    Holy fuck does he need to be killed now. In his movie he is going to make them be aliens from space. I seriously hate this guy.

    TBH he might actually be able to pull something like this off, probably be a lot better than that other recent 3d version.

    I wonder which Turtle is going to have to speak with the inevitable cool-urban-hip-hop voice and Ebonics slang.
    my money is on Raphael.

    If you read the article, (which you clearly haven't) you would realize his plot would make as much sense as telling LOTR in the Star Wars universe with a very niggerish Frodo whom is unchallenged by anything on his quest. During battles he would effortlessly win and all while with a smug grin on his face.

    They are fucking humanoid turtles... that are ninjas... Does it really effing matter? All that matters is it being entertaining, probably mainly to children.

    It's like when people say Transformers movies ruin their childhood memories or ruin the original interpretation, implying that the original was not already just some crappy ass children's cartoon anyways. :lol:

    What's the problem? :p

    I'm rather hoping that when Bay is using the term "Alien" he's using it in the same way that Americans refer to Mexicans as Aliens... Funny-looking do-gooders.
    It's massively changing the context of the entire concept if the statement is accurate.

    Some people actually want a TMNT movie to be done properly, to find out it's licence has been bought and it's being worked on by some guy that doesn't appear to have gone so far to work out what the people who actually want to movie want is bad times. To find out he's also re-conceptualising it so it's barely recognisable is just infuriating.

    Why does it have to be TMNT if it's not going to honour the source material? Why can't anyone make something new anymore?

    I agree. They're Turtles; they've mutated. We should celebrate that. :)

    But he should be allowed to proceed.... you wouldn't want him to ruin a perfect record. :lol:

    The Mirage comics (1-21) is what I read as a kid. I was never a fan of the cartoon really as it was gayed up. I did however love the video games.

    Easy - the amount of money involved in movies these days. Take an existing franchise or at least a proven concept, through lots of money, contemporary music and actors at it and you already break even (in most cases, anyway).

    Make something new on the other hand - struggle to get funding and people's interest, lots of risks to run the whole thing aground right from the start...

    Hence so many shit movies in the last 5 years.

    Anyway, the comics I read as a kid and young teen ruled.

    I think Guillermo Del Toro could pull off a really good comic-book inspired TMNT, but OTOH, who friggin cares anymore?

    After raping Transformers and now setting his sights on TMNT I am sure Bay will go after Silver Hawks, Thunder Cats, M.A.S.K, and Dino-Riders for future movie explosion extravaganzas!

    I am sure he wanted to GI-Joe but someone already fucked that up...

    Am I the only person here who remembers the original three TMNT movies that came out in the early 90's? I'll give you some hints.
