After receiving plenty of criticism and bad press, Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman's upcoming Ninja Turtles movie reboot seems to be heading into the right direction. After a less than stellar leaked script, the movie has been rewritten by Snow White And The Huntsman scribe Evan Daugherty, according to TMNT Lair. The movie has now, according to the same site, been renamed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as per a logo showed by Paramount Pictures during their CinemaCon presentation. One of the many complaints about the film was the original decision to go with Ninja Turtles, which dropped the words "Teenage" and "Mutant". So what do you guys think? Are the Turtles mutant again and not some ancient aliens mumbo jumbo?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher. Currently in production, the film is set to hit theaters June 6th, 2014.

Though Bay's involvement doesn't exactly have me thrilled, I'm keeping my mouth shut until I actually see something..

So re-written? So...I'm assuming that's why we are also now getting Shredder instead of that Col. Schrader crap. Good.

I wonder what other changes were made in addition.

Let me give a big shout out to my boy Giorgio Tsoukalos for representing the ancient aliens couldn't have made this possible with out him. Lets hope midget splinter rocks and the douche bags play the turtles are funny. Thank you and goodnight San Diego.

still going to suck
StrangerX - 4/19/2013, 6:25 AM
Well I guess this is cool, but it would be nice if I could leave my [frick]ing house.
BigDamnHero - 4/19/2013, 6:31 AM
It's being re-written or has been re-written? Cause if they're still writing this, it's in even more trouble than previously speculated.

Oh god a step in a good direction finally

Turtles better not be from another planet.
MTrevinos - 4/19/2013, 8:30 AM
Thats a good step in the right direction. Let us find a way to fire Megan Fox lol. Plenty of good actresses that would be perfect for the role.
TheFirstAvenger97 - 4/19/2013, 8:49 AM
^ agreed.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. ...NOT TEENAGE MUTANT "ALIEN" TURTLES, ¡¡¡Cool!!!

Snow White and the huntsman is pretty good, some acting was pretty bad... (Meaning mostly Stewart)... But lets see how this ends up...

ninja turtles sounds good teenage mutant is kinda long dont you think? personally i feel that the more they stray away from new exciting ideas, the more theyre going to let me down.
evyllsummer - 4/19/2013, 10:55 AM
Well, I hate Michael Bay with the fire of ten thousand suns, but, if they made changes to the screenplay (and the title) to assuage the fans, I actually respect that.
cbcurry - 4/19/2013, 10:55 AM
N***S!
AstroZombie - 4/19/2013, 11:03 AM
They should just call it "Dead On Arrival."
SuperAwesomeBadassness - 4/19/2013, 11:07 AM
Great, now let's just NOT make them aliens.
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/19/2013, 11:27 AM
This better be [frick]ing good! Its enough torture to know that Megan Fox will be part of it.
hartley07 - 4/19/2013, 11:33 AM
I thought i read the plot description somewhere and it was: aliens invade, then MAKE the turtles, and the turtles fight the aliens. I'll wait to see the reviews say actually happens before i see it.
hartley07 - 4/19/2013, 11:33 AM
the title change gives me a little hope. not much, but a little.
SimonPhoenix - 4/19/2013, 11:35 AM
@ Stranger X. Guessing your in Boston then? Be safe bro. Good luck and I hope they catch that scumbag.
Luigi - 4/19/2013, 11:42 AM
It wil still suck. HARD.
Batman1991 - 4/19/2013, 11:47 AM
Renamed because of marketing... Not because they care for the fans.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/19/2013, 12:42 PM
Wow! Most unlikely thing I thought I'd hear today!
MetropolisKid - 4/19/2013, 12:44 PM
are the turtles gonna be cgi? like scooby doo? because if they are then it's a waste of time.
AdamX - 4/19/2013, 12:59 PM
Their gonna be sneaky about it. Changing the name doesn't make it a better movie, whats the synopsis of the film gonna be?
Durf - 4/19/2013, 1:15 PM
The title change is the first good thing to come out about this movie
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/19/2013, 1:16 PM
MetropolisKid@ Its gonna be motion capture like Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
parascythe - 4/19/2013, 1:27 PM
@adamx -5 teenage alien comes to earth and decided to be 4 turtles and a rat...using the all spark and a ninja scroll to make genetic mutation with themselves...as the power of the all spark and ninja scroll focused on them when suddenly... Poof!!! They became coco crunch!
ed0634 - 4/19/2013, 1:28 PM
They were always "earth" turtles the ooze was made by Kranng who is for space/dimension x the new title is fine if they do a second film ninja turtles should be the title
