Michael Bay reveals a whole new origin story for everyone's favourite shell-heads!
Things have been a little dark on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot front until now, so Michael Bay elected to drop a bombshell (pun fully intended) to the press this week: it turns out the Turtles will be extraterresterial aliens from another world this time around! "When you see this movie," says Bay, "Kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist. These turtles are from an alien race and are tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable." It sounds like a risky proposition at first, but this kind of move has worked for the likes of Sherlock and Spider-Man in recent times, so I wouldn't advise getting as wound up as the majority of the fanbase seem to have done as of late until we've actually seen the first shots and trailers for the film. For now, anyway, the new TMNT movie is set for release on Christmas Day 2013.
