Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of The Shadows is arriving in theaters this weekend and producer Brad Fuller is opening up about his experience on the film and how this is a sequel he hopes will satisfy fans and improve upon mistakes from the first movie.
Fuller explained that he wants to complete this storyline and not move into a crossover universe without a legitimate reason.
“It feels to me like we need to do a lot more work before we get to that stage. First, I would think we want to make, if we’re lucky enough to have another Turtle movie beyond this one, I don’t know why we would start doing a crossover until it felt like the storylines had been played out in the Turtle world. I feel like Kevin (Eastman) and Peter (Laird) have created so many amazing stories that we’re not even close to that. So I’m not even sure why I would want to do it at this point.”
He added that at this moment in time, no crossover is being planned between Turtles and Transformers, which is within Michael Bay’s wheelhouse. Bay serves as a producer on Turtle.
“I will say that in this Turtle movie there is a tangential moment that the Transformers fans will enjoy. At this point, and I hate this, but at this point I can’t see any kind of crossover. There’s never been talk of that. We’re just trying to create an environment where people are eager to see more Turtles. If that happens, no one has mentioned it to me. And I don’t think anyone has ever mentioned it to Bay. I don’t know how that would happen.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows opens everywhere on June 3rd. Dave Green directed the film, with a screenplay from Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec, with producers Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Galen Walker and Scott Mednick attached on the project.
