Michael Bay and his production company Platinum Dunes have been working on a TMNT reboot, and Ernie Reyes Jr. is actively trying to become the martial arts consultant for the film. Reyes Jr. previously worked as Donatello’s fight/stunt double in the first film and then starred as Keno in the sequel. Since then he has worked steadily as an actor and stunt double.
To help sell his case, he’s posted this sizzle reel on Vimeo showcasing the “the angle and velocity that Ernie wants to bring to the Ninja Turtles comeback film.” If this is what Reyes Jr. has in mind for the film, it’s at least worth taking a meeting. The upcoming Jonathan Liebesman-directed reboot, titled Ninja Turtles, is scheduled to arrive in theaters sometime in 2014.
