Bay to Produce Ninja Turtles Live Action Film

Michael Bay seems to just have his awesome fingers in everything lately, and now adding to an already full dance card, he has signed a deal to produce the on again off again live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

ScreenJunkies shares:

Michael Bay and his team of lovable misfits (Brad Fuller and Andrew Form) have inked a deal with Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon to produce a live-action reboot of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. The group is scheduled to meet with writers in the next few weeks

Now there are a lot of Bay Haters already climbing all over this suggesting that Bay’s involvement is a strike against the hopes of seeing a Ninja Turtles live action film revival.

But honestly, go watch the original live action Turtles film. They are so filled with cheese and camp and do not hold up well over time at all. Really? Vanilla Ice! Ok, if he cameos – that would rock.

I hope Bay goes more for the gritty more serious mood found in the original Eastman and Laird graphic comics that left the silliness in the concept and moved forward instead of the goofball surfer Turtles we got with the animated series.

I liked the animated series, and the graphic and violent original black and white comics were awesome too. But two different appeals there.

Considering this is going to be marketed at a younger demographic its unlikely they would make it so gritty. But more towards the feel of the last animated film would be nice.
