Live Action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Update. NOT HAPPENING!!

Just yesterday Doug posted news about a new Live Action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie. I don’t blame him for talking about the news since it reported right from the mouth of Kevin Eastman, Turtles co-creator and current editor of Heavy Metal Magazine. You think the guy would know. But guess what?

Its not true. Stephen Murphy’s Blog, The 5th Turtle says:

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” writer Stephen Murphy wrote on his Blog that “This is complete nonsense and entirely untrue.”

I think this is fine news indeed. The news of another liveaction Turtles movie turned my stomach. The original live action “man in suit” rubber turtles was good for its time, clearly geared for a younger demographic, but it had its value.
But technology has outgrown that sort of movie. The rubber suit is out dated, especially for a martial arts character. They could have a live action movie with MoCapture CG Turtles in it and it would pass as believable. And last year’s TMNT animated feature was SO GOOD I quite figured if they sequeled anything, it would be that movie with another CGAnimated feature. It still retained some of that kiddie “Cowabunga dude” while moving it back to a more serious storyline with a taste of grim reality.

No word on whether the 2007 CG animated feature will be getting a sequel, but I hope so!
