So the last TMNT movie was dookie. We saw that coming. But considering Hollywood’s recent fascination with restoring profitable film franchises, Ninja Turtles fans might finally get what they’ve been yearning for.
Co-creator Peter Laird spoke with MTV News about the recent developments with the new live-action Turtles film. “The basic idea, as I understand it, is to do an all live action shoot, with actors and stuntmen in full Turtle suits…I can say that at this point there are a lot of positive feelings about a Batman Begins-style ‘reboot,’ which would, of necessity, include a retelling of the Turtles’ origin story,” Laird told MTV News.
Laird also spoke about the importance of the franchise’s most infamous villain, Shredder, and his involvement within the film’s storyline. And for kicks he also mentioned the possibilities of April O’Neil and Casey Jones appearing in the film. TMNT is in dire need of a worthy reboot and hopefully things pan out with this new reboot.
