Paramount may have canceled Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie production.
Movie Producer and Hitler afficiando Michael Bay had a lot of great (read: horrible) ideas for his film adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. First came the revalation that the turtles would no longer be mutated turtles, but instead members of an alien race (possibly a race of transforming robots). Fans were even more dismayed to learn that Shia LeBeouf would be donning a busty yellow jumpsuit to play the role of April O'Neil. Despite the filmmaker's past success at the box office with the clinically brain-dead audiences, however, executives at Paramount may be shutting down the Turtles production for good.
THR is reporting that production on the movie, originally slated for holiday release in 2013, has been halted, and the pre-production crew fired "indefinitely." Other sources are saying that the production has been pushed back only ten weeks. Paramount has been pushing back films willy nilly lately, first delaying the release of GI Joe: Retaliation in order to include more shirtless scenes of Channing Tatum, and then sending Brad Pitt's World War Z back to have LOST creator Damon Lindelof make the ending more disappointing. Paramount has not officially commented on the move, instead trusting rampant speculation and predictions of doom from reclusive internet nerds to bolster confidence in the movie's future.
