Ninja Turtles to No Longer be Mutants or Teenagers

TMNT Number 1Oh, Michael Bay … can’t you just stop talking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie before you just make it too much to bear?

Michael Bay has decided to throw more fuel on the fire that is the upcoming disaster that is the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film.  Previously he was addressing the fact that the characters will now be aliens as opposed to mutated turtles.  Well, if you change that part, you have to  change the title, right?  Yep.  And once again, he took to his own forums to explain it.

Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE’S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN.


Sure, Bay, blame it on the studio. How are we supposed to chill out about this when every other day it seems like you have to come along and reassure the fans that you aren’t going to mess this up? You know how you do that? Stop doing things that make us think you’re going to mess it up.

I know, crazy aren’t I?  I’m wild that way.

It’s already like this is watching a train wreck happen and they haven’t even started filming yet.
