Turtles will be aliens from space says producer (no, seriously) . . .
In the planned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) they will be aliens . . . from space.
Here’s what Platinum Dunes producer Michael Bay recently had to say about the planned big screen movie:
“When you see this movie, kids will believe one day that these turtles do exist. These turtles are from an alien race, and they’re going to be tough, edgy, funny, and completely lovable.”
First we thought perhaps Bay is ignorant had his origin stories mixed up, but then we remembered that Platinum Dunes was the same company that made the ill-fated 2009 Friday the 13th remake in which serial killer Jason Voorhees was re-imagined as a marijuana farmer . . .
So there you have it: teenage mutant ninja turtles . . . from space!
