If you still haven’t recovered from the bloated spectacle that was the "Transformers" Trilogy (more coming!) you might want to hide some more of your beloved childhood action figures.
We’ve got Michael Bay news.
In case you missed it, Bay is producing a new version of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Because we’ve gotten dumber as a society since the heroes in a half-shell first made their debut in the mid 80’s, the title has been simplified to “Ninja Turtles,” removing any extra words and plot points, so our primitive modern brains can fully comprehend it.
The film is set to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the man who made the very dumb, but still entertaining killer tooth fairy movie "Darkness Falls." "Turtles"even has a release date: May 16, 2014.
New rumors are swirling across the internets these days that production is officially set to begin this April --- imagine that! --- in New York City.
You heard it fanboys, this is our Occupy Wall Street moment. Time to get off the couches in our parent’s basements, put down those extra-sided die and head to the Big Apple in April to protest Michael Bay’s latest attempt to urinate all over our collective childhoods!
Together we stand! Together we … ah who am I kidding? We’re all going to see this movie opening weekend like a bunch of suckers and then spend the next six months complaining about it anonymously on the internet. Because we’re fanboys and gals. It’s what we do.
