While no official plot has been given for the August 8 release, it's clear that the film takes place in a crime-ravaged New York City. Fearless reporter April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and her witty cameraman Vern Fenwick (Arnett) team up with the pizza-eating turtles to take down Shredder (William Fichtner) and his evil Foot Clan.
ETonline asked William Fichtner about the storyline, and he revealed, "We've supplied the character of Eric Sachs (aka Shredder) with an awesome time, and with an awful lot of great twists and turns for a guy. But more importantly, I don't think that any version that I've ever seen of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got you ready for what this one is. This is a whole new deal. This is a whole new ballgame. These turtles are unlike anything you've ever seen. They're crazy, it's freaky, it's live-action, and it's going to look awesome. I love Jonathan Liebesman, who directed it. I really felt that he got an amazing handle on what it was and what he wanted, and we'll see. August 8 ... can't wait!"
