Schrader... Shredder... oooooooooooooooooooooh.
Almost happened or is still happening? IMDB lists it as being in pre-production with a release date of May 16, 2014.
Yeah, production got pushed back because this script was too shitty for even Paramount.

Terminate him, immediately.
If you're gonna make a movie with this outlandish a script, just stick to the original fucking story. Don't half-pretend this shit is all going down in the real world. This Transformers-esque bullshit is tiring.
What's so annoying about this synopsis is that it's using every major story detail of the last 5 years of blockbuster movies. So not only is this script basically sending the message to franchise fans to stay away, but the unfamiliar young audience will just get the same movie they watch occasionally at home on blu ray.
It really is just Transformers with The Beef replaced by a teenage Casey Jones and the giant robots replaced with humanoid turtles who are now aliens because somehow that's less crazy than mutants.
I'd like to see this script produced in a "Be Kind Rewind" kind of way.
This has been confirmed to be true, by the way. Kevin Eastman has gone public that he was contacted to be involved in the movie as some sort of adviser (i.e. we can use your name in the marketing as the creator, but you get paid about 1/100th what you should be) and they gave him a copy of the overall treatment.
ridiculous source material deserves a ridiculous treatment. what does the internet expect, a character-driven cerebral thriller directed by David Cronenberg? hollywood does not owe it to you to repackage the dumb shit you liked as a kid as something less embarrassing.

Dear god. That's bad even by Michael bay standards. Not that I was planning on seeing it, but how do you fuck up such a simple story?
