Sad, sad news.
We are going to have to wait at least another year to see what Michael Bay does with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
The planned reboot, which was already in pre-production in Vancouver, has been SHUT DOWN by Paramount Pictures because of script problems.
The future of the movie is uncertain too. Some sources say production has simply been pushed back by 10 weeks, but others claim the hiatus is "indefinite."
It doesn't sound like

Michael Bay is doing all sorts of wrong to the fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. First he announced that Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, and Leonardo were going to be from an alien planet in his live-action reboot, which quickly prompted outrage on the internet.
NOW he's announced that the title of the highly-anticipated film will be shortened to simply Ninja Turtles.
Surprise, surprise…fans are pissed. He last told the disappointed masses on his website to "take a breath, and chill." In response to the most recent outrage over the name change, he's not citing "a more complex back story," but pointing fingers at the studio in charge of this operation, writing:

Oh no! Now who's gonna train the Ninja Turtles??
This massive white rat (3 feet long with tail) was killed after being speared with a pitchfork in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.
Appaently Hugeass rats is a real problem in the area.
“They come out at night and the daytime,”
Confessed one horrified local. Another resident told BlackandBrownNews.com about a frantic scene in which rats began scrambling across the nearby playground:
“Adults had to grab children and run because a lot of rats came on the playground. The kids were screaming.”
WTF?? Something reeelly needs be done about this insane infestation. Hopefully this pic of the man-sized monster will gain some attention to the area pest problem.
P.S. Splinter was brown, so to the best of our knowledge Leonardo, Raphae, Michelangelo, and Donatello still have their master.

Ninja Turtles and Transformers action figures are great…but can they get ill like MCA, Mike D, and The King Ad-Rock??? Didn't think so!
Check out the brand new Beastie Boys action figures (above) which you've hopefully seen previously in the group's Spike Jonze-directed Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win music video, featuring Santigold.
If you haven't seen that GENIUS video, check it out HERE, and then check out the website and order a set of the action figures. They only cost $750!
And no, we're not kidding about that price tag…but at least your $$$ will be going to charities that are dedicated to fighting childhood cancer. Can't say no to that!
Will U order a set or two of Beastie Boys action figures?

Ready to get all types of nostalgic?
Back in November, we heard that Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes were putting together a new Ninja Turtles screenplay.
Haven't heard many updates on that project since then, but in the meanwhile, Ninja Turtle fans can be excited to know that a new animated TV series is in the works (above).
Looks like the series will be premiering on Nickelodeon in late 2012.
Very cool! Nice to know that a new generation of kids will get the opportunity to be exposed to the awesomeness that is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Will U watch the new Ninja Turtles show? If not, will you show it to your kids?
