Today, the battle for the soul of the pugilistic amphibians continues with a href="http://www.tmz.com/2012/03/21/michael-bay-april-oneal-leonardo#.T2r7H2I5L-Q" title=""news that Brian Tochi, who played Leonardo in the "classic" 1990 film, is backing the Transformers director/a. "If Michael Bay wants to do a different take on the turtles origin story ... a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazel_tov" title=""emmazel tov/em/a!" he told TMZ./pp/ppFans took to Twitter and Facebook in anger after Bay unveiled proposals to change the turtles to extraterrestrials (as opposed to mutants who gain anthropomorphic powers after encountering mysterious radioactive ooze). The famously outspoken film-maker was forced to release a terse statement in which he said fans should "take a breath, and chill" since they had "not read the script"./pp/ppTochi's support for Bay perhaps outranks Rist's vilification, as Leonardo is the blue-headband-sporting leader of the Turtles – though it is unlikely to be popular with the director's critics. For the record Judith Hoag, who played reporter April O'Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is also supporting the director, though she admits she may have ulterior motives. "I was in a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/movie/68266/armageddon" title=""Armageddon/a ... which Michael directed ... as well as a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/movie/135708/nightmare-on-elm-street" title=""A Nightmare on Elm Street/a and a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/movie/140297/i-am-number-four" title=""I Am Number Four/a, which he produced," she told TMZ./pp/ppBay is producing the new film, tentatively titled Ninja Turtles, through his Platinum Dunes company, which is perhaps best known for its critic-baiting remakes of classic 1970s and 80s horror films, including a a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/movie/97323/texas.chainsaw.massacre" title=""2003 version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre/a and the a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/movie/105855/amityville.horror" title=""2005 reworking of The Amityville Horror/a.
