“Everyone is very excited to have Taylor Lautner,” said the filmmaker behind of this project, Michael Bay. “He is an artist of martial disciplines and really fit the mold of the Ninja Turtles movie on that plan.”
“Some people hate Taylor, but relax. He is a great actor. Everyone complains about him because of Twilight. But what I saw in Abduction, do you still hate him? So calm down,” added Bay.
The Ninja Turtles will be produced by Michael Bay, and will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, who directed Clash of the Titans 2. Taylor Lautner will play “Leonardo”, the turtle’s loyal member.
