Michael Bay wants you to "chill" over this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle stuff

03.20.2012

After the massive backlash against the "Turtles from space" origin that director Michael Bay is concocting for the big-budget reboot of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE franchise with director Jonathan Liebesman (WRATH OF THE TITANS), Bay has spoken up on his own website.

Here's what he had to say:

Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.

This was posted in Bay's forum on his website, where a multitude of his fans are flocking to his defense.  Still, it can't be ignored that massive changes to a beloved childhood property will bring the heat.  Some dismiss the outrage as whiny crybabies, while others tout the origin shift as sacrilige to the original material.  I fall somewhere in the middle. 

I think the fact that Eastman and Laird, the original creators, molded the Turtles out of another superhero's origin (Daredevil) is a clever nod and something worth retaining in their lineage, regardles of what format they're in.  On the other hand, the Turtles haven't had the best of luck getting translated to any medium since the '90's, so maybe this is what they need.  If it sucks, well, it's not like they won't try again.

Either way, I'm interested to see how this plays out, especially with die hard fans in such an uproar.  Occupy Bay, anyone?  Dust off your Turtle costumes and nunchuckas...

Extra Tidbit: Andy Serkis as all of the Ninja Turtles in mo-cap? Zack Galifianakis as Splinter? Emma Stone as April O'Neil? Ray Park as Casey Jones? Sorry, that's my sitcom cast. Who do you want to see in this thing?

It's all about selling toys.

Anyone who does not realize that the suits are thinking they can sell 1,000,000 units of the TMNT space ship for $89.99 does not realize why they are changing the origin.

This movie is not about pandering to the masses or the fans. It's about selling action figures and accessories.

"OMG a blue Leonardo mask for 19.99! I must have it!"
"Timmy, I can make you one from this blue bandana"
"But Moooooooom, it doesn't have the officially licensed L insignia on the side!!!"

To be fair, there are Space Turtles in Ninja Turtles.

But that does make it kinda difficult for them to be Ninjas if they aren't from Earth. Somebody should photoshop that crazy ancient-aliens guy with a Ninja Turtle for his face.

I love how he wants Fanboys to calm down because "one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles" is working with him. Apparently, he has never heard of Star Wars.

The cast will definetly look like this:
One of the Turtles will definetly be voiced by Shia Lebeouf
Splinter will be voiced by Tracy Morgan (with mandatory racial slurs)
Shredder will be Ken Jeong with a martial arts stunt-double
April O'Neal will be (insert: miscast victoria secret model)
One scene will feature an exploding Pizza truck followed by an unfunny on-liner like "Whoa, next time we order (insert: product-placement) with no hot-sauce/less spice"

If the ooze is from space, and it somehow crashes to Earth and mutates regular Earth turtles, awesome!

However, the quote from when he announced it is this- “These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny, and completely lovable.”

So, how in the hell are they mutants? I am not a huge fan of the series, but by having it called "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", and having them not be mutants makes as much sense as making three films about giant space alien

I'd like Bay to lay off the Turtles, is what I want. I like the direction the CG film was going and don't want some goofy, made up backstory. No, Michael Bay is not making this deeper. He is messing with a 20+ year old backstory that is just fine without his input. Stick to what works, not some goofy, dumb space bound origin.

ALIENS!? Maybe space ooze...

I wish it was Guillermo del Toro in charge of a re-imagining of TMNT.

With that being said, the OOZE could be from space, without having the turtles be aliens. Did they say somewhere that the turtles were Aliens, or was it said that there was a space element added to the story?

Theres nothing to create, the story is already there! If you want to go the comic book route, make the ooze from outer space, but turtles are from earth. Pick an origin (comic/first film) & STICK WITH IT!

I know on the other article I said i didn't think this was a bad idea, but I've changed my mind. This is a terrible idea. As I'm sure others have said, making them aliens would mean they're not mutants, and thus they wouldn't be Teenage MUTANT Ninja Turtles. What does Bay not understand about that?

The only way I can imagine them still being "mutants," would be that they were just regular old little turtles from some other planet that somehow came to Earth, and then mutated into Ninja

The only way I can imagine them still being "mutants," would be that they were just regular old little turtles from some other planet that somehow came to Earth, and then mutated into Ninja Turtles... and let's be honest, that's stupid as hell! Or maybe they're alien shape-shifters who take the form of mutated turtles, and again, that's stupid as hell. Any scenario in my mind that I can think of that would explain how an alien turtle could also be a mutant is...you guessed it, stupid as hell. You can say this is just a semantic issue, but when this is the title of the movie, then it should matter. If the movie somehow comes up for a good explanation on how they are both aliens and mutants, I'll gladly recant my words.

What you on about, Bay? I'm chilled. I mean, I'm pretty cool with the fact I won't watch you screw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles up. And, besides, why do we need to mess too much with a good thing? TMNT is already high concept and there is no need for some alien back story.

"Rich"... lol, I see what you did there Bay. It's funny because your films aren't rich.

Ego driven bastich!

Disrespecting the source material of a beloved franchise is one thing but when you basically tell the fans you dont care what they think nor about what they want then you cross the line of common decency. The fact that one of the original creators (Im assuming its Peter Laird as he had the rights before selling them to Nickelodeon)is involved and hasnt scoffed at this idea upsets me even more. Making these characters aliens is assinine stupidity.

I kind of agree with him. Don't get me wrong, he is an asshat whose film production company is nothing more than a terrible remake factory, but as far as TMNT goes, who really gives a shit? The cartoon and film both strayed pretty far from the original comic material, which was far darker. The original film was o.k, but the sequels were bad. Maybe its just me, but I'm not all that beholden to the property. If he remakes Raging Bull with the lead character being a boxing minotaur then wake me up.

Bwahaha. Judging by half of this guy's films, he's never read any of the script's.
The man can blow things up, film it at stupid angles, edit it badly so you can't see what's blowing up, and add some lens flare. That's about it. Oh and he also enjoys jamming cameras as far up a girls vagina as he can get them it would seem.
He is shit, his movies are shit, his casting is shit, his production company has produced nothing but a constant stream of shit re-makes.....it's all shit.

April O'Neil to be played by a glamor model perhaps. One of the Turtles will be a black stereotype (he'll be the one with gold teeth). Christ, I have a few baby photos he could wipe his ass with if he's really that bothered about shitting on everything about my childhood I once enjoyed.

What he means by chill out is to not take an off the cuff comment before a final draft is completed and blow it up into a "ZOMG BAY RAPES MY CHILDHOOD AGAIN!" rant. I grew up on the TMNT and Tranformers too, and I have no issue with slight retooling, as long as we get some badass TMNT action.

Thats not really the point, the point here that everyones upset about is that Directors or Producers, think they can do whatever they want with franchises with already established fan base. And they decide to "improve" the story not for the fan base cause they figure we will go anyway. But too attract a new market i.e more money. And in this case, Bay already has a reputation for ruining a beloved franchise with his own "richer world". A quality director would take heed to a vicious

A quality director would take heed to a vicious backlash from the fan base, not tell everyone to chill ill do it my way.. i.e Ridley Scott, Simon West and Stallone in Expendables 2.

Scott has respect for already established origins. and Stallone and West obviously saw the backlash to the PG13 rating, and now we're hearing that it will be R.

The big deal is that, when theres already a story that your going to cash in on.. they the writers, directors, still have to care, and handle the film accordingly. Not just chase down a new generation with some flash gimmick to generate more income.

This is the complete opposite reaction compared to Ridley Scott's Prometheus, because he (Scott) is being hugely respectful to the core subject material and fans. Lesson?

To Be Honest, It Makes Sense!!!

If aliens were to evolve into intelligent lifeforms comparable to humans, it is very possible that they would have evolved from turtle like beings, just as in District 9 or any of the movies that have the aliens being insect evolved beings. Also, the mutating ooze bit is a bit dated as it stemmed from theories inspired by the effects of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, hence Godzilla, and Godzilla would be seen as ridiculous today, but if you embrace the ridiculousness of it, you get campy cult gold.

I am not standing up for Bay because I am not a huge fan. However, they may not refer to themselves as turtles but if a New Yorker saw one of them running down the street or if one got hit by a cab he might say something like, "that sort of looked like a turtle in a trench coat." So it work...I guess. I'd rather them stick with the original origin story but I guess they could make them being aliens still make sense...

Michael Bay: Just chill...I'm gonna bring in a bunch of regular Coen brothers actors to do all of that 'acting' you nerds like so much. Between action scenes we'll have plenty of overlong, unfunny and inappropriate dialog between Malkovich, Turturro, and Fran McDormand.

Sure...

We're suppose to relax and trust in a script Michael Bay is involved with?? Dude just really is oblivious. I'm sure this script will be just as thought out and wonderful as your Transformers scripts. Those movies are only passable because you can just focus on the CGI goodness of giant f**ing robots, but the story, dialogue, everything else was atrocious. So if you bring that crap plus fundamentally altering the backstory to the Turtles then yea people are gonna be pissed. I can just picture

I can just picture now Michelangelo talking like those ghetto racist robots from the 2nd Transformers and the thought is very upsetting.
