Everyone's favorite crime-fighting turtles are back, in the upcoming Michael Bay-produced "Ninja Turtles". The new film is being directed by Jonathan Liebesman ("Wrath of the Titans") and we just received word that it is set to start filming this April in New York.
Bay stated a couple of months ago that the turtles would be of alien origin in the film, and this was received with mixed reactions. Bay defended his previous statement by saying, "Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie."
Bay continued, "This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE'S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN."
