Michael Bay is making a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie where the turtles are aliens. Someone should send him a copy of Highlander II.—

Growing up one of our favorite shows were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The television series was so popular, they even made several movies using costumes instead of animation.
With that said, fans of the series were both happy and a little confused when they heard Michael Bay was bringing the turtles back to the big screen. The wealthy director is planning to have the turtles mutate into …aliens?
From Cinema Blend:
Michael Bay has gotten very, very rich by making movies about alien races who come down to earth and cause a bunch of mayhem. And even though the Transformers franchise seems set to continue with Transformers 4 in the works, Bay is apparently set on expanding his alien creature empire– even when it makes no sense whatsoever to do so. With his company Platinum Dunes in charge of the Christmas 2013 release of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, Bay spoke to press at the Nickelodeon Upfront in New York last week to talk about his plans for the movie– and let it slip that the turtles this time around are going to be aliens.
TMNT fans, prepare to have Michael Bay destroy your childhood the same way he's already done with mine. Three words: They are aliens.—

Michael Bay is re-making Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If Michael Bay destroys this classic, he will surely be sacrificed for his mistakes.—

Between Transformers and TMNT, I'm now convinced that Michael Bay had the worst childhood ever.—
