Michael Bay Tells Angry ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Fans to “Chill”

Michael Bay Dot Com

Yesterday the Internet was in a complete uproar, but not over the news that Platinum Dunes was going ahead with a ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ reboot (we’re used to that already especially since the last time they did that was with a CGI animated movie back in 2007). No, fans were fuming over the fact that producer Michael Bay wanted our favorite pizza loving turtles not to be mutated but aliens from another world, thus deleting the “mutant” in their title.  After all of the crazy complaining online about the sudden decision to alter the Ninja Turtles’ origin story, Michael Bay told fans to take a chill pill.  What exactly did he say?

Bay jumped on his own message boards and told angry ‘TMNT’ fanboys:

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

The fact that they have one of the creators on board should be something that’ll calm fans down, but only to a certain degree. Let us not forget that this particular picture isn’t being directed by Michael Bay but just produced, so some of you Bay haters can relax. Besides, he’s too preoccupied putting together ‘Pain and Gain’ to even try and think about directing this reboot.

However, if one wants to nitpick Bay’s paragraph, the biggest thing that could keep some fans upset is him basically telling them to calm down and be quiet because they haven’t read the script. That may add fuel to the fire for some people who already aren’t happy with Bay’s description on the new Turtles, but at this point what does it matter? They’re going to do what they want with our Turtles no matter what. We’re just better off patiently waiting to see how this reboot will look in a few months time.
