Michael “Fucken” Bay, is producing the new TMNT live action film with Wrath Of The Titans helmer Johnathan Liebesman directing. So you know from the outset the scale is gonna be something of a spectacle – well the first news of change is out with the title being “downsized” to “Ninja Turtles”. Bay posted on his website (courtesy of IGN and Steve Potter):
“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.”
Hope not Mike, hope fucken not!
