There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the upcoming remake/reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Michael Bay is at the helm with Jonathan Liebesman as the Director and stars Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett in an unspecified role, and Danny Woodburn as Master Splinter.
Bay is hoping to put to bed a lot of the criticism including the fact that they are supposedly now aliens instead of mutants. Have a read
“There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not,” Bay clarifies. “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.”
I am still a little nervous about this, but hey, who knows, maybe it will turn out ok!?!
