Last week Michael Bay responded to all the talk about the new alien origins of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in his company's upcoming reboot of the property.
This week, Bay has followed that up with a second statement - this time about the talk of the title change to just "Ninja Turtles". Bay says on his official site:
"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.
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."
