Michael Bay a director and producer known for his subtly and cinematic artistry, is set to produce a reboot of the 1980′s fan favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Bay was recently speaking at Nickelodeon Upfront and stated that they planned to make a few tweaks to the 30-year-old franchise. He announced just a few minor changes that fans of the series will probably not even notice. What sort of little changes could Producer Bay and Wrath of the Titans Director Liebesman have in mind.
How about if the turtles were not actually mutants at all and instead aliens? I am sure fans of the series and characters will not notice that change at all. Apparently, gone is the origin story of some turtles being exposed to radioactive waste in a sewer. Bay did not address how alien turtles from space would become proficient in the art of the Ninja. He also did not mention anything about how the turtles would be trained by a rat named Splinter, or if they would have a love of pizza.
Has Michael Bay finally gone to far? Has he finally ruined your childhood memories and dreams enough that it is time to take action? Should Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo hunt down Bay and Liebesman and transport them to Gitmo for permanent detention?
