes. There was some serious product placement.

At this point, pizza has become an important part of the whole Turtles franchise. Maybe too important.

Yeah, but have you seen any of Liebesman's movies? His filmography is even worse than Bay's.

They've reworked the script since then. The Turtles are no longer Aliens, their origin is closer to the comics now.
