Over the past week it seems Cudi dropped a few hints as to his involvement in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot directed by Michael Bay (Transformers).
Update: We’ve updated the story with a new tweet from Brad Fuller.
Taking to his tumblr, Cudi shared a photo (seen below) of a orginal Ninja Turtle sketch given to him by Andrew Form and Brad Fuller who make up two-thirds of the production company Platinum Dunes, with the other third belonging to Micheal Bay. The company is set to work on the upcoming Ninja Turtles movie and are also in talks to take over the next Halloween series movie (Cudi loves Horror movies).

He followed that up with two tweets vouching for the upcoming Ninja Turtles reboot after a ton of fan outrage over changes being made to the film by Bay.
Now, there’s no current confirmation on whether or not Cudi is actually in the film and a search on IMDB doesn’t provide any additional information but he is defnitely hinting at something.
Could it be a role in the new movie? Is he working on an original song for the movies soundtrack? Both are possible, especially an original recoridng by Cudi as he’s recently received placement in The Hunger Games and Fright Night.
UPDATE: It looks like Brad Fuller (1/3 of Platinum Dunes) tweeted the following from his twitter account. It would be surprising for him to tweet this story if it wasn’t true.
