Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live Action Confirmed

The animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie blew me away. Aside from visually stunning, the franchise grew up (a little) and offered a REAL sequel that actually showed a progression in the storyline. It was amazing.

So what is the logical step to move forward with. Rebooting the live action franchise. Obviously.

Mirage Group, which owns the property, is moving forward with a live-action film focusing on the origins of the iconic crime fighters.

The project, targeted for release in 2011, would mark the fifth big screen outing for the sewer-dwelling heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael as well as their master Splinter.

Now while I really like the Ninja Turtles, I really don’t see a market for a live action Turtles movie. There is a nostalgia factor to throw the old movies into the DVD player, but before you start cheering for another live action Turtles movie.

Don’t believe me. Go ahead and pop it in. I know you have a copy. I will wait here.

Done? Good.

Now when they cast Corey Feldman to voice an animatronics man-in-suit acrobat it won’t be as cool as you are thinking.

They might pull some Avatar CG miracle and make some believable kickass live action Turtles. But I am just not buying it yet.
