Michael Bay: “Fans need to take a breath, and chill,”
When word got out that Transformers director Michael Bay was set to revive the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise fan’s weren’t too pleased. Even more so when he had the following to say about his revamp:
“When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie. These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable.”
Fans of the long running franchise were outraged, forcing Bay to make another public statement via his official website, saying;
“Fans need to take a breath, and chill,” said Bay via his official website. “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. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.”
Let’s hope Bay knows what he’s talking about.
The film’s planned release is Christmas day 2013.
