New Big Screen TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES To Have Alien Origin?
Say it isn’t so? Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes will be producing the upcoming TEENAGE MUTNAT NINJA TURTLES reboot directed by Jonathan Liebesman. Guess what! Bay says the turtles will have an alien origin this time. I’m a fan of Bay but this may be way off base here for die hard fans.
The movie is written by Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and John Fusco, with a December 25th, 2013 release date set.
My problem is the turtles are “mutants”, not “aliens”. This might not be well received at all. I hope Bay and the writers are paying attention to the news sites covering this announcement. For now, check out the video below of Bay talking at the 2012 Nickeloden Upfront on March 14 at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York.
