New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live-Action Movie!

teenage mutant ninja turtles live action remake New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live Action Movie!

The re-make machine is now targeting our childhood by bringing back our favorite crime-fighting mutated turtles to the big screen. The project is said to focus on the origins of the team and will bring our heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael and the wise master Splinter together for a new live-action adventure.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles celebrate their 25th anniversary next month as we look back at their debut in the 1984 comic book that led to cartoons, a series of live-action films followed by an animated 3-D film, a pile of video games and a ton of toy merchandise (including the awesome Cowabunga Carl Party Van with built-in Pizza shooter! You know what I’m talking about).

As cool as this may be to see another live-action incarnation after 16 years, I’m not sure a modern live-action TMNT film will fly amongst today’s audiences. Nevertheless, I’m excited to see what this movie will bring and I’m sure it’ll correct the disaster that was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III.

What do you think of a live-action TMNT remake (not associated with 2007′s TMNT animated movie)?

The movie is scheduled for release in 2011.

  1. I want Ian Mckeller as Splinter!!!!


  2. This very good news to me. I grew up with the 80′s cartoon, owned almost all the Ninja Turtles toy figures are playsets which i wish kept till this day instead of listening to my mother,lol and of-course seen All 3 Ninja Turtle films in theaters. I loved the first film cause it was action packed and i was surprised when i first saw it that it had Casey Jones in it. The second film wasnt as great as the first but was still entertaining and worth seeing. As for the third film, they could of done better with it like introduce the Rat King or somthing. I also watched Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation cause most people consider that series takes place after the films ended. I didnt care much for the series cause it didnt have the feel even with it being live action. As the new Ninja Turtles cartoon, i still liked the 80′s series more and i havnt seen TMNT film yet so i cant comment on it. ON personal not, i loved Shredder’s helmet in the 2nd movie. The guy who played Shredder in both films did a awesome job and i liked how Corey Fieldman portrayed Donatello’s voice. Bottom line is i hope this remake lives pretty close to the original.

  3. What about Krang?! He was the leader of all the bad guys! lol. There`s nothing scarier than an evil brain! (with arms)

  4. Btw, i still remember my pops taking me and a couple friends to see the original in the theatre and almost crapping in my shorts from being so excited, lol.

  5. @ steve,

    The good ol’ days!

    I remember talking with my buds back in early elementary school about having Krang in the sequels, too bad it never happened. I can’t picture them putting that in a new live-action movie without some drastic changes though :(

  6. So we all love the first TMNT movie and the second is not horrible but the third one was horse manure. The most recent flick had its ups and downs but focused more on Leo and Raph so I am hoping that the new assignment will involve the turtles as a whole.


  7. Damn, all this talk of TMNT makes me think about that horrendous game that came out for the NES, do you guys remember that one?? I tried so hard to beat it but it was downright impossible… And the worst thing is, other than the way the characters appeared, nothing in the game had anything to do with the ninja turtles universe… WTF??? They had killer robot things, weird flying bats, music ripped straight from another game not related to ninja turtles, impossible hard platformer parts of the game, the news van shot missiles, come on…

  8. I’m so stoked the first teenage mutant ninja turtles move is still to this day my favorite movie from my childhood just priceless. Can’t wait to see how this one turns out, im so exited but their going to have to do alot to even come close to how good the original is.


  10. Michelangelo shreds.

  11. I Just Hope Vanilla ICe NoT In IT
