Ninja Turtles reboot said to be best ever
Michael Bay surprised every one last year by announcing that he is backing a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film, making everyone wonder why the hell we need a new Mutant Turtle film. The last film outings for the heroes in half shells were so bad they killed off the series faster than you could say Rentokil.
What is even worse is that Bay announced that the turtles won’t even be mutants this time around, but aliens. Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles? No. Absolutely not. Director Jonathan Liebesman has been keen to state however that they will not be changing too many details (other than their genetic makeup clearly) and that turtle fans should not get too up in arms as “whatever mythology we’re building on or expanding is coming from that guy, Kevin Eastman’s head, who created the Turtles in the first place.”
Hang on, MYTHOLOGY? They are pizza eating dudes, not bloody, Grecian gods! Although many a child did worship at the alter of Michelangelo back in the 1990s…(trust me, I was there). We are beginning to suspect that all of this is becoming a tad too serious. If Michael Bay has anything to do with it, all we have to do is wait to see another classic 90s TV series ruined by having all of the fun trampled out of it (ahem…Transformers). Can we expect to see Megan Fox or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in it playing journalist, April O’Neil? Holy Shredder, we hope not.
Turtle creator Kevin Eastman has said that “from what I’ve seen, it’s easily the best Turtle movie yet”, which is really not saying much considering all previous Turtle movies have been banished to the memory banks of awfulness. The film is not due for release until 2014 so hang on in there Turtle fans…
