“It’s the ooze!”
In an exclusive interview with Moviefone.com, Michael Bay confirmed that his Ninja Turtles will not be aliens:
“There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not. It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.” – Michael Bay, Moviefone.com
To add, TMNT Lair is reporting that Paramount has announced that the film has been renamed as the film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the script has been rewritten by Snow White and the Huntsman scribe Evan Daugherty.
