    ..The team of crime-fighting turtles, who will not be mutants in Michael Bay’s upcoming film, will reportedly not be teenagers either.

    According to Bleeding Cool, the most recent update to the franchise is going by the working title Ninja Turtles.

    ..The recent title shortening is the most recently announced change from the original concept, which spawned an animated TV series, several films and a line of merchandise. Bay stopped by Nickelodeon Upfront earlier this month and revealed that he would be making a significant change to the turtles’ origins -- instead of mutants, they would be aliens.

    The news was received with much outrage by fans of the original series, along with Turtle alums, including Robbie Rist, who voiced Michelangelo in the 1990 film. Bay responded on his website, telling fans to "take a breath, and chill," explaining that the film's team is "building a richer world."

    But that didn't stop some fans from taking to Twitter and voicing their concerns with Bay's creative liberties.

    At that pace, martial arts'll be out the window. They'll take part in an anti-bullying campaign and pizza's gonna be replaced with a low-fat, no carb diet. :snicker:

    people who liked Bay's Transformers will like this. It's just nerds finding a reason to get upset about nerdy shit.

    Not nearly half as bad as The Karate Kid doing Kung Fu in China.

    Yeah, man. That's still fucked up. I guess Will Smith thinks that all those slanty-eyed people are the same.

    I understand why people are upset...I grew up with the TMNT and loved 'em. But we all need to realize that these shitty remakes are going to happen to everything we once loved and those things that we loved will still be there.

    In the past decade there's been remakes of:

    Dawn of the Dead
    Day of the Dead
    The Crazies
    Friday the 13th
    Nightmare on Elm street
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    Clash of the Titans
    The Karate Kid
    Halloween, H2
    The Thing (yeah, I know Carpenter's The Thing was a remake too)
    Etc.

    They're even remaking The Evil Dead and re-remaking The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    Some where OK, some sucked and some I'd never watch in a million years (The Karate Kid remake). It's dumb, but I don't care that much because I'll always have the originals to watch and remember whenever I want. Hollywood will always ruin classic, iconic franchises in order to make a buck, so there's really no value in getting all worked up about it.

    I thought the last version of The Thing was a prequel.

    Well, you're right. Technically it was. But aside for the end lining up with the beginning of Carpenter's movie, it was essentially the same movie set on another base. I suppose the same could be said about most horror sequels tho', so I guess The Thing is it's own movie.

    I loved the TMNT comics. The movies were a goof anyway. They didn't follow the comics at all. Made it all about rap and pizza.
