I thought they cancelled the movie though? Or was that just some random rumor.
About as random and baseless, I imagine, as the rumour that Bay is changing the origin story of the turtles.
he intended to change their origins from radioactive waste spilling onto sewer turtles into them being aliens from another planet.
Bay made a comment that they were considering giving the 'Ninja Turtles' (that being the title so that they could make them older or vary their ages to give a different level of depth to the turtles) an alien origin.
The problem is that other than those live action movies some of us grew up with, the TMNT's already have an alien origin.
It defies the whole basis of their origins and even the name Teenage "Mutant" Ninja "Turtles". This caused massive amounts of rage in fans.

The turtles became what they did through exposure to the ooze. In the comics, where all of this stuff originates, the ooze is a creation of the Utroms who are, in fact, an alien race.
The ninja turtles were exposed to an alien mutagen that turned them into anthropomorphic beings who were later trained in martial arts. With the exception of the move 'Secret of the Ooze' (which gave the ooze a human origin) the turtles have always had an alien origin.
The big difference is that Bay hinted towards the fact that the ninja turtles in the movie that he, amongst others, is producing may not have an alien origin that is simply them exposed to a by-product of some aliens.
I for one, will judge the movie based on what I see, not on something a producer uses as a teaser for a movie in which he/she is not a script-writer for.
