The Hollywood News about his role of Shredder in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot pegged for Summer 2014 release.
"What I read about Eric Sachs in the script was great, and
then how the character has been moulded and changed when we started
filming has become something really quite remarkable in terms of what
we’ve seen before of the character."
Fichtner also thinks that fans will be blown away by the new turtles in the film, saying: “They are some messed up mutant turtles!”
Unfortunately Fitchner also confirmed that two of the greatest villains of all time will not be in the movie, Bebeop and Rocksteady will NOT be joining the film. This is very upsetting for me, I always had that part of my brain that kept saying "don't worry, they'll show up". Here's hoping they make an appearance in the sequel if the film gets one.
Plus is anybody else still a bit bothered that they have taken away Oroku Saki and made him into Eric Sachs, they didn't have to Americanise him in my opinion. There is probably hundreds of Japanese actors out there that could have played the role perfectly.
