Will this nightmare about the new live action TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES ever end?! Ok, quick recap.. Michael Bay said the new live action TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES might have the turtles be aliens instead of mutants, and then Bay told the fans to chill, and then TMNT co-creator said there’s nothing he can do about it and asked the fans to swallow Bay’s chill pill. But Laird said that he hated the idea that there might be an alien planet full of TMNT but the director attached to the project, Jonathan Liebesman said that they’re still figuring things out and they’re expanding the story but he promised that it will stay faithful to the mythology.
Ok, have we covered them all?
Good.. Now, the update!.. BleedingCool heard that the film’s title might just be NINJA TURTLES, and that’s it! suggesting that the turtles may not even be teenagers at all.
Ouch! It seems like they’re taking away every little piece of TMNT that we grew up with. What’s next? They may be not do ninja skills too?! That they’re tortoises instead of turtles?! This is just getting more and more ridiculous.
If you don’t believe me, just go to the forums at Michael Bay’s official site, it lists NINJA TURTLES, not Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The argument is that for marketing purposes, much like when Disney decided to remove OF MARS from JOHN CARTER. And that didn’t work out too well for them, huh?!
The new live action TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is a collaboration of Paramount and Nickelodeon along with Platinum Dunes boys (Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Anderw Form) who help oversee and produce the project which is a reboot of the old 90s New Line movies we grew up watching. And you’ve heard, the movie would be released in theaters on December 25, 2013
