Michael Bay tells fans to ‘chill’ over Ninja Turtles remake

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were shocked when they read in a magazine that director Michael Bay wanted to change the story line of the film. They didn't even want to order pizza after.

After a firestorm of toxic criticism was flung at director Michael Bay over his plan to re-boot Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, he is now telling fans to take a chill pill.

Bay let a few of his plans for the film slip, including changing the turtles’ origin to outer space, rather than their original back story of touching radioactive sewer goo.

“These turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable,” Bay said.

His plan prompted outrage from Turtle fans who accused the director of crushing their childhood memories. Bay fired back, telling fans their panic is premature.

“Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story,” Bay said in a statement, according to TMZ.

“Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world,” he added.

We’re not so sure diehard fans are interested in Bay’s “richer world,” but we are curious to see how this whole thing turns out.
