    New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie

    It looks like Michael Bay is in charge.


    deadline.com:

    EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon have brought Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form on to produce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the live-action film that reboots the film series launched by New Line in 1990. Bay, Fuller and Form will produce with Galen Walker and Scott Mednick.

    The producers will begin meetings with writers in the next few weeks. The deal puts Bay in the center of two Paramount franchises, as he started production May 17 on Transformers 3, and is zeroing in on Rosie Huntington-Whitely to replace Megan Fox as love interest for Shia LaBeouf. TNMT, a co-production between Paramount and Nickelodeon, is an outgrowth of the $60 million acquisition made by Nick last October for global rights to the entire Turtles franchise. Right around the same time, Paramount made a first look deal with the Platinum Dunes partners, who will generate genre projects but also want to expand their scope. While they've already set up several projects including a Rob Cohen-remake of Fright Night, the Turtles film puts them into new territory.

    I wish I could post what I just said outloud when I read it, but it is not appropriate for the forum. All I can say is, ANY hope that I had for the new Ninja Turtles movie being any good just smashed it's way right out the window.

    I like the Bayformers flicks, and I appreciate him for what he does and is. He doesn't really make any bones about it. That said, there's nothing to imply that Bay is going to direct this TMNT movie. I think that it could be fantastic. I have read that the intent is to go back to the original Mirage comics and to have live-action turtles with CGI enhanced performances (akin to what was done splendidly in Where the Wild Things Are). At one point, there was some scuttlebutt about Sarah Michelle Gellar and Chris Evan reprising their roles from the Imagi movie, but that info is old and with Evans donning Captain America's mask soon, that may be unlikely.

    In any event, if this movie is half as wonderful as the original film, we'll be just fine. That movie has stood the test of time and I consider it a nearly flawless piece of art. I love me some TMNT!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I have never met a more positive person in my life. That is a compliment not an insult. I think you're the only person on this board who doesn't complain about or dislike anything.

    The box office numbers say otherwise. I think the Transformers movies are good popcorn flicks, but nothing special. Bay is pretty polarizing among the internet community, though. There are definitely some Transformers fans that despise him.

    I'll give this new TMNT movie a chance.

    I am by NO means a film prude, but I don't see how anyone can find ANY redeeming value in the second Transformers movie. The first was okay, but even it was far from being anything special.

    giant robots fighting, great effects, awesome action and more focus on the TFs then in the first...it was great. Oh and unlike a lot of people I really liked the Twins

    I sort of agree. I think the second one moved away from characters, and tried to cram it full of robots. Too overwhelming. I can see flaws in his movies, but overall I do like his stuff. I love some TMNT, but ninja's aren't that big on explosions.

    i was going to say the same thing.

    crititcally, people do not like his movies.

    commercially, the box office dollars do not lie.


    sigh.....and i loved TMNT

    Ok I actually like the Transformers movies on the whole. The key words there being "on the whole" they are overrun with problems and material that should have been left on the cutting room floor.

    That said my reaction to this news was "Oh dear God no!" Bay is all about guns and explosions how is that right for Ninja Turtles? John Woo would be more appropriate!

    Sure in the original comics the turtles cursed and were more violent so if the new movie was darker I'd be okay but I really don't want to see the toilet humor that plagued the Transformers movies (or movies in general these days to be honest0 IT'S NOT FUNNY!!!!!

    the only scene I can imagine Bay right for would be the Technodrome emerging from underground and blasting the city apart.

    It isn't just amongst Transformers fans. His movies are full of refrigerator logic, the problem is I think most people either A) don't get up to go the fridge or B) Never turn their brain on to begin with or C) don't care because fill-in-the-blank.

    I agree we shouldn't expect Shakespeare (which there is some irony in that statement) but I don't want to settle for someone who every movie I watch I can't even think about thinking or I want to turn it off.

    I probably would have laughed my ass off at the sheer number of asterisks if you had posted what you said.

    But how many of Michael Bay's films have failed? Some may not like them, but they have been succesful from a financial point of view, and that is certainly ALL Paramount or any other studio cares about.

    So, then this new TMNT film will be about everyone but the TMNT and focus on the emotional issues of the people around them, right?? That is the jist I got from Transformers.

    No, because I’m sure having the Turtles in every other scene won’t be as expensive as having the movie Transformers be at the for-front of every scene. At the end of the day, that's what it comes down to, money.

    made the mistake of reading that thread. yep, same instant bickering, name calling, and swear words I remember....
    opinion: these film makers making this movie are not turtle fans. hired kevin eastman to bring them up to speed. hired some cheap writers with no credits to their name(14 entries each on imdb) . Made TONS of last minute changes to keep up with rightful fan uproar.....I still say Eric sachs WAS shredder at one point until they did pick ups with some nameless japanese actor in the shadows, but it was too late to get rid of the eric character......ugh. I really hope my advance instincts are right and I don't end up liking this things ;o)....


     
    Apparently they also totally ditch the Splinter origin....so pretty much the only thing Japanese in this are the marital arts weapons. sigh..

    You can't pretend like his movies are not a success
    just because you don't like him, that's silly. They chose him because they know it will NOT fail with him.
