michael Bay Michael Bays Original TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Script LeakedAfter a few months of vociferous fan outcry, the Transformers director retreated from a set production date with the script in tow, hoping to make a more palatable offering for the masses.

Well, one particular ooze centric blog claims to have unearthed the original screenplay, and we’ve got our hands on the best bits.

While most of us thought the massive wave of criticism lodged at the film was an overreaction by basement dwelling neckbeards, these new bits of information reveal that sadly, the original plan was actually THAT bad.

Our buddies at TMNTnotTANT just broke an egg of knowledge on our heads, and here’s a quick synopsis from their rundown…

Casey and April are 18 year old, teenage sweethearts, in the midst of a tiff as Ms. O’Neil heads to New York to pursue a career as a reporter. Casey stays behind in Ho-Dunk, USA, where he runs across a group of overgrown, ninjitsu trained turtles, and hijinks ensue.

We’re just surprised this is written by the same people who wrote Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

OH… and Shredder is a cop, and not a bad ass Japanese gang leader.

You can read the entire script for yourself below:

If that doesn’t load for you though you can read the doc HERE. UTF don’t take responsibility for any brain damage that may occur after reading this script.

    Doc’s been taken down in case anyone still wanted to read it. Peter Laird posted this message on his blog about it:

    Someone else alerted me to the
    existence of this script, and I just a few minutes ago finished reading
    it. If it is, in fact, the actual draft that was rejected and caused the
    production of the next TMNT movie to be pushed back to 2014 because the
    script was unsatisfactory, then I think all true TMNT fans should be
    grateful to the new “powers that be” that they did not allow this
    wretched thing to go any further. It could definitely be taken as a good
    sign if that is the case.

    It reminds me of one of the reasons I
    am glad to not own the property anymore… because I don’t have to tear
    what little hair I have left out while trying to fix junk like this. —

    So friggin glad this crap got canned. when talk about this first happened i signed every petition that came my way and ranted about it to everyone that would listn and got even more people to sign it. on top of that, i joked it’s been the only time i was GLAD i had an incurable degenerative nerve disease that in most liklihood will be fatal since everyone knows his shit takes SO long to get to screen i’d probably be dead before i had to decide if i was going t watch it. sadly i was NOT stricken down in time to save me from the nicelodeon shitfest that is the new show or what we like to call That bastard Eastman selling out to line his pockets yet again. someone needs to hurt them (Bay and Eastman) badly before they ruin anything else.
