RELAX, I'm Not Gonna Crap

Michael Bay has a strong message for the panicked Ninja Turtles fans who are freaking out about his new TMNT movie ... CHILL THE HELL OUT!!!!

Turtle fans have been going INSANE ever since Bay announced he was planning to tweak the origin story in his upcoming live action movie ... with Leo and the gang belonging to an alien race instead of mutating from ooze in the sewer.

Now, Bay has released a statement ... saying, "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."

He continues, "Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world."

Satisfied?

The sad truth of the matter is that regardless of how potentially bad this could (and probably will) be, most people will still go see it. Why? Because in this day and age mediocrity sells. Everything's a remake / reboot nowadays because filmmakers know that people will go based on name recognition alone. If people stopped paying to see crap movies, then maybe studios, directors and the like will try harder to create quality projects. People will swarm to see this BECAUSE it's the Ninja Turtles......not because it could be a potentially great film. Bay sees nothing but dollar signs, and couldn't care less about the source material.....origins of the characters, etc. Because of this, he'll turn a hell of a profit. Bottom line. Stop paying to watch crap, and the studios may get the hint. But.....it'll never happen.

I guess its to hard for them to come up with original ideas in hollywood. No wonder they're all drug addicts and pedophiles

He craps on everything he does. He's nothing but a big stinking pile of crap with an ego the size of LA.

maybe he plans to use the Utrom for this movie who are an alien race and one of them was the shredder and they created the mutagenic ooze, all of this from the 2003 tmnt cartoon series, though personally i'm a fan of the happening of the 1987 animated series turtles over all else live action or other wise

Question: Michael, do you have permission to change TMNT from original format? Who is the creator? Michael will ruin the franchise.
