The Lair detailed the fans’ unhappiness thus far: First rumored that the turtles would be aliens, and later confirmed in a leaked script, then Bay officially announces the movie title as “Ninja Turtles” dropping the flagship words “Mutant” and “Teenage”. Things got even worse when paramount announced a delay in production signing the movie being in trouble.

Now Evan Daugherty (Snow White And The Huntsman) has rewritten the script and the film is now in production.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher.

The film is set to hit theaters June 6th, 2014.
