VICTORY!

uk.ign.com/articles/2012/06/15…

Paramount has shut down pre-production on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot over "script problems".
Translation; Paramount realised that if they continued down the path Bay was going, fans would probably burn their studios to the ground.
With luck (and a dollop of common sense) the project will be shelved altogether and the IP left fallow until competent directors/producers are brought on board.

I'm going to pretend my little campaign helped with this :D

It is only the beginning Mr. Jackson, for as long as creatively bankrupted directors walked this Earth, our memories are not Safe. Behold a new abomination

Man, I was on the verge of putting Bay above Lucas in terms of hate, but it seems that has been avoided thankfully. (Bay still f-ked up Transformers forever because of Transformers 2 and nothing will ever erase that)

Thank god! You know there are alot of things that have changed with the times for TMNT BUT there are three that should never change.
1) They're turtles
2) They atleast ACT like ninjas even if they don't have official training.
3) They're sopposed to be MUTANTS!!!
I mean really, it's in the fucking name for christ's sake! Teenage MUTANT ninja turtles. Bay can go fuck himself.

*flicks hair*


Nah in all seriousness; I'm so glad that this has been delayed. I was looking forward to seeing a new movie; till I found out that Bay added that bullshit of them being 'aliens' *insert Jackie Chan wtf face*

I hope they bin Bay altogether in all honesty, he has a horrible habit of adding explosions to explosions with a helping of explosions; with extra TNT on the side ¬_¬

Last I heard, they had instead decided that the ooze that mutates the Turtles would be alien in origin. Which would be okay, since that actually IS accurate to the original comics and various cartoons.

Well... I don't think even the hollywood people would've thought Michael Bay's latest desecration attempt was a good idea.

Anyways, Lets see what he tries to ruin next.

Oh really. That's a shame. I was looking forward to Bay's "interpretation" of the series. As much as I love TMNT, I was curious.

But I'm a filmmaker, so I might view things a little different. And my TMNT fandom is relatively new, so I can understand that I might "not understand".

I would've watched the film.

Actually, in the long run this is a bad thing.

WAIT, wait… just listen.

If this movie had gone through, as is, it would have failed MISERABLY. And maybe, just maybe it would have helped the studios realize that releasing shit was actually a bad thing (go figure) and they might have stopped doing it. The Turtles would have gone down, but it would have been fighting the forces of evil (or bad taste). And wouldn’t that be the best way for them to go out if they had too?

Jus’ sayin’.
