Well, if the Karate Kid Remake, where he learned Kung Fu, can turn a profit... Why not?

It won't get my money...

To be fair, in "The Karate Kid" the name was there simply for the recognition and in the movie it does point out that it's not the martial art form the kid in the movie is learning.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

I'm curious only to the extent that I'm wondering, what's "mutant" about the turtles if they are just extraterrestrial?

I agree that this has fail all but stamped on its forehead. Whether this is the way it's going to go down or not, of course I don't know yet, but I can see it going down this way:
"Remember back when the TMNTs were just 'mutated' turtles? Everyone knows mutation doesn't really work that way. Don't get me wrong, because I grew up on that, but kids today have much higher standards. We've finally fixed it. Now the turtles are even more awesome, because it's so much more believable. And now the old fans can finally be happy, because this is what it always should have been."
Ugh.

Does sound like they're overthinking it.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

The movie may as well be about Teenage Gorn from space since they wouldn't be Turtles or Mutants. Just alien lifeforms that look turtle-esque for the sake coincidence.

This is the internet, why would I want to be fair about a movie I didn't see?

So its a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film that doesn't feature teenage mutant ninja turtles. No need to bother watching that then.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

Wasn't there a plot in the cartoon a few years back where Shredder was an alien? I remember there being aliens in it.

Maybe they'll crash on Earth as babies and then be mutated. Teenage Mutant Ninja Alien Turtles

Wonder if Splinter will still be from Earth.

Unless it's a bit of misdirection, and the Turtles somehow get transported to another planet/dimension and the movie takes place there, in that case technically they'd be aliens

Damn you Michael Bay. First the Transformers and now the Ninja Turtles. What's next? My little Pony without Ponies and played by the cast of Sex in the City?

Michael Bay is not directing the next TMNT movie, he's only producing it. And, again, I suspect he was tongue-in-cheeking there a bit probably knowing how people would react.

Yes he is producing it and he's the one talking about it and since when has the guy ever acted like he was saying something with his tongue in cheek?
