After a few pre-production scenes were shot with Will Arnett, the L.A. Clippers and the New York Nets last month, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is finally ready to officially start production. And to celebrate the return of the four sewer-dwelling brothers, producer Michael Bay has unveiled 2 new vehicles from the film. The first two photos show off the Brothers' new garbage truck, which serves as their main means of transpiration as they travel around town undetected. The second photo shows off the new Polaris Slingshot.
The garbage truck is painted in the traditional Turtle colors of green and yellow. The side is adorned with the name 'Tartaruga Brothers', which translates into Turtle Brothers in Italian and Portuguese. The truck itself appears to be a more subtle upgrade of the Turtle van seen in the very last scene of the first movie. It's expected that the van will also make a return.
The Polaris Slingshot is a three-wheeled motorcycle, and it's inclusion here continues Michael Bay's love of new vehicles which he usually puts on display in the Transformers movies. It isn't know who will be driving the Slingshot in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, but it does look like something Stephen Amell's Casey Jones might drive. Or perhaps we're looking at April O'Neil's (Megan Fox) new ride.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will be directed by Earth to Echo's David Green from a screenplay by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, the team responsible for last summer's adventure. It was announced yesterday that Tyler Perry has joined the sequel as Dr. Baxter Stockman. Alessandra Ambrosio is also aboard, playing Will Arnett's girlfriend. The movie will hit theaters next summer. In the meantime checkout these slick rides:
