>Maybe Paramount figured it's a better idea and cheaper to work on the script a bit more instead of ending up with the mess of reshooting and pulling back the GI JOE movie a year because test audiences hated it?
It's an idea.... or maybe someone flinched over 80's toy remakes? Not that TMNT is EXACTLY a toy-based property, but it's the toys and cartoon folks remember.... moreso than the comic.
>I wonder if it was the bad word of mouth the project has been getting? There was a pretty big backlash against Bay's "re-imagining" the Turtles into aliens instead of actual mutant turtles.
Oh, I SOOOOOO hope.... Perhaps marketing has a problem with the logo. "Teenage Alien Invader Ninja Turtles" isn't quite the same....
