Michael Bay’s take on The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been postponed 10 weeks by Paramount Pictures. Ninja Turtles will no longer be looking at a Christmas Day 2013 release date, but now May 14, 2014 to rival Marvel Studios’ upcoming untitled film.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that the reason behind this delay is due to script issues. This isn’t surprising since the script involves changing the turtles from mutants to aliens, which would mean the entire back story of the Ninja Turtles will need to be changed as well. Damn you Hollywood!
Will this new adaption by Michael Bay be as successful as his take on the Transformers franchise? I guess we’ll have to wait until May 14, 2014 to find out!
