TMNT Are Officially Back From Obscurity

Are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finally going to get the vehicle they deserve? Technology and a whole new generation of impressionable kids are giving them a new lease on movie life.

We've been speculating about the return of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for some time, but finally some official details have come out.

Producer of the new film Scott Mednick told Variety, that this picture would be much better than we anticipated - instead of an all CG mutated turtle, they may employ face-replacement technology, which would be a lot more expensive, but allow for better facial expressions. Still it makes sense as they will surely want to introduce the franchise to a new group of kiddies who have higher expectations for FX.

The announcement also confirms the rumors that the next TMNT movie will focus on the origins of our heroes (and let's hope Shredder as well). And here's hoping Sam Rockwell is back as the head thug's father or something.

They're hoping to release the film in 2011.

In celebration, the original film will be screening at the New York Tribeca Film Festival at 6:30 PM tonight.
