We now have the working title and some more info about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, thanks to our friends at Bleeding Cool. Paramount-Nickelodeon's movie being produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Libesman is going by the working title of Ninja Turtles. So not only will “Mutant” be removed, but so will "Teenage."
No official statement has been released as to why this decision was made. Here is what a source close to the project had to say:
It seems to be driven by marketing. Think of John Carter and how Disney wouldn’t allow for a title with either “Princess” or “Mars”.
Do you think it is a mistake to not have the turtles as teenagers in the movie?
