Iron Man writers take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The long rumoured return of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is being fast tracked for a 2012 release and Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are diligently working on a script.

Worst Previews reports:

Paramount has brought on the writing team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man, Punisher: War Zone) to put together a new script. “The studio is looking at this as its next huge franchise, like Transformers,” a source told Deadline.

The studio is fast-tracking the project and wants a first draft by October so it can begin searching for a director and finally release the film by 2012.

This is being proposed as a live action film, and while the hokey goofball version in the 90s just doesn’t hold up, the recent Animated version is a step in the direction I would rather see them do. At least in tone.

But live action will be hard to pull off. If they go with “man in suit” Turtles, but I can’t see that working. More likely it will be CG Turtles with “man in mo-cap suit” instead. But if they mess up and don’t make these Turtles beyond realistic, then it has no chance.

To mix my metaphors, “Do or do not. There is no try” Words of wisdom from another fictional green character.
