Kevin Eastman who is half of the team that originally created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has finally made it known where comes down on the whole Michael Bay version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He posted the following on his Facebook page.
"Hey Guys, Sorry to have been away for so long--completely swamped with work--but it is some pretty exciting stuff. I had been invited to check out the TMNT film development by my friend Scott Mednick over the years, and a while back had a full look behind the curtian at what writers Appelbaum and Nemec, director Liebesman, and producer Bay are doing--and trust me--it IS AWESOME. I'm officially on board, and will share more as I'm allowed... thanks all!"
Outrage among many fans broke out earlier this week when a video clip from a Nickelodeon Upfront presentation hit the internet that featured Michael Bay who is producing the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles big-budget movie for Paramount Pictures. In the video Bay says kids are going to see this movie and believe that these turtles do exist when they are done with the movie. These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable.
Making the Turtles part of some kind of alien race instead of mutated turtles from Earth has really upset many long-time fans of the franchise, that of course if in fact is what Bay has planned.
Let us know, does the fact that one of the TMNT creators supports Bay's plans make you feel better about the upcoming movie?
