William Fichtner Talks Shredder in the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Movie Reboot


Screen Rant‘s Amy Nicholson was interviewing Fichtner about Disney’s The Lone Ranger – where he plays a (literally) blood-thirsty version of the Ranger’s foe Butch Cavendish – when she asked him about whether he had started to get down his look as The Shredder in the TMNT reboot.

Fichtner replied as follows:

“I actually play a guy named Eric Sachs [Sounds like Sachs? Hard to understand] in the movie. And then he goes through a few stages in his existence.”

He became more vague, after that initial outburst of information:

“But Turtles is coming together very, very cool. There is a whole interesting dynamic that happens in the world of Turtles and all I can really say about it at this point while working on it is that the Turtle film, it’s not like anything that I remember about the Turtles before. I feel like this Michael Bay-produced movie is just gonna really be something else. I’m pretty excited.”

Lastly, as for whether or not Eric will be Japanese, Fichtner said:

“You know, uh, you know I think it would be much more exciting to find out these things as it unfolds.”
