TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Reboot Working Title Revealed

The working title for Paramount/Jonathan Liebesman's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has been confirmed, but it not only drops 'Mutant' from the title. More details after the jump.

The past week or two has seen a frenzy of news related to the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Now, "Turtlegate" seemingly continues as Bleeding Cool confirms the working title for Paramount's upcoming TMNT reboot (from producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman). After Bay's comments on the Turtles being "from an alien race", many have speculated that they won't exactly be mutants in this film. Another key word is dropped from the title, as the working title is said to be Ninja Turtles. Bleeding Cool hasn't been able to verify why the studio decided to go with the title change, and their sources aren't even sure if the Turtles will be adolescents in the movie.

One of their sources commented on the name change, "It seems to be driven by marketing. Think of John Carter and how Disney wouldn’t allow for a title with either “Princess” or “Mars”." What do you think of the possible title change?

Ninja Turtles is set to be released December 25th, 2013.
