NBA star J.J. Redick was recently interviewed on the Grantland podcast with Zach Lowe and revealed some interesting information.
He accidentally revealed that the Turtles II film title is going to be “Half Shell”. A snippet of their conversation is below…
J.J. Redick: “Myself, Austin Rivers, Matt Barnes, Spencer Hawes, and DeAndre Jordan … later this afternoon, the five of us, along with five Knicks players are going to be back at MSG and we’re going to be filming a scene for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel, Half Shell.”
Zach Lowe: “It’s called Half Shell?”
J.J. Redick: (laughing) “It’s called Half Shell, I probably shouldn’t of said that. I’m gonna get in trouble.”
We recently reported about the cameo and how it will feature five Los Angeles Clippers, but now we’re aware five New York Knicks players will also cameo as well. The NBA action scene was shot on 3/26 so now it’s history. So far this film has really been kept under wraps from the public. Only small, but interesting tidbits have been released. A special kudos to the entire production team on TMNT 2.
