Corey Feldman, the '80s teen star who appeared as Donatello in the first wave of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action films, has been in communication with Michael Bay to return to the role in Ninja Turtles, Bay's forthcoming reboot of the franchise. It may seem like a longshot, but Bay was instrumental in putting together that Transformers franchise, which brought Peter Cullen back as the voice of Optimus Prime. And it can't hurt anything that Feldman has been one of the only people associated with the TMNT who has expressed unreserved optimism for the reboot, and who has said he'll be supportive of and excited by it even if he's not cast. What, exactly, are the chances of seeing (hearing) Feldman return to the role? Here's what MovieWeb had to say on the matter:
We recently caught up with Corey Feldman, who has revealed that Michael Bay and he have become social acquaintances. And that they are in "communications". No formal offer has been made just yet, and as Feldman tells it, the decision lies in the hands of director Jonathan Liebesman.
