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.
