Director Michael Bay can’t seem to catch a break with his Ninja Turtles reboot, which was postponed today by Paramount Pictures. You may remember a few months back, fans of the popular TV show and live action films were up in arms over Michael Bay’s decision to rewrite the Ninja Turtles as “aliens.”
“Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script.” – Michael Bay
Originally planned to be released Christmas Day, 2013, the studio has now postponed it by 10 weeks, resulting in a May 16, 2014 release. Apparently the studio is hoping to cut $10-20 million from the budget through this move, bringing it down to a reported $125 million. Given the uproar the last time his Ninja Turtles reboot hit a snag, Bay might be rethinking his decision to remake the popular 1990 live action feature, which resulted in two sequels. The turtles are being shot with motion capture CGI, much like what we’ve seen in Peter Jackson’s epic remake of King Kong, which was also used in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
