Michael Bay and the rest of Platinum Dunes will oversee the launch of a new live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film.
The film marks the first non-horror remake for Platinum Dunes, who will team with Paramount and Nickelodeon to re-adapt the property.
The franchise, which began as a black and white comic book series in 1984, rose to tremendous popularity when it became an animated series in 1987. Following the first live-action film in 1990, the series spawned two live-action sequels, a live-action television series, a second animated series and a CGI feature film.
I can tell you right away that this particular author is incredibly fearful to see Michael Bay in control of my beloved childhood franchise. He’s already completely screwed up Transformers, but I was never way into them anyway. If he gives my Ninja Turtles the same treatment, there will be no words for the ferocity of my response.
