Michael Bay On Ninja Turtles’ “Simplified” Title

Michael Bay has taken to his blog again to defend the fact that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies will now just be called Ninja Turtles

“Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple.”

Well, yeah, that worked dandy for John Carter didn’t it? He continues:

“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.”

Next week, we expect the hear that the Turtles have been renamed Kanye, Jay Z, Lil Wayne and Snoop to make them more appealing and relevant to the kids of today. [via Michael Bay]
