Michael Bay’s TMNT is happening whether we want it to or not. Megan Fox is playing April O’Neil whether we want it or not. The turtles are going to be aliens whether we want it or…..wait what’s that? They are not going to be aliens? But Bay was famously going to change them into aliens and also not have them be teenagers effectively eliminating half of the title.
Wait, now he says that they are now back to their original origin story with the ooze and not just that, but that there was never eeeeeever a plan to make them alien.
“There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not, It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.”
Oh, go eat a bag of dicks Michael Bay.
There are interviews with people involved with the project that confirmed they were going to be aliens and then when that leaked out there was a mystery halt in the project so the script could be re-written. You think all is forgiven for adding ooze into the script? God you giant douche nozzle. He thinks most people are morons and can say what ever he wants. And honestly because Transformers 2 & 3 made a billion dollars each I can see why he thinks that a bit.
